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.

2016 International conference of Optics & Photonics Taiwan dez 03 - 05 2016 Description:
Optics & Photonics Taiwan, the International Conference (OPTIC 2016) is the largest annual conference on optics and photonics in Taiwan. This year, OPTIC 2016 will be hosted by National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech) in Taipei, Taiwan, from December 3 to December 5. With an expected attendance of more than 1500 people from academia, government and industry, OPTIC 2016 will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and present latest advancements in optics and photonics. OPTIC 2016 incorporates the following eleven symposiums covering an broaden range in optics and photonics. The conference is one of the most valuable conferences in optics and photonics for participants. 1.Nanophotonic Materials and Devices 2. Optical Waveguides and Communications 3. Quantum Electronics 4. Holography and Information Processing 5. Optical Design and Testing 6. Biophotonics 7. Display Technology 8. Solid State Lighting 9. Photovoltaic Technology 10. Thin-Film Technology and Optical Engineering 11. Organic Optoelectronics and Integrated Photonics with the combination of these eleven symposiums, OPTIC 2016 will be one of the most valuable conferences on optics/photonics for all participants from around the globe.
Technical Conference
International Conference on Allied Technologies in Electrical & Communication systems dez 07 - 09 2016 Description:
The purpose of this conference is to provide a vibrant platform for a wide cross section of working professionals to interact and exchange useful ideas, and giving guidelines on technical, research & developments. The conference will further consist of plenary / invited talks and contributed papers on various focusing areas in emerging electronics & electrical engineering (optical domain). There will be dedicated poster sessions where Ph.D/ M.Tech. students will have an opportunity to present their work to an international panel of experts and get feedback on their research ideas / results
Technical Conference
Laser Ignition Conference jun 20 - 23 2017 Description:
Combining regenerative and classical fossil energy sources is a major issue to be addressed in order to find solutions to the challenges of modern societies with respect to technology advances and low carbon footprint at the same time. Fossil energy sources will remain on the tableau due to their energy density and the mobility of combustion engines for cars, power trains, aviation, space and cogeneration, but only an efficient and low fuel usage will allow those to contribute to a low carbon footprint mix of energy. Laser-based ignition is believed to be a major contributor to efficient fossil fuel usage and thus a lower carbon footprint of mankind due to the variability and shape-ability of laser pulses that replace the electric spark to ignite the gas-fuel mixture. But a number of technological challenges need to be proved before laser spark plugs can realistically be adopted. This is the 5th Conference that attempts to collate the latest developments in laser and laser technologies for the feasibility of laser ignition in practical combustion systems. The latest developments in non-laser ignition systems and studies that enhance our understanding of the ignition process will also be presented. Included in this conference will be guest lectures from leading authorities on ignition technologies.
