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.

Previous conferences took place at Snowbird (1992), Salt Lake City (1994), San-Diego (1997), Salt Lake City (2000), Venice (2003), Bangalore (2005), Turku (2007), Beijing (2009), Santa Fe (2011), Durham UK (2013), Hong Kong (2015) and Québec (2017).

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

We are grateful to all our sponsors outlined in this program as well as to presenters.

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

Saulius Juršėnas, Vilnius University

About Vilnius & Lithuania

About Vilnius & Lithuania

Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania. It is also the largest Lithuanian city. With a population of over 500 000, Vilnius is the second biggest city of the Baltic states, after Riga. The earliest settlements in the area of present day Vilnius appears to be of mesolithic origin. Numerous archaeological findings prove that the area has been inhabited by peoples of various cultures since the early Middle Ages. Initially a Baltic settlement, later it was also inhabited by Slavs, Jews and Germans.
