- Joensuu, Finland
This event has the objective to bring together senior and junior scientists around the challenges that we are facing now in our field.

Optical on-chip integration celebrates its 50th anniversary!
For this occasion, the European Optical Society organizes its first topical meeting on Integrated Optics.
This event has the objective to bring together senior and junior scientists around the challenges that we are facing now in our field. While passing from an optical laboratory to a handheld device, the size, the cost, and the power consumption has to be reduced. Applied Science and Engineering have to merge to tackle these issues together.
The scope of the conference is large, since Integrated Optics and Photonics rely on many challenges. The topics involve devices, materials, applications, as well as industrial aspects. Submissions are welcomed for both oral and poster presentations.
Beyond the technical and scientific symposium, the conference is for both Industry and Academy who are playing an important role in this tremendous field. This long-term cooperation has always been the driving force, which makes nowadays Integrated Optics the unavoidable tool for future devices. Alongside the scientific program, an industrial exhibition is organized, where companies get an opportunity to present their key products and know-how on the booths, pitching in industrial sessions, as well as promoting their know-how on posters. Start-ups are given a special space to promote their expertise with a very low cost of 350 EUR. Read more.
The conference dinner will be held at Botania, the exciting botanical garden, with the perfect ambiance to celebrate light during the otherwise dark winter season. Botania is an event garden with several different climates, butterflies, and a great lighting and atmosphere, orchestrated by the light artist Kari Kola, the current owner of the event garden complex. Several events are organized at the venue monthly, varying from jazz concerts to Scientific events like the Scifest.
For this first meeting we expect a broad international audience. The main goals of the event are to meet around informal discussions, comforting collaborations, sharing ideas with academic and industrial partners.
