Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the ISLS 2014 Organizing Committee and the International Scientific Committee, I cordially invite you to participate in the XVI International Symposium on Luminescence Spectrometry, which will be held in Rhodes Island, Greece, on September 24-27, 2014.
For the past 30 years ISLS has provided an excellent framework for the presentation of new concepts, recent developments, instruments, methods, systems, and applications covering all aspects of modern luminescence spectroscopy. Scientists from Universities, Research Institutes, State Organizations, and the Industry come together during this meeting to present and experience the current state of the art in luminescence spectroscopy. At the same time, the conference provides the ground for graduate and post graduate students to present their projects, discuss scientific collaborations and explore employment opportunities.
Situated in the Southeast Aegean in the Mediterranean Sea, at the crossroads of two continents, the island of Rhodes (Rhodos) is renowned for its rich history, distinct culture, breathtaking beauty and vibrant social life. Rhodos offers excellent facilities for international events.
