HISTORY AND TRADITION

 

The 18th Czech-Slovak Spectroscopic Conference (18th CSSC) is a proceeding based on a long-term scientific cooperation between Ioannes Marcus Marci Spectroscopic Society and The Slovak Spectroscopic Society. The meetings organized by the former Czechoslovak spectroscopic society (1949 – 1993) in the past and the continuation in the tradition of the national Slovak and Czech spectroscopic conferences now, since 2008, exist as a joint event. 

The Czech spectroscopic conference was repeated every four years, while the Slovak spectroscopic conference took place as a biennial. Joint scientific meetings are now held every two years alternately in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The order may change if this conference is combined with the European Symposium on Analytical Spectrometry (ESAS). To make the tradition of the original separate national conferences clear, the conferences held in the Czech Republic retain their original serial numbering, and the same is true of the conferences held in Slovakia. To recall history, it is possible to take a look at some of the conferences of the past twenty years.
