About ICL

International Conference on Luminescence (ICL) is a long-standing conference being held every three years.

In past decade, it has been held in Lyon (France, 2008), Ann Arbor (USA, 2011), Wrocalw (Poland, 2014), and Joao Pessoa (Brazil, 2017).

The conference is for scientist worldwide insterested in luminescence research to share their latest findings on luminescence phenomena. materials, techniques, devices and applications.

Conference Topics
1. New luminescent materials and new methods
2. Nanocrystals, quantum dots and nano-structured materials
3. Spectroscopy of inorganic phosphors
4. Spectroscopy of macromolecules, biomolecules and single molecules
5. Luminescent materials for imaging and theranostics
6. Persistent luminescence and photo-stimulated luminescence
7. Excited state dynamics and ultrafast processes
8. Coherent, nonlinear and high-resolution spectroscopy, four-wave mixing
9. Theoretical modeling and computational methods for luminescence phenomena
10. Field-induced luminescence in organic and inorganic media, OLEDs and FEDs
11. Dynamics of photovoltaic and photocatalysis materials
12. Applications of luminescence (white LED, lasers, displays, sensors, etc.)
Conference Venue

The conference will be held at South Lake Hotel (3798 Nanhu Rd., Changchun, China). In the conference building, there is a big lecture hall (for more than 550 seats) as well as three small halls.

It will be possible to plan four parallel sessions of lectures at the same time.

ICL Prize

The ICL Prize was established in 1984 and is awarded during ICL conferences.

Traditionally, the Prize is awarded to single individuals for the studies of the luminescence properties of materials and their applications acknowledge by the International luninescence community.

The winner presents the talk at the closing session of the conference and receives a plaque citing his contribution to luminescence studies along with cash award (2000 USD). The Prize is sponsored by the Jounal of Luminescence published by Elsevier.

Guidelines for nominators:

Please sumbit a singlepage summary that describes the accomplishments of the candidate and why these accomplishments merit the ICL 2020 award. This summary will be used by the Prize Committee in making their selection. It would also be helpful if the candidate's vita could be supplied so that the Prize Committee is aware of the publications, patents, honors, awards and other information that you believe would be significant in making the selection. If a vita is not available, please provide as much information as you have.

Please send the nominations to Alexander Kaplyanskii (ICL Prize Committee chairman) before June 15th, 2021.
