OPTIONAL EXTENDED ABSTRACTS

Submissions to this conference may include the following to improve the chance for acceptance:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program) (REQUIRED)
  • 250-word text abstract (for abstract digest) (REQUIRED)
  • 2-page extended abstract (for committee review only) (OPTIONAL). In order to be nominated for the award, an extended abstract must be submitted. We are expecting to get 2-page extended abstract for committee review only. The extended abstract must be submitted as a separate document limited to two pages, including tables and figures.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee. Include author names and affiliations; text; any figures, tables, or images; and sufficient data to permit committee review. Extended abstracts will be used only for the purpose of peer review for Prizmatix young investigator awards, and will not be published.


Novel applications and/or solutions to technological problems involving i) the use of nanostructures, nanoparticles, metamaterials and nanostructured materials for biological applications; ii) photonic studies of nanoscale interactions in biology and medicine; and iii) the use of biological materials/templates for the development of nanostructured nanophotonic imaging and sensing devices are significant foci of both industrial and academic research. These applications and solutions are inherently interdisciplinary by nature and thus require a seamless transfer of knowledge between physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering.

Recent integrative research efforts have included, for example, (a) nanotechnology (fabrication and application) as a tool in developing new, and improving existing, optical imaging techniques for real-time sub-wavelength imaging of cellular processes, (b) developing the next generation of nano-biosensors for improving biological / chemical sensing applications, (c) using nanoparticles / nanostructures for optical engineering of methodologies for targeting and treatment of disease, (d) applying computer and information technologies in the development of new models and data analysis for understanding cellular mechanisms, (e) developing new photonic devices and systems that are hybrids of traditional polymeric and semiconductor materials with biological materials; (f) very large scale and/or very sensitive detection down to single molecule level for drug discovery and diagnostics applications, such as nanoarrays; and (g) quantum computing and machine learning to biomedical applications.

The objective of this conference is to bring together scientists and researchers interested in the latest advances in the advancement of materials and methods that combine nanophotonics with biology. More specifically, this conference is to discuss the development of processing, characterization, and simulation of bioinspired and bioderived nanophotonic structures, metamaterials for sub-wavelength imaging, nanoscale interactions in biological systems, functionalized nanoparticles for biological applications and the use of nanostructures / nanoparticles for high throughput analysis (nanoarrays).

The conference will focus on four streams of contributions:
