Dr. Hilmi Volkan Demir is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and serves as the Founding Director of LUMINOUS! Center of Excellence for Semiconductor Lighting and Displays. Concurrently, he is the EURYI Associate Professor at Bilkent University and UNAM – National Nanotechnology Research Center of Turkey. He earned his PhD from Stanford University, USA. His current research interests include the science and technology of nanocrystal optoelectronics for semiconductor lighting; excitonics and plasmonics for high-efficiency light generation and harvesting; and wireless in vivo sensing and smart implants for future healthcare. Demir has contributed to commercialization and licensing of several new enabling technologies as well as establishing a successful startup company and led to >20 patent applications, several of which have currently been used, owned or licensed by the industry. These scientific and entrepreneurship activities resulted in several important international and national awards including European Science Foundation European Young Investigator Award, European Union Marie Curie Fellowship Award, TUBITAK Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey Young Investigator TESVIK Award, and TUBA-GEBIP Distinguished Young Scientist Award. He has been selected The Outstanding Young Person in the World (TOYP Award) of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Federation of Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs Worldwide in the category of academic achievement and leadership.

Alexander O. Govorov is a Distinguished Professor of Theoretical Physics at Ohio University in Athens, United States. He received his PhD in 1991 from the Institute of Semiconductor Physics in Novosibirsk, Russia. In 2001 he moved to the U.S. and joined Ohio University. His research focuses on the theory of optical and electronic properties of nanostructures and bio-assemblies. His theoretical predictions motivated experiments in many research labs worldwide. Dr. Govorov is the author of more than 240 papers. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a recipient of several international awards including the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the A. v. Humboldt Foundation (Germany), the Ikerbasque Fellow Award (Spain), the 2012 Walton Visitor Award (Ireland), the Chang Jiang (Yangtze River) Chair Professorship (China), the 2014 Jacques-Beaulieu Excellence Research Chair Award (INRS, Montreal, Canada), and the 1000-Talant Award (Sichuan, China).
