The International OSA Network of Students (IONS) is a program that encourages student chapter members to organize and manage regional and online meetings that focus on technical and professional development content and networking.
Hosting an IONS event is a valuable (and fun) experience. In order to host a conference, you must have already attended one. Upcoming Conferences include:
IONS-NA 8 Montreal (25-27 May 2014)
IONS-15 Ankara (2-5 July 2014)
OSA support of IONS events includes:
OSA Student Members Gather in Sydney for IONS/KOALA Conference on Optics
