Optics & Photonics Congresses

Optics & Photonics Congresses

Optics & Photonics Congresses (OPCs) are clusters of new and established topical meetings in order to bring together leaders among communities within optics. Congresses are designed to retain the collegial settings of OSA topical meetings and provide richer experiences for networking, information sharing and discussion across the disciplines of optical science and engineering. They also offer opportunities for more special events including plenary sessions, symposia, short courses and joint exhibits. 

Now when you attend the topical meeting of your discipline you will not only have the opportunity to network with colleagues within your own field but you can also learn more about other fields.
