Plasmonics, the field of study of surface plasmon excitations and their utilization at the nanoscale, has become a vibrant arena for interdisciplinary science. Nanoscale light-matter interactions in plasmonic materials and metamaterials are now known to drive longer-lived changes that may be observed, controlled, and harvested in the macroscopic environment. The Gordon Research Conference on Plasmonically-Powered Processes is dedicated to refining our understanding of the unique thermal, chemical, electronic, and mechanical processes that result from the energy transferred from photoexcited plasmonic nanomaterials to neighboring phases after plasmon decay. This week-long residential conference will bring together a diverse, international group of established and rising scientists whose expertise spans the optical, engineering, mathematical, materials, and biochemical sciences. The conference, which will take place at the new campus of the Hong Kong University of Technology, aims to bring together young and older researchers alike, and to identify new research directions, some of which might eventually lead to important ‘real-world’ applications. In the spirit of the Gordon Conferences, the meeting will provide significant opportunities for interactions between students, post-docs and professors, and ample time for in-depth discussion.
