EOS biennial Meeting will be held 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. The meeting will once again include several topical meetings, tutorials, institute visits, industrial exhibition, and more. The latest results in optics and photonics research will be presented.

The Industrial Exhibition introduces several companies to the meeting attendees and a Meet&Greet event offers companies and students a platform for networking. This is a great opportunity for students looking for a job or internship, as well as companies looking for new talents.

The Topical Meetings (TOMs) include:

TOM 1- Silicon Photonics and Guided-Wave Optics
TOM 2- Freeform Optics for Illumination, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
TOM 3- Optical System Design, Tolerancing, and Manufacturing
TOM 4- Bio-Medical Optics
TOM 5- Metamaterials, Plasmonics and Resonant Nanophotonics
TOM 6- Frontiers in Optical Metrology
TOM 7- Organic & Hybrid Semiconductor Materials and Devices
TOM 8- Adaptive Optics & Information driven optical systems
TOM 9- Optical tapered fibers for light manipulation on the nanoscale - NEW

Special workshops and sessions:

EU Project result dissemination Session
Grand Challenges of Photonics Session
Tutorials and Autumn Physics School
Prior to the actual conference program, tutorials and autumn physics school are organized at the conference venue on Monday 8 October.
