25 - 29 June 2017, ICM - International Congress Centre, Munich, Germany
International conference to highlight new frontiers in lasers, photonics and optical science across a wide range of technical areas
The CLEO®/Europe-EQEC conference series has a strong tradition as a comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers in Europe. With technical co-sponsorship provided by the European Physical Society (EPS), the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) and the Optical Society (OSA), CLEO®/Europe reflects a strong international presence in the complementary research traditions of laser science, photonics and quantum electronics. More specifically, CLEO®/Europe emphasizes applied physics, optical engineering and applications of photonics and laser technology whereas EQEC emphasizes basic research in laser physics, nonlinear optics and quantum optics.
CLEO®/Europe will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas including laser source development, materials, ultrafast science, fibre optics, nonlinear optics, terahertz sources, high-field physics, optical telecommunications, nanophotonics, biophotonics.
EQEC will feature the fundamentals of quantum optics, quantum information, atom optics, ultrafast optics, nonlinear phenomena and self-organization, plasmonics and metamaterials, fundamental nanooptics, theoretical and computational photonics.
This combination provides a unique forum to obtain informative overviews and discuss recent advances in a wide spectrum of topics, from fundamental light-matter interactions and new sources of coherent light to technology development, system engineering and applications in industry and applied science. Over five days CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2017 will feature a large number of technical contributions in parallel sessions and posters drawn from industry, university and research organizations from around the world. Topics will cover a very wide spectrum of technical areas including laser development and new optical materials, nonlinear optics and nonlinear dynamics, ultrafast phenomena, telecommunications technologies, atom and quantum optics, quantum information precision metrology, fibre optics, sensing photonic crystals, nanophotonics and metamaterials etc. Particular highlights of the 2017 programme will be a series of special symposia that will survey recent advances in the emerging areas. Additionally a series of joint sessions organised in cooperation with collocated conferences will be organised.
Held every two years, CLEO®/Europe-EQEC conference has become the benchmark conference where European researchers present their most groundbreaking results in a wide range of areas in fundamental optics and applied photonics. With recent advances in optical sources, new materials and novel approaches to manipulating and controlling light, 2017 promises to be the most exciting conference yet!
