The Australian and New Zealand Conferences on Optics and Photonics (ANZCOP) 2019 brings together four co-located conferences with a central theme of optics and photonics.  The ANZCOP conferences will connect people across all scientific disciplines associated with optics and photonics, incorporating general streams on optical science and technology and focused topical conferences on micro- and nano-materials and devices, biomedical photonics, and astronomical instrumentation.

The meeting will incorporate presentation and discussion of science in plenaries, themed sessions, speed science discussions, and industry engagement forums. The meeting will engage trainees to researcher leaders, chemists to biologists to clinicians to physicists, and academics, industry, and policy makers. With this new multi-conference format we aim to forge new transdisciplinary and translational collaborations.

The event will take place over five days, 8-12 December 2019, in the recently built ‘New Academic Street’ RMIT University campus on Swanston Street in the Melbourne CBD.  On behalf of AOS, SPIE, and the symposium organisers, we invite and encourage you to participate in ANZCOP 2019 in Melbourne, Australia.  

We hope to see you in Melbourne!
