Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is related to the International Conference on Laser Applications in Life Sciences (LALS 2014; see http://lals2014.ilm-ulm.de), which follows a series of biannual conferences and which will take place in the period from June 29th to July 2nd 2014 in Ulm/Neu-Ulm (Germany). In agreement with the main topics of the conference, this issue is focused on the fields of Biomedical Imaging, Laser Spectroscopy, Laser-Tissue Interactions, Light Microscopy, Nano-Biophotonics, Novel Optical Devices, and Clinical Laser Applications. All speakers presenting a paper at LALS 2014 are invited to submit a manuscript for publication. Regular submissions are also welcomed in this Special Issue.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
