A few days ago, we have had the official news that the current face-to face academic activities of UIMP in Santander during this summer have been cancelled. This decision is consequence of the current corona-virus pandemic that are suffering a wide number of countries world-wide and, in particular, Spain.

As the International School on Light Sciences and Technologies (ISLIST) has been conceived to be a face to face worldwide top International forum on Light Sciences and Technologies, in which only the top world-renowned professors, researchers and professionals are being invited to participate, and taking into account the current pandemic situation, we have decided to postpone one year the fifth ISLIST edition.

Health safety and security of all ISLIST participant is our primary aim. The health concerns consequence of the COVID-19 disease in addition to the high number of uncertainties that we have for the next months, have pushed us to postpone the meeting one year. We have also considered the decisions already taken by many relevant world-wide meetings.

So, the fifth edition of ISLIST with the main core on Light in Energy and Advanced Manufacturing, already programmed, is now scheduled for June 21-27, 2021.

 
This school is envisioned to be a worldwide top International forum (every fourth week of June) on Light Sciences and Technologies in the framework of a “special top university” that is recognized as the “university of universities” and in a privileged environment “the Royal Magdalena Palace” in Santander, Cantabria, Spain. Each edition of this international school will have an intensification or main core in a specific application area and additional current hot topics. Light in Energy and Advanced Manufacturing will be the core of 2021 edition.

ISLIST has been conceived as a great opportunity to review, actualize and improve the knowledge of scientists, professionals and technicians; to contribute to the education and to enhance the motivation of PhD students; to offer an ideal frame for networking and also to contribute to the education of the citizens. It is also a great opportunity to ensure that policymakers, entrepreneurs, and other key “actors” will be aware of the problem-solving potential of Photonics.
