Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 3rd International Conference “Biophotonics—Riga” to be held in Riga, the capital city of Latvia, is the biggest biophotonics event in the Baltic region, gathering the field experts from more than 10 European countries. Three main topics of the conference are (i) biomedical tissue imaging, (ii) optical clinical diagnostics and monitoring, and (iii) skin optics and spectroscopy. Advances in these fields have increasing importance in public healthcare involving optical noninvasive technologies and improving quality of life. Papers related to the conference theme are solicited, including theories, methodologies, and emerging applications. Contributions to theory and practice, including but not limited to the abovementioned areas, are invited.
