International Photochemistry Conference ICP2013

The 26th International Conference on Photochemistry (ICP 2013), will be held in the beautiful city of Leuven, Belgium from July 21st until July 26th 2013.

The International Conference on Photochemistry has a long-standing tradition of bringing together world-leading scientists working in all areas of fundamental and applied photochemistry and related sciences. The conference will be of interest to all those involved in using light to initiate and study chemical, physical and biological processes in matter. Topics covered include novel developments in spectroscopy and microscopy, single molecule spectroscopy, plasmonics and photonics, photochemistry in polymers and material science, photochemistry in sustainable technology, basic photochemistry, labels, ultrafast spectroscopy, inorganic and theoretical photochemistry, photochemistry in biology, among others.

The program of ICP2013 will consist of 10 plenary sessions, more than 25 invited lectures, more than 100 oral presentations and 3 poster sessions, which will all be condensed into 3 parallel and 10 thematic sessions distributed over six days. We are very happy to already announce the opening lecture on Sunday evening by professor Stefan Hell.
