Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you to Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal), for the 3rd International Caparica Conference on Chromogenic and Emissive Materials (3rd IC3EM-2018).

The Conference will take place in Costa de Caparica the 3rd to 6th September 2018 .

We cordially encourage you to attend and contribute to one of the major events in 2018 on the Dyes and Fluorescence field.

We are confident that you will appreciate the breadth and quality of the scientific program and the city of Caparica, and look forward to seeing you in 2018 in Portugal.

And last, but not least, we have some of the best in the arena:
