An invitation to participate

Consider joining your peers at Optics + Optoelectronics in Prague next April

Prepare and present your latest research at the 2023 meeting


It is our pleasure to welcome your participation at SPIE 2023 Optics + Optoelectronics. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in person in Prague in 2023. The meeting offers multiple opportunities to advance your research. An excellent technical programme is being prepared and organized within two-tracks, Emerging Technologies and Research with Extreme Light Sources, with the following technologies represented:

• optical sensing
• holography
• metamaterials
• non-linear optics
• integrated optics
• photon-counting and quantum optics
• high energy/high intensity laser systems
• petawatt class lasers and ultrafast laser technologies
• radiation and particle sources driven by high-power lasers
• free electron laser sources
• plasma waves as radiation sources
• laser acceleration of charged particles
• x-ray optics

We are thrilled to announce that we are now offering the conference 'Smart Materials for Opto-Electronic Applications' to further round out our Emerging Technologies Track for the 2023 meeting.

This event is recognized as an important forum for science, government, and industry to access and share information on optical technologies. The event focuses specifically on the research aspects of optics and optoelectronics science and technology, with a special emphasis on the existing and upcoming European and international laser infrastructures.

The symposium features plenary sessions focusing on the current hot topics, fifteen conferences, and two workshops. The programme promises an exciting week, with excellent science and technology in a setting conducive to international interchange, networking, and exchanging ideas.

The diversity and breadth of cultural, scientific and economic capacities of Prague has established it as our host-city for the Optics+Optoelectronics meeting. It is home to the ELI Beamlines facility, the gateway to new regimes in fundamental physics by extreme light. The facility utilizes high-power, high-repetition-rate lasers for high-field physics experiments and for generation of high-intensity sources of radiation and particles. As an international laser user facility, it opens a new era of laser-based research, attracting the world’s best scientists to unique research opportunities.

We invite you to share the most recent developments and applications at SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics 2023. Join us for this exciting meeting in the beautiful city of Prague!
