Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Europe and the European Quantum Electronics Conference

Sponsored by Optica

23 - 27 Jun 2019

Messe Munich, Munich, Germany

The CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 conference is Europe’s largest conference on photonics and related research fields.

CLEO®/Europe emphasizes applied physics, optical engineering and applications of photonics and laser technology, and will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas including laser source development, materials, ultrafast science, fibre optics, nonlinear optics, terahertz sources, high-field physics, optical telecommunications, nanophotonics, biophotonics.

EQEC emphasizes basic research in laser physics, nonlinear optics and quantum optics, and will feature the fundamentals of quantum optics, quantum information, atom optics, ultrafast optics, nonlinear phenomena and self-organization, plasmonics and metamaterials, fundamental nanooptics, theoretical and computational photonics.

This combination provides a unique forum to obtain informative overviews and discuss recent advances in a wide spectrum of topics, from fundamental light-matter interactions and new sources of coherent light to technology development, system engineering and applications in industry and applied science.

The program will also include plenary lectures by Michal Lipson from Columbia University on Silicon Photonics, and by Anton Zeilinger from the Austrian Academy of Sciences on Entanglement. The overall program is considerably larger than in previous years, with 8 keynote and 6 tutorial speakers, and over 80 invited talks within the different topics. Furthermore, the conference will feature 12 short courses, more joint symposia fostering interdisciplinarity and interaction with other fields.
