23 March 2020 – 25 March 2020 Prague Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic
12 July 2020

This OSA Meeting has been postponed.

The OSA High-brightness and Light-driven Interactions Congress was not held as originally scheduled. The congress committee has expressed a preference to convene the meeting later this year, and OSA is currently exploring venues in Prague for the late November or early December time frame.

We continue to monitor health and travel advisories related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and commit to being responsive amidst changing conditions. We appreciate your patience in waiting for an announcement on future plans.
