he EOSAM2014 will be held from September 16 to 19 in Berlin Adlershof. The General Chairs are Paul Urbach, Delft University of Technology

(NL) and Seppo Honkanen, University of Eastern Finland (FI).

The Local Scientific Chair will be Rainer Schuhmann, Berliner Glas KGaA (DE). The practical organisation is being coordinated by Elina Koistinen ( from the EOS support company, EOS Oy, in Joensuu. Updated information on the conference programme, the exhibition, and housing and registration details are available from The opening talk will be given by the deputy head of the EU photonics unit, Dr Ronan Burgess, who will speak about photonics in Horizon2020. Other plenary speakers include: Jeremy Baumberg from the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory, Bert Offrein from IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, and Dr H. Philip Stahl, president of SPIE. The second call for papers has been sent out, with an extended deadline of 30 June. Papers should be submitted through the web address above. As with previous EOSAMs, there will be a session on ‘Grand challenges of photonics’, which will feature the following four talks: Tobias Kippenberg from the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, who will speak on the mechanical properties of light; Ferenc Krausz from the Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik in Germany, whose talk is on attosecond photonics; Aristide Dogariu from CREOL at the University of Central Florida, USA, who will speak on electromagnetic forces in complex fields; and Markus Weber from Carl

EOS at Laser World of Photonics 2015

From 21 to 25 June 2015 Messe München will host the next Laser World of Photonics Congress. EOS will take part in the organisation together with other societies including EPS, IEEE, OSA and SPIE. The societies organise several conferences in parallel and attendees that

have registered for one of the conferences will get free access to all the other conferences as well as to Laser World of Photonics. So this is surely an event that is worthwhile attending for those from both the photonics scientific community and from the photonics industry.

EOS will be expanding its

involvement with Laser World of Photonics and is planning to organise four conferences: EOS conference on manufacturing and testing of optical components (EOSMTOC); EOS conference on optofluidics (EOSOF); EOS conference on optomechanical

engineering (EOSOME); and EOS conference on light engineering (EOSLE).


have been organised before for previous Laser World of Photonics. The EOSOME and EOSLE conference will be new to the 2015 event.

Professor Patricia Segonds (CNRS, France), has organised on behalf of the EOS a day of lectures related to the TOMs aimed at newcomers to the field. For every TOM a lecture of 1.5 hours is given by a leading expert in the field about the main topic of the TOM. The exceptions are the topics of TOM 1 and TOM2, which will be taught in a single tutorial and TOM 3 about which two lectures will be given namely on optical fabrication and the use of aspheres in optical design, respectively. This day is free for all participants of EOSAM2014 and will be attractive in particular for students. Those who would like to attend the lectures have to register for this additional event on the website. The EOS is very grateful to the Physikalisch-

Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the German Metrology Institute, and in particular to Dr. Frank Scholze of PTB, for hosting this day of tutorials in the PTB building in Adlershof. Last but not least, there will be several social and networking events during the EOSAM214, and a special cinematic event is planned in a studio in Berlin on the evening of Friday, 19 September. So there are many reasons to go to Berlin for the week of 16 September.

Paul Urbach President of the EOS.
