On behalf of the ESP Executive Committee and the Congress Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to attend the 19th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology that will take place in the virtual space from August 30 to September 3, 2021. Originally planned to happen at the University of Salzburg, Austria, the pandemic has forced us to go virtual. However, participants will still be able not only to enjoy a comprehensive and exciting scientific program but also the atmosphere of Salzburg, as the opening event will be broadcasted from the ceremonial state rooms of the Salzburg Residence Palace, including classical music.
As with past ESP congresses, we are sure that this meeting will again provide a unique international forum for the dissemination of new research and technological development in the science of Photobiology. Attendees will find excellent opportunities for productive scientific discussions, exchange of new ideas and establishing new collaborations.
In addition to a wealth of parallel symposia covering a full range of themes in the Photobiological Sciences, we will have keynote and plenary lectures in exciting developing areas of photobiology, including a talk by the 2021 Young Investigator Awardee. There will be ample opportunity to contribute oral presentations, participate in poster sessions, and attend presentations from industrial participants.
We sincerely thank our sponsors to whom this invitation is warmly extended. Full recognition of their contributions will be made at the meeting as well as in Congress literature and on our website.
