It all happens in Prague

Join your colleagues in Prague.

Why laser research has a home in the Czech Republic:

Prague has become home to a new era in laser-based research. The city has become the gateway to new regimes in fundamental physics, attracting the world's best scientists to unique research opportunities. It is also host to the ELI beamlines facility which utilizes high-power, high-repetition-rate lasers for high-field physics experiments. It is the first international laser user facility of its kind.

The SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics event offers multiple opportunities to advance research in optoelectronic technologies, which are further enhanced by being in this specific location. See first-hand how these advances may directly influence your particular area of research. Top paper submissions include optical sensors, holography, petawatt-class lasers, high-power, high-energy, and high-intensity lasers, non-linear optics, integrated optics, and laser acceleration.

Join your colleagues in Prague and network with like-minded leaders gathering in one city.
