Latin America Optics & Photonics Conference (LAOP)
- 16 - 21 November 2014
The Latin America Optics & Photonics Conference (LAOP) is the major conference sponsored by the Optical Society (OSA) in Latin America. In its third year the conference will be hosted in Mexico and co-sponsored by the Academia Mexicana de Óptica (AMO) and co-organized with the Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica (CIO). The scope of this meeting encompasses all of the major areas in optics and this meeting reports on the results of research that are having major impacts both in the scientific community as well as the applications world. Scientific topics include micro and nano-photonics, laser science and technology, atomic physics, advances in the development and use of modern spectroscopy, and quantum optics to mention a few. The meeting also has rich content of optical technologies ranging from the latest results in lighting and illumination engineering, the use of optical approaches in information sciences and optical communications to the latest developments in optical technologies for use in biomedical applications and clinical studies.
The meeting will include two collocated workshops. The first workshop (the week prior to the conference) will focus on fundamental science topics, while the second workshop (the week after the conference) will feature the more applied content areas. The conference will be organized with related content on either end of the week to facilitate participation in both the conference and a workshop depending on your area of interest.
