7–11 September 2008
The XIII International Symposium on Luminescence Spectroscopy (ISLS 2008)—“Analytical Luminescence: New Diagnostic Tools in Life Science, Food Safety and Cultural Heritage”—will be held on 7–11 September 2008 in Bologna, Italy. It is being organized by the University of Bologna Alma Mater Studiorum.
ISLS represents a traditional scientific appointment for scientists involved in all the aspects of luminescence spectrometry, from photoluminescence and electrogenerated luminescence to bio- and chemiluminescence. The meeting will create a forum for in-depth, informed discussions regarding both basic science and applications in biosciences, pharmaceutical, environmental, and food analysis.
Bologna is an ideal setting for scientific, social, and cultural experiences. Its rich artistic tradition, numerous gastronomic specialities, and the warm-heartedness of its citizens have been appreciated by visitors from all over the world. The University of Bologna–Alma Mater Studiorum is the oldest university in the Western world.
Contributions are invited for oral and poster presentations at the ISLS 2008. The abstract submission deadline is 15 April 2008.
