The LAPHIA annual symposium is collocated and will run in parallel way with ETOP 2015 from 29 June to 3 July 2015 at Institut d'Optique d'Aquitaine in Talence - France.
The objectives of this LAPHIA symposium are to bring together the international specialists who work in the fields of photonics/laser/imaging, to present the actual state of the art, and to exchange their meanings on the evolution of the relevant technologies.
Once a year, the Cluster organizes an international symposium in Bordeaux. This key event is the opportunity to gather the global community, including researchers and industrials, around the three LAPHIA axes : laser, photonics and innovative imaging. This event is also an opportunity to highlight the work of women in optics with the "Women in Optics" workshop. Two talks about the physics and chemistry's Nobel price of 2014 will also be held.
The symposium will run from July 2 to July 3, 2015.
ETOP is a biennial conference that brings together educators from around the world to share information about the practice of teaching optics at all levels. The teaching of optics and photonics, critical fields at the core of today's world-wide technological infrastructure, must continually be upgraded and renewed in order to meet the growing demands of research, science and industry.
ETOP 2015 will run from June 29 to July 2, 2015.
