  • Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics®/Europe - European Quantum Electronics Conference
       (CLEO®/Europe-EQEC Conference) - organised by EPS, OSA, IEEE Photonics Society
  • European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) - organised by OSA
  •   Conference on Optical Metrology - organised by SPIE, EOS, WLT
  • Lasers in Manufacturing - organised by LiM
  • 5th EOS Conference on Manufacturing of Optical Systems - organised by EOS
  • 4th EOS Conference on Optofluidics - organised by EOS
  • 2nd EOS Conference on Optomechanical Engineering - organised by EOS
  • 2nd EOS Conference on Light Engineering - organised by EOS

The organisational structure of the World of Photonics Congress, which indicates its application orientation and the topics covered by the various conferences, gives speakers and congress participants optimum transparency, which makes it perfect for planning purposes.

The WORLD OF PHOTONICS CONGRESS 2017 to take place June 25 - 29, 2017
covers the whole spectrum from science to application. Current fundamental research, the practice-oriented development of photonics solutions, success stories for industrial applications, networking and knowledge-sharing – the World of Photonics Congress has been bridging the gap between science and industry since 1973.
