EOS Optical Technologies conferences include:

The four already established Conferences will be held for the first time under one title: EOS Optical Technologies.
EOS Optical Technologies addresses all aspects of optical technologies like development and manufacturing of optical systems and components, opto-fluidics, optomechanical engineering and light engineering.

Advancements in technology and innovative manufacturing processes are crucial for optical sector growth in today's global markets. Markets with high developmental momentum include the energy and semiconductor, life sciences, health care and the agri-food industries. Optical technologies play a crucial role in these markets, the importance of sophisticated but economically priced optical components being vital to new products and applications. 

EOS Conferences are held under the umbrella of the World of Photonics Congress 2017, the leading international congress for optical technologies in Europe (26-29 June 2017).
