Events and Courses for Students

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.

IONS KOALA is the Conference on Optics, Atoms and Laser Applications (KOALA) held annually in Australia and New Zealand. KOALA encompasses a broad variety of topics within the field of optics and photonics. These include but are not limited to, atomic, molecular and optical physics, quantum optics, spectroscopy, micro and nanofacrication, biomedical imaging, metrology, nonlinear optics and laser physics research. Most attendees are at the very beginning of their careers, so this is a great way to discover a wide range of possible directions within the world of optics and photonics.

KOALA is designed to allow students to discuss their research whilst providing them with a chance to network with their peers who are working in various universities across a variety of fields. Our aim is that students gain a fresh perspective as well as the opportunity to learn about exciting research being conducted. Students will also get the chance to develop valuable communication skills through presenting their research to their peers working in a variety of fields.
