The European Optical Society, in cooperation with the Bremer Institut für angewandte Strahltechnik GmbH (BIAS) and the Institute for Microsensors, -actuators and –systems (IMSAS), is organizing the 1st EOS Topical Meeting on Micro- and Nano-Optoelectronic Systems in Bremen, from 7 - 9 December 2011 featuring a special session on Digital Holography on Friday, 9 December on the occasion of Werner Jüptner’s 70th birthday.

The focus of the conference will be to explore new developments and applications in the field of optoelectronic systems using approaches based on micro- or nano-optics. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) design, simulation and fabrication of micro- and nano-optical systems, integration of micro- and nano-optical systems in micro-electronics, novel functionality, applications of microsystems using micro- and nano-optics including optical metrology and sensors.

The last day of the conference will be devoted to digital holography with an emphasis on microsystems on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Werner Jüptner, former director of BIAS.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Bremen!

Venue And Social Programme

Take advantage of your stay in this northern city and discover the historical market square, the popular Weser promenade and the picturesque Schnoor quarter. Enjoy a hands-on approach to science and visit the Universum presenting science as an adventure, with more than 250 exhibits in the Science Centre and EntdeckerPark plus temporary exhibitions in the Schaubox. Visit the Bremen Christmas market and “Schlachte Magic” with its 160 Christmas stalls, beautifully decorated and assembled right in front of the 600-year-old town hall. For more information on Bremen and its destinations, please visit the official tourism website www.bremen-tourismus.de

Join our walking tour through the historic City Centre followed by a festive Dinner at the Bremer Ratskeller on Wednesday, 7 December 2011 from 17.30 until ~22.30 CET !

Discover and experience Bremen´s key attractions that include the idyllic Schnoor Quarter and Böttcherstreet. Let yourself be enchanted by stories on patrician buildings round the Market Square, the city´s history and local residents and take a picture of the Town Hall and Roland statue (UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Bremen's Market Square is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Europe. Its ensemble of historic buildings is unique and consists of the Town Hall, dating from 1405, St Peter's Cathedral, begun in 1042, the "Schütting", Bremen's historic Chamber of Commerce built in 1537, the merchants' houses that date back to the Weser Renaissance era around 1600, and the statue of Roland, the symbol of the city's freedom, erected in 1404. The modern "Haus der Bürgerschaft", Bremen's state parliament building, was built in 1966 and forms a sensitive counterpoint to the rest of the square.

In December, the festive season bathes Bremen in a soft light; fairy lights, candles and the lovingly adorned stalls create a special atmosphere. The Christmas market will be an outstanding experience during your visit to Bremen with its air full of delicious aromas and the “Glühwein” (mulled wine) which you are going to taste.  There are numerous Christmas stalls, wonderfully romantic and beautifully decorated, assembled right in front of the town hall on the historical market square.

After the guided walk through the historic city centre, you will stop at Bremen's Ratskeller where your evening will continue with a festive dinner. The Ratskeller is one of Germany's oldest and most famous cellar taverns since 1405. More than 650 only German wines are served here.

An expense contribution of 15.00 € to join the guided walking tour is already included in the conference fee.

Should you have any special food requirements (vegetarian), please let us know by 2 December 2011 by sending an email to bremen@myeos.org in order to facilitate the organization of the conference dinner.
