23 – 27 June 2019, 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.
CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 conference is Europe’s largest conference on photonics and related research fields. The program features plenary lectures by Michal Lipson from Columbia University on Silicon Photonics, and by Anton Zeilinger from the Austrian Academy of Sciences on Entanglement. The overall program is considerably larger than in previous years, with 8 keynote and 6 tutorial speakers, and over 80 invited talks within the different topics. Furthermore, the conference will feature 12 short courses, more joint symposia fostering interdisciplinarity and interaction with other fields In 2019 new lecture halls will be made available, improving conditions for oral sessions and allowing for more comprehensive poster session program. .
Coinciding with the 50-year anniversary of integrated optics, the CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 conference will feature a special joint symposium on this topic with a tutorial presentation by John Bowers from UC Santa Barbara. Highlighting young talent, the 2019 Young Scientist Prize (YSP) will be awarded at the conference.
