Northern Optics & Photonics 2018 conference, Lund

September 12 - September 14

The series of Northern Optics & Photonics conferences brings together optical scientists from the
Nordic and Baltic countries. The previous meetings were held in Uppsala (2000), Espoo (2003), Bergen (2006), Vilnius (2009), and Helsingør(2012) and Imatra/Lappeenranta region (2015). Northern Optics & Photonics 2018 (NOP 2018) will be arranged on 12-14 September 2018 in
Lund, Sweden. The conference is organised by the Swedish Optical Society and PhotonicSweden in conjunction with the Lund University and Lund Laser Centre and sponsored by optics/photonics societies of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Baltic countries.


There will be two parallel sessions one is devoted to presentations from academia and one to industry presentations. 2 Keynote speakers will highlight European research and developments. A poster session will provide an additional opportunity to display to the most recent developments and
achievements. It will also give an overview of Optics and Photonics in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries and offer a good platform for creating new collaborations.

An exhibition and a session with company presentations will be held in parallel to the technical sessions to provide industry, institutes and associations, an opportunity to display their products and services and bridge the gap between science and industry.

In the past editions the conference attracted:

~ 200 participants
~ 30-40 exhibitors

We will have:

2 keynote speakers
24 talks from academia
24 talks from industry
~ 30-40 poster contributions

The Northern Optics and Photonics conference is targeted to a general audience consisting of researchers, PhD students and representatives from industry of all fields of photonics and optics.

The general aim of the conference is to update the audience about new interesting developments and achievements in relevant research areas. A specific purpose is to stimulate collaboration and interaction with industry and academia and to broaden the knowledge of people who are not experts in the specific field.

To fulfill the purpose of the conference the presentations should to a considerable part consist of more general overview material, easily accessible for everyone in the audience.

The time frame for the presentation is 20 min with 15 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. Conference language is English.
