Welcome Message  

The Asian Spectroscopy Conference (ASC) has a relatively long history. It was initiated by Asian Raman spectroscopists and was held in odd numbered years while the International Conference on Raman spectroscopy was held in the even numbered years.

The 1st ASC, 2007, India (Chair: Siva Umapathy)

The 2nd ASC, 2009, S. Korea (Chair: Seong-Keun Kim)

The 3rd ASC, 2011, China (Chair: Zhong-Qun Tian)

The 4th ASC, 2013, Singapore (Chair: Soo-Ying Lee)

The 5th ASC, 2015, Australia (Chair: Don McNaughton)

The 6th ASC, 2017, Taiwan (Chair: I-Chia Chen)

The 7th ASC, 2019, Hong Kong (Chair: David Phillips) – postponed to 2023

The 8th ASC, 2021, Japan (Chair: Tahei Tahara)

The scope of the ASC, however, went beyond Raman spectroscopy, and covered all forms of molecular spectroscopy dealing with rotational, vibrational and electronic transitions, and probing of chemical reactions. Today, it covers linear and nonlinear spectroscopies, time-resolved pump-probe spectroscopies, ultrafast spectroscopies, femtochemistry, surface-enhanced and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy and microscopy, single-molecule spectroscopy, super-resolution microscopy, etc.

Due to the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic, the 7th ASC 2019, Hong Kong (Chair: David Phillips) could not be held as a face-to-face meeting, and it has been proposed to postpone it to be the 9th ASC, 2023, Hong Kong (Chair: David Phillips).

To fill the vacuum between the 6th and the 8th ASC, the International Steering Committee has kindly consented to holding the 7th ASC 2020, through Singapore (Chair: Soo-Ying Lee; Co-Chair: Edwin Yeow), as an online conference via Zoom. It will be held on 8 - 10 December 2020, and will be organised by the Institute of Advanced Studies, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Participation in the 7th ASC, 2020, Singapore, 8-10 December 2020, online conference will be free of charge. However, registration is mandatory for the Zoom connection.

We look forward to your strong support for ASC 2020!

Thank you.

Prof Edwin YEOW
Conference Chair

Prof LEE Soo Ying
Conference Co-Chair
