EOS Conferences at the World of Photonics Congress (WPC2017)

Munich, Germany
26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017
Submission Timeframe: 
17 October 2016 - 3 March 2017


EOS Optical Technologies conferences include:

(Conference on Optomechanical Engineering is merged into Manufacturing of Optical Systems conference)

These already established Conferences will be held for the first time under one title: EOS Optical Technologies.
EOS Optical Technologies addresses all aspects of optical technologies like development and manufacturing of optical systems and components, opto-fluidics, optomechanical engineering and light engineering.

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. 

EOS Conferences are held under the umbrella of the World of Photonics Congress 2017, the leading international congress for optical technologies in Europe (26-29 June 2017).

World of Photonics Congress 2017

The EOS Conferences on Optical Technologies takes place under the umbrella of the World of Photonics Congress (25-29 June 2017), the leading international congress for optical technologies in Europe and one of the top 3 congresses of its kind worldwide. It is organised by Messe München International and held in conjunction with LASER World of PHOTONICS (26-29 June 2017), the international trade fair for optical technologies including components, systems and applications, so there is an intense exchange between the scientific and industrial sectors.


RespiceSME workshop “Aligning Education with Innovation”

Duration: June 28, 2017, 13:00-18:00
Program: http://www.respice-sme.eu/downloads-links/
The goal of the workshop is to analyse the challenges for improving the curricula of photonics courses and therewith, the educational offer in photonics (and related subjects) for students. Furthermore, it will be discussed and shown what tools and measures can be used in order to better scope the requirements of the industry (in particular SMEs) for improving and updating the curricula of physics / photonics courses.
