Recently, there has been a rapid and significant progress in the field of UV and higher energy photonics (UV to EUV) due to the availability of new UV and high energy light sources. Nano-materials such as nucleotides and proteins known as the essential biomolecules in living cells and semiconducting or plasmonic materials used in advanced nano-devices are analyzed and detected, imaged, and/or manipulated with use of UV and higher energy photons. Starting from the material growth related aspects, this conference includes theories and novel concepts on UV and higher energy photonics. It also includes experiments and developments of methods and instruments, which are used as devices for applications in catalysis, nano-lithography, nano-imaging, disinfection, analytical sensing but also in nano-photonics, bio-medical photonics, materials sciences and green and environmental sciences.

The chairs of the conference proudly announce that the Young-Scientist award will be given to two outstanding presentations respectively in oral and poster sessions. Successful candidates must convey significant scientific content with a demonstrated excellent style of presentation including questions and discussions. In addition, from 2020, potentially four contributed papers are promoted to invited contribution.
