Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to be part of the XLI Colloquium Spectroscopicum Internationale (CSIXLI) and the I Latin American Meeting on Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LAMLIBS) to be held from June 9 to 14, 2019, in Mexico City. All participants and exhibitors can attend both events with a single registration.

The CSI represents a historic forum among scientists for presentation/discussion of recent developments in all branches of spectroscopy. The Local Organizing Committee is preparing an exciting scientific program that can bring together scientists, students and industry specialists from different research fields related to spectroscopy. You can see all the topics of the conference in:

In addition, the CSI provides the opportunity to hold the first LAMLIBS, which seeks to bring together the largest possible number of groups from Latin America working on LIBS to promote the collaboration and strategic alliances to solve specific problems and challenges.

Mexico City is a place where modernity meets the pre-Hispanic and colonial roots of the Mexican people, making it an excellent destination for both academic and tourism purposes.
