The 2014 Winter College on Optics will focus on theory, devices, applications, and other fundamentals of photonics 10-21 February at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy.

SPIE Fellow Maria Calvo, SPIE member Lorenzo Pavesi, along with Pavel Cheben and Luis V. Ponce, will be co-directors.

Local organizers are Joseph Niemela and Miltcho B. Danailov.

SPIE is a co-sponsor of the ICTP Winter College and will once again provide poster prizes and complimentary access to the SPIE Digital Library for participants.

The Winter College on Optics is open to scientists and students from all countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA and will be divided into four parts. The first one presents foundations of electromagnetic optics, optical waveguides, and photodetectors.

The second part is dedicated to integrated optics theory, photonic circuits design, numerical simulations, special sources for integrated optics, and a special focus on assembling and packing techniques for photonic materials.

The third part of the Winter College on Optics will be dedicated to technological applications of waveguide platform and optoelectronic circuits.

Finally, the fourth part concentrates on photonics devices, non-linear photonics and plasmonics, and applications of photonics in biomedicine and renewable energy.

Throughout the year, SPIE collaborates with the ICTP by providing support for the ICTP-INFN-SPIE Quantum Cascade Laser Lab, the Trieste System Optical Sciences and Applications (TSOSA) Committee, Electronic Journal Delivery Service (e-JDS), and the Anchor Optics Research and Active Learning in Optics and Photonics (ALOP) programs.
