About

The 7th International Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy and Optical Materials (IWASOM) starts on Sunday, July 10, 2022, and finishes on Friday, July 15, 2022. The Workshop will be held at the University of Gdańsk in Gdańsk-Oliwa. IWASOM will provide an international forum for exchanging information on advanced spectral methods, optical devices, physics and chemistry of novel optical materials and related applications. The scientific program will consist of key lectures (30 min), invited lectures (30 min), oral (15 min) and poster presentations.

The IWASOM Conference will continue the tradition established by the previous six meetings organized at the University of Gdańsk.

 
The initiator and chairman of the conference was professor Marek Grinberg. He had dedicated his scientific career to the investigation of optical materials activated with transition metals and lanthanides. He was best known for employing in his research a rare experimental technique – high-pressure spectroscopy. His sharp mind and extraordinary personality made him much admired among fellow scientists.

Prof. Marek Grinberg passed away on June 27, 2020. We would like to honor and dedicate the 7th IWASOM conference to him.

Venue & Travel

The 7th International Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy and Optical Materials (IWASOM) starts on Sunday, 10 July 2022, and finishes on Friday, 15 July 2022. The Workshop will be held at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Gdańsk. The Faculty is situated in the Campus of the University of Gdańsk in Gdańsk Przymorze (see the map of campus).

Gdańsk is the Polish maritime capital with the population nearing half a million. It is a large centre of economic life, science, culture, and a popular tourist destination. Lying on the Bay of Gdańsk and the southern cost of the Baltic Sea the city is a thousand years old. With its Hanseatic tradition, it has for ages played a major role in the commercial relationships between Northern and Western Europe on the one hand, and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe on the other hand. Today, Gdańsk is the capital of the Pomeranian province and an important administration centre.

For more information, see an excellent web page of Gdańsk and tourism information (see For Tourists).

The conference place can be easily reached by any means of transportation.

Polish currency is Polish złoty (PLN or zł). The exchange rate of złoty to other currencies is variable. So we recommend to check the rate before you visit Poland. You can check current rate here.

Currency exchange: If you wish to exchange euro (or other currency) into PLN you have at your disposal exchange desks at border crossings, airports, railway stations, travel offices, hotels and special exchange counters called “kantor”. Traveler’s check can be exchanged at every bank, but not at private exchange counters. No commission fee is charged at kantors. Cash machines are very common.There are many banks in Poland.
