Department of Engineering, University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, Aversa, Italy

Title: "Polymer optical fiber-based plasmonic biosensors for medical diagnostics" Abstract: In the last years, the classic geometries of sensors based on Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) have been adapted for optical fibers (both extrinsic and intrinsic configurations), thus providing a simple approach to low-cost plasmonic sensing. For instance, polymer optical fibers (POFs) are particularly advantageous due to their excellent flexibility, easiness of manipulation, great numerical aperture, large diameter and, last but not least, to the fact that plastic can withstand smaller bend radii than glass. In bio-chemical applications, a very specific medium (receptor layer) for the selective binding of the considered analyte is deposited on a gold layer of the SPR platform. A simple and low-cost experimental setup, consisting of a halogen lamp and a spectrometer, can be arranged to measure the light spectrum transmitted through the SPR-POF sensors. Interesting applications have been devised and successfully implemented exploiting these low-cost plasmonic POF platforms combined with different receptors, such as molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs), chemical receptors, and bio-receptors (Aptamers and Antibodies). For example, exploiting SPR in a D-shaped POF probe with different receptors, interesting results have been achieved in medical diagnostics for cancer bio-markers detection, Celiac disease antigens monitoring, L-nicotine detection, thrombin detection, SARS-CoV-2 virus and Pancreatic Amylase detection. A survey of the above medical applications will be presented, highlighting the strengthness points and the limitations of each one, and pointing out the possible future implementations of the platform as point-of-care device, as well.

Venue, Travel and Accommodation


The Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies

The Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies (CEZAMAT) at the Warsaw University of is located at 19 Poleczki Street in Warsaw’s Ursynów district. It is located 5–6 minutes away by car from the airport and has good public transport accessibility. The site also includes a covered parking lot for 180 cars and is accessible for people with disabilities. For further information please visit

The desk for registration, information, and the distribution of documents will be open from 16:00 h onwards on 19 June and from 07:30 h onwards on 20 June. Upon registration, please have your personal ID or registration receipt ready to ensure a quick and smooth registration process.

The Welcome Cocktail will be held on Sunday 19 June at 18:00 h at CEZAMAT.

The Gala dinner will take place in the Building of Physics of the Warsaw University of Technology. The Building of Physics is, next to the Main Building, one of the oldest buildings of the Warsaw University of Technology. Both buildings have a common architectural concept (designed by Stefan Szyller). The building was shaped around a courtyard (Aula) covered with a colourful glass roof. The courtyard is surrounded by arcaded cloisters. Additional tickets for the accompanying persons for Gala Dinner and Welcome Reception only is 95 EUR.


Warsaw is the vibrant capital of Poland. Its wide architectural variety reflects the city's long and turbulent history, from Gothic churches and neoclassical palaces to Soviet-period building blocks and modern skyscrapers. The old town was restored after severe damage in World War II and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. Its core is the Market Square, with pastel-coloured buildings and open-air cafes. The Warsaw Mermaid Monument in its centre is a symbol of the city. The surrounding streets are a sample of medieval architecture, with the walls, the barbican and St. John's Cathedral.

Warsaw has plenty of restaurants, shops, flea markets, parks, and museums. The city is also very walkable, with an extensive and fast public transport system—you can choose from buses, trams, and the metro.

For a complete overview, visit


Warsaw is a city of many faces: a contrasting blend of past and present with the architectural landscape composed of historical and soc-realist buildings neighbouring post-modern skyscrapers. The past is magnificently represented by the post-war reconstruction of the Old Town which has been completely destroyed in WWII. The Palace of Culture and Science, a long-standing symbol of communism, is an epitome of soc-realism style. Post-modern architectural landscape was shaped by such designers.


Being a seat to many important scholarly institutions such as The Warsaw School of Economics, The Warsaw University or The Centre of Adam Smith, Warsaw offers an excellent capacity to influence the young generation of future business leaders. Furthermore, new business initiatives and investments together with a growing number of international fairs, conferences and meetings held each year confirms Warsaw’s claim as a business hub of Central and Eastern Europe as well as an interesting spot on the map of the global meetings industry.


Be inspired by Warsaw citizens’ commitment to rebuild their city after WWII destructions. The reconstruction effort, unprecedented on a European scale, gained the appreciation of UNESCO, who in 1980 included it on the World Cultural and Natural Heritage List. We invite you to come and admire the historical soul of the city.


Warsaw is a perfect embodiment of changes that have taken place in Poland in the past 20 years. The huge business and population growth is constantly reshaping the city skyline. Add to that the vibrant night life with a musical scene responding to all tastes—from swanky clubs and pubs to more alternative places—and you get a fascinating new destination to explore.
