The 5th Aquaphotomics International Conference
The Way of Water & Light, The Path of Life –


2024/05/09: AIC5 will start at May 18, 2025

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We hope this message finds you well. We have an important update regarding our scheduled conference.

This year marks a significant milestone as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the announcement of Aquaphotomics. In honor of this occasion, we are thrilled to announce that the 5th Aquaphotomics International Conference has been rescheduled to May 2025 to align with these celebrations.

The open lecture and the Aquaphotomics school are set for May 18th, followed by the Aquaphotomics International Conference at Kobe University on the 19th and 20th. May 21st will serve as a travel day, with a study tour scheduled for the 22nd. This strategic rescheduling aligns our event with the much-anticipated EXPO OSAKA 2025, providing a unique and comprehensive experience in Japan.

Aquaphotomics will be participating in the EXPO OSAKA 2025 exhibition in various ways, and we would like to offer a unique opportunity to our delegates to immerse themselves in a world-class cultural and technological expo, in addition to attending the conference. Such coordination will also allow international participants to make the most of their stay in Japan, minimizing travel constraints and maximizing cultural and professional enrichment.

We will continue to share updates through our website and direct communications. Please stay tuned for more information on the program, keynote speakers, and special events.

This decision opens up new avenues for collaboration, learning, and exploration at both our conference and EXPO OSAKA 2025. I would be grateful for your understanding and support on this matter.

Warmest regards,
Roumiana Tsenkova
President and Founder of Aquaphotomics International Society
