The annual LIBS conference brings together the latest results and ideas demonstrating to LIBS fast-growing impact in science and technology. This gathering of researchers and users facilitates the exchange of information between fundamental research and applications, including invited presentations, topical lectures, permanent poster exhibitions, and social, informal discussions.
A thematic issues of Spectrochimica Acta Part Part B will be devoted to the conference papers, including the following presentations featuring the leading handheld LIBS produced by SciAps, the people who helped write the book on portable spectroscopy and spectrometry.
