The 3rd AMPSECA’2018 is a sequel to the previous highly successfuls International Conferences on Advanced Materials for Photonics, Sensing and Energy AppliCAtions held in El Jadida on 2012 and in Agadir on 2017, Morocco. This event will be organized in Evora the beautiful city of Portugal. This International Conference on Advanced Materials for Photon- ics, Sensing and Energy AppliCAtions brings together leading researchers from different disciplines on one platform. This large gathering of academic and industrial researchers will provide in depth information on materials and their photonics, sensing and energy appliCAtions. This event will have empha- sis on energy related issues and will bring eminent scientists and program managers from various funding agencies in the form of plenary speakers and panel discussions. The idea of an international conference devoted to Advanced Materials for Photonics, Sensing and Energy AppliCAtions arose in Decem- ber 2010 during the interesting discussion between Prof. Y. Boughaleb, Prof. B. Sahraoui and Dr. A. Hajjaji about the pos- sibilities of creation a new space of scientific interaction for exchange and collaboration between the two shores of the Mediterranean. At that time with several Moroccan groups from universities and research institutes we decided to create “The Moroccan Association of Physics of Advanced Materials and their Applications” (L’Association Marocaine de Physique des Matériaux Avancés et de leurs Applications SMPM2A: who is co-organizer of the AMPSECA’2018 event. In general, this excellent idea of bringing together scientists from both parts and creating a meeting point seems timely. The obtained success of the previous meetings (according to the feedback of the participants) encouraged us to organize this third conference. AMPSECA’2018 will provide a unique opportunity for dis- cussions on the most recent developments and future perspec- tives in the field of Advanced Materials for Photonics, Sensing and Energy AppliCAtions, including biophotonics, by leading Moroccans, Europeans and international researchers. This meeting, without doubt, will stimulate better contacts between PhD students, junior and senior scientists from all over the world and create new space and new opportunities for rein- forcing or starting new international and multilateral collabora- tions. The conference will be consisted of plenary lectures, invited lectures and oral contributions. It should be indicated here that the previous AMPSECA organized in Agadir has attracted more than 400 scientists coming from 40 countries around the world.
