Trieste, 21-25 MAY 2018: Conference on the Complex Interactions of Light and Biological Matter: Experiments meet Theory

On 21 - 25 May 2018 in Trieste, Italy, the Conference on the Complex Interactions of Light and Biological Matter: Experiments meet Theory takes place. A conference for experimentalists and theoreticians investigating the photophysics and photochemistry behind the interaction of light with the organic material that make up living systems.

07 January 2018

About the conference

This Conference will be a venue for scientists from all over the world working in biochemistry, physical chemistry and physics to discuss interactions between light and biological matter or its molecular building blocks. Synergy among experimentalists and theoreticians is crucial to understand the diversity of phenomena and the fundamental processes that govern the complex interaction of light with living matter.

The programme will include oral keynote invited presentations on the most recent developments, given both by high-profile senior scientists and junior researchers as well as contributed short talks and poster presentations. Nora Ventosa, from the NANOMOL group, is one of the invited speakers. 


  • Theoretical advances in modelling electronic excited states in biologically-relevant systems, including charge and energy transfer processes
  • Photophysics and photochemistry of soft matter through time-dependent spectroscopic techniques
  • State-of-the-art developments and applications of linear and nonlinear optical techniques for the imaging of biological systems in cells and tissues
  • Emerging fluorescence and luminescence.
