The goal of this conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for state-of-the-art methods and instrumentation related to the new research area of plasmonics and related nanosystems and their applications in biology and medicine. Plasmonics refers to the investigation, development and applications of enhanced electromagnetic properties of metallic nanostructures. The term plasmonics is derived from plasmons, which are the quanta associated with longitudinal waves propagating in matter through the collective motion of large numbers of electrons. Incident light irradiating these surfaces excites conduction electrons in the metal, and induces excitation of surface plasmons leading to enormous electromagnetic enhancement.

A forum that integrates interdisciplinary research and development is critically needed for scientists, engineers, and clinical providers to present the most recent advances in instrumentation and methods as well as biomedical applications in the new field of plasmonics in biology and medicine.

The focus is on the following topics related to plasmonics: ;
