The 13th edition of the PLMCN (19 June (2012)-23 June (2012)) was held in Hangzhou (杭州), China, on the bank of the famous West Lake, an icon of Chinese culture renowned for having "influenced garden design in the rest of China as well as Japan and Korea over the centuries" and as reflecting "an idealized fusion between humans and nature."

Fabrice's talk was about QDs in Microcavities as n photon(s) emitters.

In the conference dinner, we shared our table with three Chineses, one of them actually a post-doc in Southampton whom we never met there! He recommendeded us to visit the Yellow Mountains after the conference, which we did.

Below are some pictures of the conference place, with more photos from our trip post-conference available here.
