OPTIC is the annual meeting on optics/photonics in Taiwan, with an expected attendance of more than 1500 people from academia, government, and industry nationwide. The event includes 10 conferences covering a broad range of topics listed here.
The AOS is pleased to be a cooperating society and discounted registration is available for AOS members.
The Australian National University has announced its first professional training program in optical design using Zemax for scientists and engineers.
The course is led by Herbert Gross, editor and main author of the 6-volume series ‘Handbook of Optical Systems’ (Wiley-VCH).
For more information and to register for this exciting course, please visit the RSAA (ANU) website.
This year’s major local optics and photonics conference will be held in Fremantle from 8 – 11 December. It will incorporate the Australasian Conference on Optics, Lasers and Spectroscopy (ACOLS), the Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (ACOFT) and will also be the annual meeting of the Australian Optical Society.
Further details will be made available shortly, but all researchers working in the field are warmly encouraged to start making plans to attend the 2013 Australian and New Zealand Conference on Optics and Photonics.
Australian Optical Society members are reminded that the deadline for applications for all AOS awards is 31 March. Please consider applying or nominating students or colleagues. The AOS offers the following awards:
