BRICS Workshop on Biophotonics - 2021 will be held online, on 27-29, Sept. 2021, and is intended to bring together scientists, engineers and clinical researchers from the BRICS countries of various fields of science involved in the application of optics, photonics and imaging technologies to solve urgent problems of biology and medicine. The scope of this Forum ranges from basic research to instrumentation, preclinical and clinical research, mainly in those areas where researchers from the BRICS countries are world leaders. The topics are extensive and will cover (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Optical Interactions in Tissue and Cells
  • Biomedical Spectroscopy, Microscopy and Imaging
  • Advanced Optical Techniques for Clinical Medicine
  • Multimodal Biomedical Imaging
  • Nano/Biophotonics
  • Photonic Therapeutics, Diagnostics and Instrumentations
  • Tissue Optical Clearing and Drug Delivery
  • Antimicrobial and Antivirus Phototherapies


Official language of the meeting is English.


Conference papers will be published as:

  • Proceedings of BRICS Workshop on Biophotonics - 2021
  • SPIE Proceedings (3 volumes)
  • Journal of Biomedical Photonics & Engineering
  • Quantum Electronics (Russian/English)
  • Optics and Spectroscopy (Russian/English)
  • Nonlinear Applied Physics (Russian/English)
  • Journal of Biomedical Optics
  • Optical Engineering
  • MDPI Materials
  • MDPI Photonics


All papers will be subjected to the normal refereeing process for the journals. For special issue of Quantum Electronics manuscripts should be submitted not later than September 15, 2021; for SPIE Proceedings, Optics and Spectroscopy, Proceedings “Optical Physics and Biophotonics” – not later than November 30, 2021. All participants are also invited to submit papers to the following special issues of MDPI Journals:
