Preliminary Program

The Final Program is now available here.

6th EOS Topical Meeting on Optical Microsystems (OµS’15)


OµS’15 is the 6th edition of the international conference wholly dedicated to optical microsystems organized by the European Optical Society (EOS) and the Italian Society of Optics and Photonics (SIOF), Italian Branch of the EOS.
An optical microsystem can be defined as a complex system, able to perform one or more sensing and actuation functions, taking advantage of the progress in micro- and nano-technologies to integrate in a smart way optical devices with electronic, mechanical and sensing components. The increasing interest in this field arises from the perspective applications that would significantly improve the quality of life. The list of possibilities offered by these enabling technologies is very long and seems to increase day by day. Optical microsystems are finding applications not only in ICT, but also in biotechnologies, medicine, food and environmental monitoring, aerospace and automotive, homeland security, etc.
The conference programme will focus on fundamental as well as more applied topics. Biosensors, biochips and lab-on-chip, microfluidic and optofluidic systems, non-linear and quantum optical devices, silicon-based optoelectronics and MOEMS, chemical and physical optical microsensors,  new characterization methods for materials and devices, novel imaging techniques, biomimetic devices and systems are among the hot topics of the conference.

2nd EOS Topical Meeting on Optics at the Nanoscale (ONS’15)


New properties in nanoscale structures can be dramati-cally tuned with size and shape of the nanostructures. Completely different optical behaviors are produced compared to the bulk counterparts, such as narrow line widths for emission, solar energy conversion, etc.
Indeed materials and applications require strong effort to develop spectroscopy and microscopy tools allowing visualization and manipulation of optical properties with nanoscale resolution.
Optics at Nanoscale is a Topical Meeting that covers a spectrum from applied to basic research of this domain providing a forum for all the aspects with the purpose of advancing the state-of-the-art of nanoscale optics.


  • Imaging: functional imaging, methods, enhanced resolution
  • Materials: metamaterials, photonics crystals, plasmonics, nano-engineered materials, graphene, nonlinearities
  • Concepts & functions: Optical magnetism, optical mimetism
  • Quantum optics at the nanoscale: sources, detectors
