About DLED

The annual German Luminescence and Electron Spin Resonance dating (DLED) meeting allows luminescence and ESR dating experts from Central Europe to meet in order to present their latest research findings and to network. The meeting is usually held in Germany or one of its surrounding countries. DLED was last hosted by the MPI in Leipzig in 2008 and with the closing down of the Department of Human Evolution in 2021 this will be our final opportunity to host the meeting. We look forward to welcoming you in Leipzig.
