Events and Courses for Students

FOUCS Tunisia

2 - 5 September 2015

FOCUS/IONS Tunis 2015 is a 4-day conference targeted at PhD, MSc and engineer students working in the field of optics and photonics. During the conference students will get the opportunity to present their latest scientific results, discuss their difficulties, and share their experiences.

Main goals:
Networking: Moving beyond our borders and having more international students.
Discussing scientific results
Sharing experiences
Raise awareness of the beauty and accessibility of science through the given seminars in optics and photonics.
Address the important ways light technology and its many applications will be a key driver of innovation in the 21st century.
African countries definitively need better-prepared researchers in optics and photonics to pass-on their skills to younger generations, that is why it is important to present, discuss, and share latest scientific results.
Registration deadline 15 July 2015

ISCP 2012
Biological and Biomedical Engineering Symposium 2015

25- 27 September 2015

A collaborative multi-centre symposium on biological and biomedical engineering invites graduate students of engineering, life sciences, physics, medical imaging, computer science, and material engineering to a weekend of research enlightenment and professional development.  

This event, an SPIE sponsored FOCUS conference, emerged as the fusion of the McGill Biomedical Engineering Student Society yearly symposium, initiatives from the McGill SPIE Student Chapter and close collaboration from SPIE and IEEE Student Chapters of neighbouring universities.
