EOSAM 2023 was held in the beautiful city of Dijon France, 11-15 September, at the congress center. It was organized this year with the French Optical Society (SFO) that is one of the seventeen national optical societies (NOS) of the European Optical Society (EOS). We worked together to ensure a meeting with the highest quality and novel research results in different fields of optics. Thus, nine topical optical meetings, four focused sessions (on selected hot topics deemed to be of special interest to conference attendees), EU Project Sessions, Early Stage Researcher Sessions, and sessions on the industrial mastering of optical technologies and systems were scheduled in parallel in large rooms or the big auditorium to fit our over 500 attendees. The exhibition and industrial program fostered relations between science and industry. All attendees took benefit of the lunch time, the lunch included in the registration made sure all attendees stayed in same location, for a good and efficient networking. After all, EOSAM is the platform for the European optics and photonics community to meet!
A lot of PhD level students attended the conference, over 30% of the attendees were in fact students. Master-level students were also given a chance to come and join the tutorials on Monday. Ten tutorial speakers took the stage before the official opening of the conference on Tuesday: Sébastien Bidault, Julien Charton, Sara Ducci, John M. Dudley, Oliver Fähnle, Philippe Grelu, Sandrine Lévêque-Fort, Rüdiger Paschotta, Roozbeh Shokri, Antoine Dubrouil.

The European Optical Society Annual Meeting, EOSAM, is a major international scientific conference covering all aspects of optics and photonics that are presented in topical meetings and special sessions. This year, EOSAM 2022 took place in Portugal, at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, FEUP, in close collaboration with the Portuguese Society for Research and Development in Optics and Photonics, SPOF, and INESC TEC - Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science. EOS also collaborated with Sedoptica, PhotonicsFinland, Promoptica, and the European Photonics Industry Consortium, EPIC for the event.
The conference was chaired by Manuel Filipe Costa, President of SPOF, and Maite Flores-Arias, Secretary of EOS as General chairs; Orlando Frazao and Susana Novais, INESC-tec as Local Chairs; and Patricia Segonds, President-Elect of EOS and Gilles Pauliat, President of EOS as Program Chairs. The EOS Office coordinated and handled the organization led by the Executive Director, Elina Koistinen, together with Conference Manager Jussi Ahonen and Conference Assistant Tiina Romppanen.
EOSAM 2022 included high-quality program within the following 13 Topical meetings (TOMs), 3 special sessions and an exhibition:
