Spatiotemporal complexity in nonlinear optics - Lake Como School of Advanced Studies

Como, Italy
31 August 2015 - 4 September 2015

Website: http://scno.lakecomoschool.org/

Registration and payment have to be completed by 1st June 2015.
The objective of the school is to present interdisciplinary approaches to the modeling and understanding of complex optical systems, ranging from lasers to multimode wave guides and optical communication networks. For example, consider thermodynamic approaches to describe spatio-temporal pattern formation in lasers, turbulence theory applied to both integrable and near-integrable dynamical systems such as fibers for supercontinuum generation, and information theory analysis of nonlinear methods to overcome classical limits to the capacity of transmission channels.

FIAT LUX Conference

Sapienza - Università di Roma, Italy
3 June 2015 - 5 June 2015

Website: http://www.fiatluxconference.com/

In the common language light means knowledge: “I had a lightning”! In nature, light has a larger dimension, regrouping together three main functionalities: light means energy, light means information, light means also time rhythm. All of them are somehow different expressions of “knowledge”: getting information and communicate means in fact to know the surrounding, acquire energy from such knowledge and start associated actions. Physics and metaphysics have always analysed the surrounding nature from points of view which might be different but never opposite. FIAT LUX wants to be the place where scientists philosophers and theologians will get together to discuss on the same topics, trying to find similar languages and common understanding.
