Conference Overview

The European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the XI European Quantum Electronics Conference (CLEO®/Europe-EQEC) is the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers organized in Europe in 2009.

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2009 is integrated into the world’s largest trade fair on laser technology, LASER. World of Photonics 2009, and will be collocated with a number of smaller specialist conferences including the European Conference on Biomedical Optics, the WLT conference on Lasers in Manufacturing, the DGLM congress on Medical Laser Applications, a SPIE conference on Optical Metrology and the Annual Meeting of the European Optical Society.

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC therefore provides European researchers and students in photonics, laser science and quantum optics a unique opportunity for learning, networking and business. CLEO®/Europe 2009 will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics sectors including materials, device development, systems engineering, fabrication and applications. EQEC features the fundamentals of quantum and atom optics, quantum information, cold atoms and molecules, basic research in lasers and spectroscopy, nonlinear and ultra-fast optics and dynamics, instabilities and patterns.

Five topical symposia will be held jointly organized by CLEO®/Europe and EQEC. Each symposium is dedicated to a particularly important topical development with the symposia topics for 2009 being: Large Scale Photonic Integration; Quantum States Of Light On Demand: Concepts to Applications; Laser Tweezers And Light Matter Interactions; Terahertz sources and applications; Optics beyond the Rayleigh resolution limit. These symposia promise to be a conference highlight.

The paper submission deadline is Monday 26 January 2009, and the registration deadline is provisionally scheduled for Monday 4 May 2009. Please note that registration for CLEO®/Europe-EQEC provides access to all technical sessions, the LASER. World of Photonics 2009 exhibit, and to all co-located conferences held under the World of Photonics Congress 2009 banner.


New for 2009: World of Photonics Joint Sessions

The World of Photonics Congress groups together a large number of general and topical meetings covering all topics relevant to the development of modern laser and photonic science and technology. For 2009, a series of special joint sessions are being especially coordinated in order to highlight topics at the interface of the thematic areas covered by the participating conferences, with the topics covered including emerging areas in biophotonics, fundamentals and modeling of materials processing with lasers, Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers and metrology of optical components. Joint sessions are especially marked in the calls and programs.

In 2009, CLEO®/Europe will be holding World of Photonics Joint Sessions with the European Conference on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) on Hot & Emerging Topics in Biophotonics; and with WLT and the Lasers in Manucfaturing (LIM) Conference with a joint Tech Focus Session on Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers: Concepts to Applications and a common session on Fundamentals of Materials Processing.
