15th International Conference on Luminescence and Electron Spin Resonance Dating

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 15th International Conference on Luminescence and Electron Spin Resonance Dating (LED2017) to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, in September 2017. The LED series of meetings are held every three years and provide a forum for discussion of new developments on stimulated luminescence and its applications to materials and dating. The conference in Cape Town will be hosted by Rhodes University and follows recent LED conferences held in Canada (2014), Poland (2011) and China (2008).

As is customary with LED gatherings, the program for the 2017 meeting will mainly consist of plenary sessions on basic physical processes, materials' characteristics, instrumentation, methodologies and applications with special emphasis on retrospective dosimetry. The meeting will be held at The Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel in Cape Town. We look forward to seeing you in 2017.
