Welcome !


Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the European Society for Photobiology (ESP) and the Local and Scientific Organizing Committees we cordially invite you to participate in the 20th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology, which will be based in Lyon (France) and held in Institut National des Sciences Appliquées from August 27-31, 2023. The 20th edition of ESP will return to the country where the very first photobiology meeting occurred to celebrate this important landmark. As with past ESP congresses, even in virtual mode (19th ESP 2021), we are sure that this meeting will provide a unique international forum for the dissemination of new research, technological development and applications in the photobiological sciences.


With the help of the ESP Scientific Advisory Board, a scientific program of sessions is being created on a wide range of topics covering the main streams of photobiology sciences. These topics will be covered by the leading worldwide experts in more than 30 parallel symposia, interactive poster sessions, as well keynote and plenary lectures on exciting developing areas, including talk(s) by the 2023 ESP Young Investigator Awardee(s). The ESP is committed to also provide a fellowship scheme to encourage the active participation of young scientists to the Congress.


This meeting is an awesome forum where academia and industry attendees will find excellent opportunities for productive scientific discussion, exchange of new ideas and fruitful collaborations.


We will do our best to make the 20th ESP Congress in Lyon a remarkable meeting.


Amparo FaustinoEuropean Society for Photobiology, President
