Short Courses

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 will be offering an expanded short course programme covering a wide range of exciting topics in photonics and laser technology.

Short courses participants are generally targeted individuals who wish to learn about a topic outside their main area of expertise. They are intended for engineers and scientists.

Twelve courses will be scheduled. Each course is scheduled in two parts: Course Part I (1 hour ½), coffee break, Course Part II (1 hour ½). The courses are open to attendees of the World of Photonics Congress and Laser World of Photonics Exhibition subject to payment of the course fee.
