Additional Conference
Information

Joseph (Joe) Wendel Haus, a long-time program committee member of the Active Photonic Platforms conference, sadly passed away January 2019. Dr. Haus was a Professor in the Electro-Optics and Photonics department at the University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio, USA and a fellow of SPIE, APS and OSA. A prolific scientist, Dr. Haus has made several world-leading contributions to the field of non-linear and structured photonics. To honor his legacy and body of work, as well as his long-time service to the Active Photonic Platforms conference, the conference opens with a special session dedicated to his memory.
