European Optical Society proudly welcomes optics and photonics professionals to its 6thTopical Meeting on Terahertz Science & Technology (TST 2018) in Berlin, Germany. The topical meeting is expected to gather around 100 participants from Europe and all over the world to Radisson BLU Hotel, located in the heart of Berlin, between 6th and 9th of May, 2018. The chairs of the conference are Prof. Heinz-Wilhelm Hübers from German Aerospace Center(Germany) and Dr. Jozsef Fülöp from University of Pecs (Hungary). This topical meeting provides a platform on which the latest results in the generation, detection and use of THz radiation in science and technology will be presented and discussed.
