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 an 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!

    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.

    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.
