Program & Speakers

The Technical Conference

The meeting unites Optica (formerly OSA) and American Physical Society (APS) communities for quality, cutting-edge presentations, fascinating invited speakers and a variety of special events. 

Plenary, Invited and Contributed Talks

The conference chairs and subcommittee carefully curate a technical program that addresses the breadth and depth of the optics and photonics community. The meeting's structure is influenced by Optica technical divisions such as fabrication, design and instrumentation; optics in biology, medicine, vision and color; and information acquisition, processing and display.

Each year, the Laser Science subcommittee selects key topics to address. There are five topics in 2022:

Plenary, invited and contributed talks are organized based on these topical categories. The result is a comprehensive technical program from some of the world's leading scientists.

Visionary Speakers

In a time of technological disruption and evolution, when even things as familiar as vision, computers and automobiles seem to be on the edge of amazing reinvention, FiO LS brings forward true visionaries to speak about discoveries soon to come.

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