Technical Conference
IONS Campinas 2016 jul. 14 - 17 2016 Description:
The IONS® is a conference organized by students, for students. Expect a great environment to exchange knowledge and experiences on science, technology and chapter activities. You will be in contact with great students from different parts of the world, listen to talks given by great local and international researchers and have a great time in social and cultural events. The OSA Student Chapter at UNICAMP is now organizing its second IONS®, the third in South America. We scheduled four days of great professional development, network building and fun. The program we organized have students’s technical talks, chapter activities discussions, outreach activity, plenaries, a Physics in industry pannel, tourism both in Sao Paulo and Campinas and social events every night. You can check the detailed schedule on the Program page. The IONS® Campinas 2016 will be held just before the Sao Paulo School of Advanced Science on Nanophotonics (SPSAS Nanophotonics – July 17th to 29th), which will take place right here at UNICAMP in Campinas. This is going to be a two week school to which you are invited to participate (check their website for more details). Registration to the IONS® Campinas will be open from April 1st to June 1st. Traveling grants will be given, but only for those who register until May 1st. We hope that all the information needed is available in this website. Otherwise, feel free to contact us on: sc-unicamp@osachapter.org. We are looking forward to seeing you here! The IONS® Campinas 2016 committee.

II International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering oct. 10 - 14 2016 Description:
Starting from 10 till 14 October 2016 International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering YSF-2016 will bring together young scientists from a broad range of fields in the second largest and one of the most active cities of Ukraine, in Kharkiv, for fascinating lectures, workshops and social events. It will provide participants with a great opportunity to exchange and share their experiences and research results and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. Forum topics include Optics and Photonics, Computational and Experimental Electromagnetics, Biophysics, Medical Physics, Microwave and Terahertz Electronics, Geoscience and Remote Sensing, Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics, Nano- and Metamaterials, Solid State Radiophysics, Power Electronics & Industry Applications, Nuclear and Plasma Physics. YSF-2016 will help one to boost scientific knowledge, practice presentational skills, develop useful scientific links and, last but not least, to have fun! To contribute to the event, you need to prepare either an abstract or a forum paper manuscript (more details are avaliable here: http://ysc.org.ua/instruction.php) and present it at the YSF-2016 in a form of oral presentation.
Technical Conference
The 6th Annual World Congress of Nano Science & Technology-2016 oct. 26 - 28 2016 Description:
The 6th Annual World Congress of Nano Science and Technology-2016 (Nano S&T-2016) will be held in Singapore during October 26-28, 2016. It covers all frontier topics in advanced nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, applications of nanotechnology, nanomedicine and biomaterials, etc. The aim of the conference is to bring together leading scientists, researchers, engineers, practitioners, technology developers and policy makers from multidisciplinary research and application areas to exchange information on their latest research progress and innovation, to discuss the benefits of Nanotechnology and materials science in their research and development efforts to advance the networking, and collaborating between different academia, research and market leaders in the field. It provides an unprecedented opportunity and effective platform for institutions and industries to share ideas and discover innovation in the area of nanotechnology and develop new business opportunities.
Technical Conference
IONS KOALA 2016 nov. 27 - 02 2016 Description:
IONS KOALA 2016 is the 9th 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). IONS KOALA 2016 is being co-hosted by the Monash University OSA Student Chapter and the Swinburne University of Technology joint OSA/SPIE Student Chapter, and 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 Australia, New Zealand and the world KOALA encompasses a broad variety of topics within the field of optics and photonics. These include but are not limited to atomic, molecular and optical physics, quantum optics, spectroscopy, micro and nanofabrication, biomedical imaging, metrology, nonlinear optics and laser physics research. Most attendees are at the very beginning of their careers, so this is a great way to discover a wide range of possible directions within the world of optics and photonics! 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.
