7th EOS Topical Meeting on Optical Microsystems (OµS’17) 
3rd EOS Topical Meeting on Optics at the Nanoscale (ONS’17) 
7th EOS Topical Meeting on Optical Microsystems (OµS’17)
OµS’17 is the 7th 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.
Optical microsystems are now able to perform complex 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 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.

3rd EOS Topical Meeting on Optics at the Nanoscale (ONS’17)
New properties in nanoscale structures can be dramatically 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

Special Session: COST action MP1403 Nanoscale Quantum Optics Work Group 2 Meeting
The COST action MP1403 on Nanoscale Quantum Optics serves as European platform to enhance networking and research collaboration in the rapidly evolving field of quantum nanooptics that has substantial overlap with the topics covered in the UNO workshop series. The second half of the 3rd EOS Topical Meeting on Optics at the Nanoscale (ONS’17) will host the work group meeting on Nonlinearities and Ultrafast Processes in Nanostructured Media (WG2).

Topics of WG2 meeting

  • Coherent Control on the nanoscale
  • Nanoscale nonlinear response
  • Energy harvesting and energy transfer
  • Coherent spectroscopy
  • Active nanophotonics
  • Nanoscale transport

Capri is a beautiful and picturesque island in the Gulf of Naples, in the South of Italy. Its mild climate, the numerous monuments and island highlights, and last but not least the excellent Italian cuisine and wine culture make Capri a perfect location for relaxing and enjoying the Mediterranean atmosphere. The Island of Capri has two towns: Capri and Anacapri. If the Piazzetta of Capri is the unrivalled focus of the island's glamorous social life, filled with elegant sidewalk cafes, the pretty historic centre of Anacapri located on the slopes of Mount Solaro is the exact opposite, with its peaceful piazzas and bougainvillea and geranium festooned lanes. It is a concentration of Mediterranean colours, scents, and sounds. Town life here has remained authentic despite the island's tourism: tucked between the houses there are tiny, humble vegetable gardens surrounded by lush tropical plants. A walk around the centre of Anacapri will take you past tiny Neapolitan tailor shops, artisan shoemakers, ladies sitting in the shade outside working on their knitting while exchanging gossip and news...all with the scent of the town's lemon groves that permeates the air.
The EOS Topical Meetings in Capri will be held at the Conference Centre of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, the former Royal Swedish Academy Solar Observatory, Via Ceselle, Anacapri (Na), Italy. 
The nearest International Airport to Capri is Naples International Airport (http://www.aeroportodinapoli.it).
From Naples International Airport to train station/port
• From the airport the best and cheapest way to get to the train station/port is the AliBus, a bus departing every 20 minutes that takes passengers to either the train station and to the port in a less than 30 minutes.
• From the port to Capri
The island of Capri can be reached by regular ferry or hydrofoil connections from Naples and other locations like Sorrento, Amalfi and Salerno. Ferries depart from Molo Beverello in Naples, a few steps away from the bus stop.
A regular bus running every fifteen minutes takes from Capri to Anacapri.  Tickets can be purchased directly from the bus driver.
