A BRIEF HISTORY OF TURCMOS
The idea of TURCMOS (International Turkish Congress on Molecular Spectroscopy) was put forward by Ozan Unsalan during the Polish Congress on Molecular Spectroscopy (POLCMOS) 2011 which was held in Poland. Then, first TURCMOS was held in Istanbul at Harbiye Military Museum Congress Hall between 15-20 September 2013 with around 250 participants. Selected papers of 1st TURCMOS were published in Spectrochimica Acta A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy.
2nd TURCMOS was organized between 13-18 September 2015 in Akdeniz University in Antalya with around 100 participants. No special issue was published.
3rd TURCMOS was organized between 26-29 August 2017 in Bodrum, with the support of Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University with around 250 participants. Selected papers of 3rd TURCMOS were published in Journal of Molecular Structure.
Many spectroscopy companies have been supporters of TURCMOS so far such as Bruker, Renishaw, WITEC, B&WTek, Avantes, Metrohm, Merkim, Atomika. We are also proud of Turkish Airlines as TURCMOS official airlines.
