The Euro-Mediterranean Symposium on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy will be held in Gijón (Spain) from November 29th to December 2nd.

We will be present there with the poster: «Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy and Nonlinear Optical Microscopy for Analysis of Historical Glasses.» Lecture given by Marina Martínez Weinbaum (IQFR-PTI-PAIS)

«This event is a four-day conference and includes plenary talks, delivered by internationally recognized speakers, and oral sessions, where invited and selected contributors present their most relevant results. Participants will be able to visit the permanent poster exhibition and to meet the respective authors in the poster defence session. Moreover, 11th EMSLIBS will provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers of analytical instrumentation, relevant sample preparation equipment, consumables and chemicals, for LIBS and other related spectroscopy techniques, to exhibit at the conference. Additional entertainment will also be assured with various social activities organized throughout the conference.

The 11th EMSLIBS programme will comprise several hot-topics of the LIBS community, with sessions focused on subjects such as fundamentals, nano-LIBS, imaging or hyphenated techniques.

The original date had to be delayed due to the unique circumstances that we’re experiencing, with the confidence that we will be able to enjoy a face-to-face congress by the end of 2021.»
