Plan to Attend

It is our pleasure to welcome your attendance at SPIE’s 2017 International Symposium on Optics & Optoelectronics. An excellent technical programme has been prepared, focusing on cutting edge topics, recent advances in petawatt photonics, high-power and high-repetition rate systems, diode-pumped laser systems, FELs and X-ray lasers, along with the latest research in optical sensing, holography, X-ray optics, metamaterials, nonlinear and quantum optics.

Over 700 presentations prove that this event is recognized as an important forum for science, government, and industry to access and share information on optical technologies. The event focuses specifically on the research aspects of optics and optoelectronics science and technology, with a special emphasis on the existing and upcoming European and international laser infrastructures.

The symposium features plenary sessions featuring current hot topics, seventeen conferences and a workshop on Intense, High Average Power Lasers, each incorporating oral and poster presentations. The program promises an exciting week, with excellent science and technology in a setting conducive to international interchange, networking, and exchanging ideas.

We invite you to share the most recent developments and applications at SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics 2017.  Join us for this exciting meeting in the beautiful city of Prague!
