2022 IUVA Research Innovation Symposium


The International Ultraviolet Association is pleased to announce the 2022 IUVA Research Innovation Symposium. This will be an in-person conference taking place at University of Colorado (Boulder, CO, USA) from May 23-25, 2022.

Theme of the Symposium

UV radiation has been applied in engineering systems for roughly 100 years; today, UV-based systems provide critical functions in a wide range of applications. New and emerging discoveries related to photochemistry, photobiology, UV-based applications, and UV sources may provide opportunities to improve existing applications, and to expand into new applications. This symposium has been organized to provide opportunities to explore new and emerging aspects of UV radiation and its applications. The conference will be conducted as a single-track event to promote engagement in presentations. In addition, the schedule for the event has been designed to facilitate social interactions and informal discussion. The individual sessions have been organized around theme areas, ranging from common applications (e.g., disinfection and AOPs), to health care, biomedical applications, and new UV sources. Speakers with expertise in these areas have been invited to present new discoveries and information related to emerging applications. The list of invited speakers was developed to engage experts from a wide range of backgrounds, including speakers who represent areas of expertise that have not traditionally been represented by IUVA and its members.


Registration will be open soon. In addition to invited speakers, a call for abstracts will be issued for flash talks and poster presentations during the symposium. The symposium will have a limit on the number of attendees. Priority will be given to presenters. The symposium has a research focus and commercial advertisement will be excluded.
