Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.


Special session proposals are accepted until:

October 17, 2019


If you wish to propose a new Special Session please kindly fill out and submit this Expression of Interest form.

Scope

The interaction between light and small clusters of nanoscale metallic and/or dielectric components has been a recent subject of extensive experimental and theoretical research. Knowledge and understanding of the near- and far-field optical responses from individual and coupled nanoparticles have led to an unprecedented development in the fields of molecular optics, optical antenna design, surface enhanced spectroscopies, bio/chemical sensing, light guiding, solar cell system, information storage and other. Research of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale now presents an opportunity to build on the existing work or/and establish novel directions for this area of research.

We invite researchers to contribute with original research ideas that will stimulate the continuing reports to exploit the great potential that light-matter interaction have for real life applications but also to develop this field for future nanophotonic devices.

Scope

Biomedical optics is a stimulating and growing research field with increasing number of publications in the last 30 years. With the objective of developing noninvasive optical methods for diagnosis and treatment, this research field covers various topics, such as light propagation and interaction in tissues, fluorescence, Raman or terahertz spectroscopy and imaging, biosensing and bioimaging, light scattering and optical clearing methods, laser tweezers, photodynamic medicine and nanobiophotonics.
The objective of the biomedical optics session is to present and discuss the most recent advances in these topics and point out the future research trends to develop noninvasive optical methods for clinical practice.
