Dear THz-Bio Workshop participants,

As you may have already learned from the Workshop website, after a careful discussion within the LOC and after consulting the Erice School, we have finally decided the THz-Bio Workshop will take place exclusively online.

To allow for the widest participation in the workshop, and in order not to create too much inconvenience with time slots allocated for the various presentations, the Workshop will be articulated in five days,

from Monday, April 19 to Friday April 23, 2021.

Please find enclosed a provisional revised program that reflects these changes.

We kindly ask you to reply to this message to let us know whether you are still available to attend the Workshop and present your contribution.

If you are scheduled as a presenting author, please confirm the title of your contribution and let us know if you wish to maintain the same abstract or submit a new one.

In the current context, an effort has been made to hold the Workshop in the frame of the activities of the Erice International School of Bioelectromagnetism, and a symbolic registration fee has been established for presenting authors at the THz-Bio Workshop.

Details of registration fees are as follows:

Presenter regular:        100 Euro

Presenter student:        50 Euro

Company/Sponsor       250 Euro

Attendee (not presenting)        Free

Registration period:  January 31 to April 15, 2021

Looking forward to your participation, 

With best wishes

9th International THz-Bio Workshop

April 30 - May 3, 2020

Erice, Sicily, Italy

The millimeter wave and terahertz regions are frontier areas for research in physics, chemistry, materials science, biophysics, biology, and medicine. The interest in novel imaging, sensing and spectroscopy in the above communities has grown steadily during the past twenty years, as new instrumentation, as well as new techniques and new applications have become available.

In 2010 a workshop series entitled "International THz-Bio Workshop" started in Korea with the support of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. In 2016 its international organizing committee was encouraged to consider a rotation of this workshop series between different geographical areas. It was then decided to host the THz-Bio Workshop 2017 at ENEA-Frascati in Italy. After the success of this event ad a search of future possible sites, it has recently been decided to hold the 9th International THz-Bio Workshop at the world known “Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture” in Erice, Sicily, in the frame of the activities of the Erice International School of Bioelectromagnetism (http://www.eisbem.eu/) from April 30 to May 3, 2020.

The aim of the "THz-Bio Workshop" is to bring together scientists from different communities to discuss a broad range of scientific issues in the Terahertz and adjacent parts of the Infrared and Microwave spectral regions. Topics of the Workshop include, but are not limited to: Spectroscopic measurements on biological systems of increasing complexity, mechanisms of interaction and effects induced by the electromagnetic field, safety issues, technological developments of terahertz active & passive instrumentations and THz-Bio sensing & imaging. The programme of the Workshop will consist of invited and contributed papers, posters and a technical exhibit. Selected papers presented at the Workshop will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Infrared, Millimeter and THz Waves.


We cordially invite you to attend the “9th International THz-Bio Workshop”.

We encourage you to express you interest in participating as soon as possible, since the seat availability will be limited to 100. Detailed info about registration, abstract submission, food and lodging in Erice, as well as and on how to reach the Ettore Majorana Center will be distributed in due time.

Looking forward to "meeting" you in 2021!
