Optomechanical Engineering, the branch of Optical Engineering related to the simulation and construction of complete optical systems, is a key discipline in most fields of optics and photonics. The building of instrumentation which needs to work in real-world environments, from space to underwater or inside the human body, strongly relies in the approaches taken to compensate the effects of hostile environments. Optomechanical Engineering will bring on the most relevant experts and approaches of this evolving field in the land between optics and mechanics. Contributions on simulation methods (mechanical, optical, thermal, etc.) tolerancing for optomechanics, novel assembly methods and materials, design strategies, and use cases are welcome. The aim of the conference is to bring together the vibrant community of optomechanical engineers working in fields as diverse as aerospace and medicine to share methods and experiences and exchange practical knowledge.
Optofluidics emerged approximately 10 years ago aiming at the fusion of integrated optics with microfluidics. Since then, a wealth of new scientific principles and technologies have emerged. Through this conference, the latest developments in Optofluidics will be explored, serving as the main meeting point of the international optofluidics community.

Manufacturing of Optical Systems will highlight significant technology trends, emerging technologies and associated prospective developments in the field of optics fabrication and testing. This conference provides a forum for all aspects of optics fabrication and testing, ranging from micro to large-scale optics and from high value one-off to mass-produced components including lessons learned papers on special manufacturing issues such as polishing process stability and finishing processes for high-end optics, optics featuring clear apertures below 1 mm or above 100 mm in diameter. One main goal of the meeting is to provide a better link between the design, the manufacturing, and the characterization of optical components and systems. For the first time, there will be a reviewed industrial poster session displayed during the whole conference with companies presenting their key technology competences.
TU Delft Aula Conference Center, Address: Mekelweg 5, 2628 CD Delft, Netherlands
After holding two biennial meetings in Berlin, Adlershof, in 2014 and 2016, EOS will arrange the next meeting in Delft, Netherlands. The meeting will take place at the Delft University of Technology, in October 08 - 12, 2018.
Netherlands is the hot spot for photonics in Europe and the strong optics research and industry in Delft makes it a perfect location to hold the upcoming symposium.
Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, from medical sciences to space exploration, telecommunications, information processing and numerous industrial and military applications of all kinds.
This 5th edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature 3 different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects.
Singular Optics, Informative content of statistical optical fields, including optical chaos, polarization optics and coherence,Optical correlation devices based on diffractive optical elements, including optical and digital holography, fractal optics, optical sensors, Optical correlation diagnostics, interferometry and microscopy of rough surfaces and random media, New applications of correlation optics in biology and medicine.
Photonics Finland organises Optics & Photonics Days 2017 on May 29-31 at Radisson Blu Hotel next to the marketplace of Oulu. The convention starts with a get-together event on May 29 at 18:00. The program of the conference reflects current activities and trends in Optics and Photonics in Finland, gathering both academic researchers and industrial representatives.
Information photonics is an emerging field that includes state-of-the-art methods, devices, models, and applications related to the utilization of optics in information society. The objective of this meeting is to bring together international scientists, researchers, engineers and students to discuss recent developments in the field of information photonics.
