The Optical Society (OSA) participated in a panel this week titled “How physics disciplinary societies can support teacher preparation and professional development” for the 2012 recipients of the U.S. Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.

Disasters both natural and human-caused can damage or destroy data and communications networks. Several presentations at the 2014 OFC Conference and Exposition, being held March 9-13 in San Francisco, Calif., USA will present new information on strategies that can mitigate the impacts of these disasters.

The Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO: 2014) will feature a Special Symposium in Memory of James P. Gordon—a tribute featuring a panel of three Nobel Prize winners and other luminaries in laser science, laser cooling and trapping, optical solitons and Big Bang theory who will reminisce and honor the pioneer of the first maser and one of the founding fathers of quantum electronics.

As the largest and most comprehensive international event for both the science and business of optical communications, OFC 2014—with thousands of attendees, 550 exhibiting companies (47 percent based outside the U.S.) and more than 800 technical and business presentations—will host the entire scope of optical communications, providing technical programming, exhibits and other activities for all audiences from systems and components manufacturers to service providers, carriers and enterprise.
