Invitation letter from the ESP President Evelyne Sage

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ESP Executive Committee and the Congress Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to attend the 15th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology, which will be held in Liège (Belgium), from September 2 to September 6, 2013.

ESP Congresses constitute an important forum for dissemination of advanced knowledge and technological development in most photobiological fields of research, for scientific discussions and exchange of new ideas and for establishing new collaborations for your future research. Helped by the exciting proposals by the ESP Scientific Advisory Board, we have aimed to put together a scientific program of sessions on a wide range of topics which cover major streams of photobiological sciences. This includes highly relevant, timely, cutting edge symposia. Beside plenary lectures and symposia, we have introduced keynote lectures on emerging topics. We have also aimed to favour active contribution of young scientists in the program. Nowadays time and money are precious items, ESP2013 congress is slightly shorter than the previous versions (4 full days instead of 4.5 days).

In addition to providing an exciting venue for scientific exchange and social interaction with your colleague photobiologists, Liège is a historical European city (roman vestiges) and a great place to visit. It is centrally located in Europe and easily reached by plane, trains (TGV) and by car. Liège offers an excellent venue for the ESP Congress, at the Palais des Congrès situated along the river La Meuse. Lively surrounding districts, cultural and architectural heritage, and wooded hills make Liège a very charming city.

Your qualified and stimulating participation is crucial and we are looking forward to welcome you in Liège.

Evelyne Sage
ESP President
