Call for Papers - 3rd International Conference on Photonics, Optics and Laser Technology

Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, from medical sciences to space exploration, telecommunications, information processing and inumerous industrial and military applications of all kinds. This 3rd edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature 3 different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects. Researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in any of these fields are welcome to join us in Lisbon and present their work on new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, as well as general survey papers indicating future directions.
