Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL) is pleased to host the X Iberian Spectroscopy Conference (X CIE) and the XXVI National Spectroscopy Meeting (RNE), from 9 to 11 July 2018 in Lisboa (Portugal) and to invite you to participate. This joint conference will be organized by SPQ (Sociedade Portuguesa de Química) in collaboration with SEQA (Sociedad Española de Química Analítica), SEDOPTICA (Comité de Espectroscopia de la Sociedad Española de Óptica)and SEA (Sociedad de Espectroscopia Aplicada). Following the tradition from preceding meetings, a broad range of topics within the field of Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy, including applications, is proposed, in order to attract high quality scientific presentations from researchers working in the field of spectroscopy and to stimulate the participation of young researchers and students.

The Xth edition of Iberian Spectroscopy Conference jointly with the XXVIth National Spectroscopy Meeting will follow the standards set up in the previous editions, contributing to spread the latest developments in the relevant fields comprised in the event topics. The meeting will provide a wide forum for the exchange of ideas on recent advances in research and development in the spectroscopy field, involving people from academia, research and industry.
