9th International Workshop on Photoluminescence in Rare Earths (PRE'22): Photonic Materials and Devices

PRE’22-Mexico. 17-18 August 2022 | Cancun, Mexico

PRE’22-Poland. 11-15 September 2022 | Szczawnica, Poland

As concerns still exist about the spread of the corona virus globally, we well understand that this situation is worrying everyone and that many colleagues are scared to travel. We, as PRE’22 organizers, are deeply concerned with the health and well-being of the participants.
On the other hand, one of the strengths of PRE Workshops has always been the direct interaction of attendees; thus, after shifting PRE’21 to 2022, we are now attempting to find a solution that could leave open the possibility to participate in-person for as many colleagues as possible.

Trying to reduce the need of long distance (transcontinental) flights for prospective participants, we have considered the feasibility of splitting PRE’22 into two events, one in Cancun, Mexico, as already planned for the canceled PRE’21, and one in Europe. Our Asian colleagues could then decide what location would be more convenient for them.

As a first move into this direction, we gladly agreed with the Materials Research Society, USA, and the Sociedad Mexicana de Materiales (SMMater) to organize a Symposium in the frame of the XXX International Materials Research Congress (IMRC), which will be held in Cancun, Mexico, in the week 15 to 19 August.

Our Symposium (C6), entitled Photoluminescence in rare earth doped materials (PRE’22-Mexico), will likely be held on 17-18 August 2022.

The second event in 2022, namely the European one, will be in Poland, in September, organized in conjunction with ICMS 2022, the biennial International Conference on Molecular Spectroscopy.
The Symposium on <Photoluminescence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials> (PRE’22-Poland) will be held during ICMS 2022 on 11-15 September 2022 in Szczawnica (100 km from Krakow).

The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared 2022 the International Year of Glass (IYoG). Thus, PRE’22 will also be one of the scientific events to celebrate IYoG !
