The 13th International Conference on Optics of Excitons in Confined Systems (OECS13) will take place in Rome (Italy) from the 9th to 13th of September 2013.
The OECS 13 continues a series of conferences that started in 1987 in Rome (Italy). Afterwards the conference was held at Naxos (Sicily, Italy, 1991), Montpellier (France, 1993), Cortona (Italy, 1995), Göttingen (Germany, 1997), Ascona (Switzerland, 1999), Montpellier (France, 2001), Lecce (Italy, 2003), Southampton (UK, 2005), Patti (Sicily, Italy, 2007), Madrid (Spain, 2009), and Paris (France, 2011).
It is addressed to scientists who lead fundamental and applied research on the optical properties of excitons in novel condensed-matter mesostructures. The 2013 meeting will bring together in Rome many world leading actors in this domain, with the aim of stimulating the exchange of ideas, promoting international cooperation, and coordinating research on the newest exciton related issues, such as quantum information science and exciton quantum collective phenomena in organic and inorganic materials.
