Future of Ultrashort Pulses Sep 18 - 18 2015 Description:
The goal of this series of workshops is the bring together the leaders and young researchers in the ultrafast and attosecond communities to share our progress and goals towards the next generation of sources and their application to fundamental science. How will the pioneering experiments in the synthesis of multi-octave light transients be continued and expanded? How can the new generation of broadband parametric amplifiers with unprecedented combinations of average and peak power contribute, and what are the technical challenges in the way? We hope to bring together the community to discuss the work to be done, and to share our progress as it unfolds with a trilogy of annual workshops, as follows: 2015: OPCPA and enabling technologies for the next generation of femtosecond science 2016: Generation and control of lightwave transients 2017: Applications of lightwave transients to condensed matter physics and beyond
IONS Valencia 2015 Sep 24 - 26 2015 Description:
The International OSA Network of Students (IONS) is a program where student chapters can organize meetings between other chapter spreading its technical and professional developments. This year a group of Iberian chapters have joined to organize an IONS held in Valencia from 24-26 September. This conference is open to PhD and graduate students studying all fields that cover optics and photonics. Registration is free of charge.

Technical Conference
IONS KOALA 2015 Nov 23 - 27 2015 Description:
IONS KOALA is the Conference on Optics, Atoms and Laser Applications (KOALA) held annually in Australia and New Zealand as well as an International OSA Network of Students (IONS) conference sponsored by The Optical Society (OSA). With the support of many fantastic organisations, our goal is to bring together a large groups of Honours, Masters and PhD students currently conducting research in any field of optics, atoms and laser applications in New Zealand, Australia and the world! IONS KOALA is designed to allow students to discuss their research whilst providing them with a chance to network with their peers who are working in various universities across a variety of fields. Our aim is that students gain a fresh perspective as well as the opportunity to learn about exciting research being conducted. Students will also get the chance to develop valuable communication skills through presenting their research to their peers working in a variety of fields. Registration fees are kept as low as possible in keeping with KOALA’s aim of providing an open and positive environment for students at all levels to present and discuss their research.
Technical Conference
