The joint international conference and exhibition on UV LED Technologies & Applications will be held on April 22-25, 2018, at the MELIÃ Hotel in Berlin, Germany. The conference will feature invited, oral, and poster presentation and is intended to provide a forum for discussions on the latest developments of deep UV LED technologies as well as a wide range of new and emerging applications.
The objective of the conference is to bring together experts from sciences and industry in the field of UV LED technologies and applications. As UV LEDs are gaining maturity they become more and more attractive for broad industrial use. One of the most challenging applications is their use in water treatment and disinfection in general. With this joint conference IUVA and the German consortium “Advanced UV for Life” intend to present the state of the art of UV LED technology and its application in industry and research. The focus of this conference are LEDs emitting in the deep UV, in particular advances in materials device technologies, as well as development of UV LED modules and systems. Opportunities and challenges with respect to applications in water treatment, advanced oxidation processes, air and surface disinfection will be discussed as well as emerging applications in the areas of life sciences, phototherapy, UV curing, sensing, and others.
Advanced UV for Life is a consortium of more than 40 German industrial and academic partners working together in the development and application of UV LEDs within the framework of the Twenty20 initiative funded by the German ministry of Education and Research. The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) is an international organization that aims to advance the sciences, engineering and applications of ultraviolet technologies to enhance the quality of life and protect the environment.
