Kyiv – Institute of Physics NASU May 17-18, 2018

Dear Participants, dear Speakers, dear Invited Speakers,

It was a pleasure to meet you all in Kyiv at the First International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy! We thank you so much for your scientific results presented during the workshop and for your contribution to the development of this important field of science. It was a great honor and pleasure for us to be the host of this meeting, and we hope that you'd found the presentations interesting, and the discussions stimulating and fruitful.

The results of the First International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy (1st IWRS) can be found on the website of the Institute of Physics

We hope to see you at the next events: IWRS in two years and NANOBIOPHYSICS conference (October 2-5, 2019)!

Outcomes of the 1st International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy

The 1st International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy was held on May 17-18, 2018, in the city of Kyiv, Ukraine. The meeting was organized by the Institute of Physics and the Institute for Semiconductor Physics of NAS of Ukraine under the support from the H2020-MSCA-RISE-2015 690853 — assymcurv and NATO SPS 985291 project.

The workshop was dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the discovery of Raman scattering - inelastic light scattering by molecules (C. Raman, 1928) and crystals (G. Landsberg and L. Mandelstam, 1928).

The workshop main idea was to present recent progress and advances in the field of Raman spectroscopy and its applications to solid state physics, nanophysics and technology, earth and life sciences, medicine and biology in Ukraine and worldwide. The meeting aimed to exchange new ideas, to establish close contacts and live communication between scientists from various scientific centers working in this field.

The workshop topics covered a wide range of issues of the Raman spectroscopy of crystals, disordered matter, organic and inorganic nanostructures, as well as biomedical objects. The scientific program of the workshop included 5 invited and 11 plenary lectures as well as 7 poster contributions. The workshop was hosted by the Institute of Physics NAS of Ukraine and it was attended by about 50 participants from Ukraine, as well as Poland (3 participants), Italy (1 participant), and Denmark (2 participants) who actively work in the subject area of the workshop. The presentation sessions and informal discussions during the 1st International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy generated new ideas for scientific cooperation and new research projects in the different branches of Raman spectroscopy and their applications in physics, nanotechnology, medicine, biology and industry.

Upon the suggestion of the participants of the 1st International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy is was decided to continue these meetings as a regular scientific forum to be held biannually and organized by the above two institutes in rotation.

The Organizers of the International Workshop on Raman Spectroscopy are sure that this important scientific event will promote integration of Ukrainian science into European space. The holding of this event will be an essential support for Ukrainian science and will ensure strengthening of international scientific cooperation between Ukraine and other countries.

The organizers are grateful for financial support from the H2020-MSCA-RISE-2015 690853 — assymcurv and NATO SPS 985291 project.
