About the Conference

In 2023, over 1,100 in-person and on-demand attendees representing more than 30 countries from around the globe, converged on Tacoma, Washington, USA for Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science. The conference will reconvene in 2024 in Denver, Colorado, USA.


The 2023 Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science Conference was held as an in-person event featuring hundreds of live contributed and invited talks with additional on-demand content available for online viewing. Archived recordings of in-person talks or prerecorded videos from remote presenters are available on-demand for registrants up to 90 days after the meeting.

Conference Themes

The Technical Conference is organized around three themes that leverage the intersection between science and applications — the end result is intended to illustrate the research within the technology. The themes provide opportunities for focused, deep-dives into the most compelling and promising technologies of tomorrow. Each theme includes an all-invited program of panel discussions and is anchored by a 45-minute talk offered by a visionary speaker. The 2023 theme program addresses:

Visionary Speakers

These speakers are individuals who come from within and beyond the optics and photonics community — each equipped to provide insight into cutting-edge advances related to the three conference themes.

Science & Industry Showcase

The technical content is complemented by the Science & Industry Showcase, an exhibition with leading optics companies, technology product demonstrations and industry-focused show floor programs. In addition, we expect upwards of 500 posters presented over multiple poster sessions.
