School scope

1st Conference and Spring School

on Properties, Design and Applications of Upconverting Nanomaterials

23rd-27th May 2016, Wroclaw, Poland





Apart from conventional scientific conference, we are going to organize the first ever school, dedicated purely to upconverting materials. The lectures will be provided by distinguished scientists and schoolars and will cover broad range of scientific advancements in the field.


In principle, the Conference and the school are separate events, but the keynote and invited speakers of the UPCON'16 Concference, will be lecturers to the students during the UPCON'16 Spring School.


The UPCON2016 school is dedicated mostly for students, but all scientists are equally welcome. Both events require appropraite registration and uploading separate abstracts. To give the students the opportunity to show scientific work and present their more general interests, we require abstracts for both, conference and school, respectively. These will be printed individually in the Conference/School book of abstract. The scientific poster session (during the conference) and more general short scientific/general presentation (2 slides and 5 minutes maximum) (during school), shall stimulate the interaction and networking between students and participants. Such short oral presentations during the school, shall also be a good way to practice public speaking and communicating scientific work to the public.
