After the past successful editions in Parma (Italy), Taipei (Taiwan) and Firenze (Italy), each attended by more than 150 delegates, we are proud of announcing the 4th appointment of the series, the 2019 International Conference on Biophotonics (ICB2019). The event has established as a high-level meeting in the area of photonics techniques for medicine, life science, agriculture, environmental science and related areas of application. Aim of the Conference is to bring together researchers worldwide to networking and exchanging their research developments in a stimulating multidisciplinary forum. As usual, the program will feature invited lectures, as well as oral and poster sessions.

Submissions: Perspective Author shall submit electronically to the conference website
- a 35-word abstract and
- a 2-pages paper, written on the conference template, and
- indicate the preference for oral/poster presentation
by the deadline of June 15, 2019. Authors will be informed about the acceptance by July 15, 2019.

Papers (oral and poster) accepted and presented at the Conference will be published on IEEE Xplore.
Registration Fees: Regular NT$ 10,000 (before August 15), NT$ 12,000 after August 16; Members of Sponsoring Institutions: NT$ 8,000 (10,000 after June 30); Students (document required) NT$5,000 (6,000 after June 30).
