About the Conference
The Optical Society (OSA), in partnership with the American Physical Society’s Division of Laser Science (DLS) present OSA Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science APS/DLS. The conference, which serves also as the OSA Annual Meeting, unites communities from both societies for comprehensive and current research in more than 30 optics and photonics topics and across the disciplines of physics, biology and chemistry. FIO + LS provides attendees from around the world with the opportunity to network, present, learn and connect. We hope to see you at the 2019 conference in September.
The Technical Conference is organized around four 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.
- Autonomous Systems
- Nanophotonics and Plasmonics
- Quantum Technologies
- Virtual Reality and Augmented Vision
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 four conference themes. The 2019 line up of Visionary Speakers will be introduced in spring 2019.
Scince & 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, poster sessions will be held in the exhibition, with a select number presented in electronic, media-rich formats.
