EOSMOC 2013 is held under the umbrella of the WORLD OF PHOTONICS CONGRESS 2013, the leading international congress for optical technologies in Europe (12 - 16 May 2013).




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.

The 3rd EOS Conference on Manufacturing of Optical Components, EOSMOC 2013, will highlight significant technology trends, emerging technologies and associated prospective developments. This meeting provides a forum for all aspects of optics fabrication and testing, ranging from micro to large-scale optics and from high value one-off to mass-produced components.

Held in conjunction with the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2013 trade fair, one of the worlds largest for optics, it will be a unique opportunity for the exchange of information with renowned researchers, scientists, engineers and professionals from all over Europe!
