World of Photonics Congress 2017: Structure
The World of Photonics Congress covers the entire world of photonics in a single event: Scientific conferences with plenaries and joint sessions and a practice-oriented lecture program address all aspects of optical technologies.
Clear conference structure to transparently depict all topics
To depict all aspects of optical technologies, the conferences at the World of Photonics Congress are oriented to the research sector’s close proximity to industry on the one hand and to photonics applications in the industrial and medical sectors on the other.
The European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the European Quantum Electronics Conference (CLEO® / Europe-EQEC) is the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers in Europe. CLEO® / Europe will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas, EQEC, on the other hand, features the fundamentals of quantum optics.
CLEO® / Europe-EQEC 2017 was organized by the European Physical Society (EPS), the Optical Society (OSA) and the IEEE Photonics Society.
LiM focuses on the latest developments as well as future trends in the field of laser material processing including process engineering, system technology and process optimization.
LiM was organized by the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT).
The conference "EOS Optical Technologies" addresses all aspects of optical technologies like development and manufacturing of optical systems and components, opto-fluidics, optomechanical engineering and light engineering.
Optical Technologies was organized by the European Optical Society (EOS).
Optical Metrology focuses on the latest research in optical metrology, videometrics and machine vision with applications for solving measurement and inspection problems in industrial design and production engineering, vehicle navigation, multimedia technology, architecture, archaeology and the arts.
Optical Metrology was organized by SPIE Europe.
SPIE Digital Optical Technologies 2017 is a new conference focused on the components, systems design, and applications of emerging digital optical technologies. This includes technologies such as 3D sensors, immersive multimedia, novel displays, light sources and imaging systems.
Digital Optical Technologies was organized by SPIE Europe.
ECBO covers basic science, new technology and applications in the fields of advanced microscopy, clinical and biomedical spectroscopy, diffuse optical imaging, molecular imaging, optical coherence tomography and other coherence techniques, therapeutic laser applications, laser-tissue interactions, opto-acoustic methods, and other new biophotonics techniques.
The 2017 conference was organized by OSA with the support of SPIE.
The application panels revolve around practical experiences in laser and photonics applications in medical technology and industrial manufacturing. The lectures cover a wide range of topics and include information about new application sectors and the market potential of laser technology, such as machining lightweight components, additive manufacturing or ophthalmology.
The application panels are developed by Messe München in close cooperation with the photonics industry. They took place in the forums at LASER World of PHOTONICS trade fair.
