Welcome message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the International Advisory Board, we welcome you to OP 2019 to be held in Vilnius City, Lithuania, 7-12 July 2019.

The 13th International Conference on Optical Probes of Organic and Hybrid Optoelectronic Materials and Applications 2019 is the premier international meeting bringing together scientists and engineers from around the world interested in the field of photophysics of organic and hybrid semiconductors. The primary goal of OP 2019 is to present state-of-the-art research, recent achievements and global trends in our understanding of excited state phenomena and photophysical processes, the development of novel spectroscopic techniques, and their applications to optoelectronic devices and biology. Special emphasis is placed on generality of the phenomena, rather than the specifics of the system or optical measurement.

Along with the stimulating program of scientific presentations and discussions, we have organized social events to allow you to experience Vilnius Old Town.

We hope that you will join us in OP 2019 and look forward to seeing you in Vilnius.

Conference Chair
Saulius Juršėnas, Vilnius University

Welcome to Lithuania and Vilnius!

"Vilnius has many names, many faces and many mysteries. Seeming to be in the remote corner of Europe, it is, in fact, located less than 20 kilometres from the geographical centre of Europe. And, indeed, Vilnius is like a miniature Europe in one town and you can find here everything – from Italian Baroque to Russian Orthodox churches, from German Gothic to Austrian Rococo architecture and traces of the Jewish past. It is a city, where one street can tell you a thousand stories". 
Kristina Sabaliauskaitė, Novelist and art historian, laureate of Vilnius’ Saint Christopher’s Award.
