World of Photonics Congress 2023: Program

Five scientific conferences with plenaries and joint sessions and a practice-oriented lecture program address all aspects of optical technologies.

To depict all aspects of optical technologies, the conferences at the World of Photonics Congress are oriented to the research sector’s close proximity to industry on the one hand and to photonics applications in the industrial and medical sectors on the other.

CLEO® / Europe – EQEC 2023

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2023 conference is Europe’s largest conference on photonics and related research fields. CLEO®/Europe will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas, EQEC, on the other hand, features the fundamentals of quantum optics. The program features plenary lectures, keynote and tutorial speakers, invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions within the different topics. Furthermore, the conference will feature 12 short courses and joint symposia.

CLEO® / Europe – EQEC 2023 was organized by the European Physical Society (EPS), OPTICA (formerly OSA) and the IEEE Photonics Society.

Lasers in Manufacturing (LiM 2023)

LiM focuses on the latest developments as well as future trends in the field of laser material processing including process engineering, system technology and process optimization. The conference consists of three sub-conferences—one for macro applications, one for micro applications, and one for additive manufacturing.

LiM was organized by the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT).
