Optomechanical and Light Engineering: EOS organises two new conferences
EOS organises two new conferences at the World of Photonics Congress 2015
In addition to the already familiar conferences on Manufacturing and Testing of Optical Components (EOSMTOC) and Optofluidics (EOSOF), the European Optical Society EOS introduces two new conference topics in 2015: EOS Conference on Optomechanical Engineering (EOSOME) and EOS Conference on Light Engineering (EOSLE).
Since many years, EOS has been one of the partners organising conferences at the World of Photonics Congress. During the 2015 Congress, EOS will be holding four conferences: Manufacturing and Testing of Optical Components (for the 4th time), Optofluidics (for the 3rd time) and, as new topical fields, Optomechanical Engineering (EOSOME) and Light Engineering (EOSLE).
Optomechanical Engineering (EOSOME)
Putting focus on new developments in the field of optomechanical engineering, EOSOME will deal with computation in optomechanical systems design, environmental influences, and optomechanical components. The goal is to provide a unique opportunity for the exchange of information with renowned researchers, scientists, engineers and professionals from all around the world.
Light Engineering (EOSLE)
With EOS Past president, Paul Urbach (Delft University of Technology) chairing the EOS Conference on Light Engineering, the focus will be to explore new developments in the field of light engineering for a variety of applications, including solid state lighting and much more.
In addition to EOSOME and EOSLE, EOS will again hold the well-established conferences Manufacturing and Testing of Optical Components and Optofluidics.
Manufacturing and Testing of Optical Components (EOSMTOC)
Held for the 4th time at the World of Photonics Congress, EOSMTOC 2015 will cover optics fabrication and testing, ranging from micro to large-scale optics and from high value one-off to mass-produced components. Joint sessions with SPIE are also being planned. Conference chair is Klaus-Friedrich Beckstette (Carl Zeiss AG).
The EOS Conference on Optofluidics has been a success from the start, with participation from leaders in the optofluidics community from around the world. With Demetri Psaltis (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) as chair, the 3rd EOSOF will continue involving experts from the industrial and academic research sectors, and explore the latest developments in the field of optofluidics.
Call for papers for all four conferences are out.
Submit before 19 January 2015.

The European Optical Society (EOS) is the umbrella organisation for 22 national optical societies in Europe and serves as a joint forum for all individuals, companies, organisations and educational institutions, who recognise the opportunity and challenge that a common European base provides for the development of optics in its broadest sense. The purpose of EOS is to contribute to progress in optics and related sciences, and to promote their applications at the European and international levels, by bringing together individuals and legal entities involved in these disciplines and their applications.
