Billed as a Raman homecoming of sorts, the 23d International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS) will be held in Bangalore on 12 to 17 August 2012. The meeting will convene at the Indian Institute of Science, which is the original home of Sir C.V. Raman, where many of Raman’s spectroscopic studies were carried out. The ICORS conference was last held in Bangalore in 1978.
Dozens of international experts have been invited to present papers. The use of Raman spectroscopy in nanotechnology and biomedical applications will be explored.
Early-bird registration is available until 30 April.Norbert Sparrow
