The Institute of Physics of the Kazimierz Wielki University and Oncology Center - prof Łukaszczyk Memorial Hospital, both in Bydgoszcz, Poland, cordially invite you to participate in the 11th European Conference on Luminescent Detectors and Transformers of Ionizing Radiation, which will be held in Bydgoszcz, September 12-17, 2021.

LUMDETR 2021 will continue the tradition established by the previous meetings in Latvia (Riga, 1991), Estonia (Tallin, 1994), Poland (Ustron, 1997), Latvia (Riga, 2000), Czech Republic (Prague, 2003), Ukraine (Lviv, 2006), Poland (Krakow, 2009), Germany (Halle, 2012), Estonia (Tartu, 2015) and Czech Republic (Prague, 2018).

This conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of the latest developments in basic and applied research in the field of radioluminescence, the processes of energy transfer and storage in solids, the physics and chemistry of luminescent phosphor and scintillation materials, and related with them applications.

Invited lectures will be given by leading scientists to introduce the main topics of the conference. Both oral and poster presentations will create the main body of the conference program. Delivered manuscripts, after review process, will be published the journal Optical Materials (Elsevier Publ. House).
