It is our great honor and pleasure to cordially invite you to the 5th International Taiwan Symposium on Raman Spectroscopy (TISRS 2017) and Taiwan Association of Raman Spectroscopy (TARS) Summer Camp, to be held in National Chiayi University, Chiayi, Taiwan from 27-30 June 2017. The symposium is organized under the auspices of the Taiwan Association of Raman Spectroscopy (TARS) and the Minster of Science and Technology (MOST). TISRS aims to present and discuss recent developments and applications of Raman spectroscopy such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS), imaging methods, and their applications to molecular, bio, and nano sciences. This symposium is held every year as regular meetings of TARS in the hope that it will become a platform for both local and international scientists in the relevant fields to share the latest results of their forefront research. Previous TISRS and TARS summer camp were held in 2016 in Taipei, in 2015 in Nantou, in 2014 in Hua-Lien, and in 2013 in Hsinchu (Taiwan). With the event in 2017, we wish to again bring you a stage for the presentation and discussion of new developments and important applications on Raman-related research.
Many of the leading scientists in the field have agreed to give presentations at this symposium which will be full of scientific highlights and also allow you to bring attention to your work in the form of contributed oral and poster presentations. As earlier meetings, the symposium will create a spirit of intensive discussions and rewarding personal encounters. The particular atmosphere of the cozy city of Chiayi, stretching across by the Tropic of Cancer, where the symposium and summer camp venue is located will add its part to make this event unforgettable. The Organizing Committees of this symposium and we look forward to seeing you in Chiayi.
