2014 brings our third annual European Student Chapter Leadership Workshop back to Brussels, Belgium at SPIE Photonics Europe. SPIE's first European Leadership Workshop was held in Brussels in 2012 and then moved to SPIE Optical Metrology in Munich, Germany this year. We are excited to be back at Photonics Europe and to continue providing our popular Leadership Workshop in two locations.
Offering two Leadership Workshops allows students more flexibility and the ability to choose which workshop is more convienient for them and their chapter. Student chapter members are welcome to attend either (or both) workshops but only one Officer Travel Grant will be awarded to one chapter representative per calendar year. Therefore your chapter must choose which conference and Leadership Workshop to use the grant. At Photonics Europe the Leadership Workshop will be held on 13 April, 2014 with many other student and professional development events continuing throughout the conference. Come gain leadership skills and network with other chapter members while enjoying Brussels!
The second Leadership Workshop, which is continually our largest will be held again at Optics + Photonics in sunny San Diego, California. The fun-filled week will start on 16 August, 2014.
Start planning early! The Photonics Europe Officer Travel Grant application is now open and the deadline is 15 January, 2014. Please review our Chapter Management page for Officer Travel Grant details and Optics + Photonics application deadlines. We hope to see you in 2014!
