The ACOVS conference series has historically covered a diverse range of research areas. Topics include but are by no means limited to: materials science, nanotechnology, art and archaeology, polymer science, pharmaceuticals, environmental science, forensic science, soil science, mineralogy, gemmology, remote sensing, medical diagnostics, disease mechanisms and treatments, dentistry and other life sciences. Any new applications or technique developments are also welcome.


The ASC series focuses more broadly on optical spectroscopy, particularly in Asia with topics around Ultrafast and Nonlinear Spectroscopy, Raman Spectroscopy and Plasmonics, Single Molecule and Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Infrared, THz and Microwave Spectroscopies, Imaging, Microscopy and other Spectroscopic Applications.
