Optics and the Brain
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
Optics offers a unique toolkit for multiscale imaging and manipulating the living and intact brain. New strategies provide optical measures of neural function and tools such as optogenetics enables the control of cellular function with light. Novel methods also enable unraveling the molecular, genetic, structural and connective properties of the nervous system from super-resolution to whole organism scales. By bringing together an international group of leading engineers, optical and medical scientists, biologists, chemists, neuroscientists and physicians, the meeting reflects this topic’s highly interdisciplinary area of research. This conference will bring together researchers working in all aspects of optics in the brain in both model systems and humans and will serve as a forum for discussion of existing and emerging techniques as well as future directions capable of shedding new light on the healthy and diseased brain.

Optical Manipulation and Its Applications
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
This meeting covers the whole range of optical manipulation technologies currently being developed for studies in biophysics, single molecule, single cell and tissue level analysis, optical manipulation of chemical processes in organisms, lab-on-a-chip development, optomechanical cooling, environmental monitoring and theoretical underpinnings. Technologies to be considered include optical tweezers and associated techniques, photo activated materials, optogenetics, light-activated drugs and probes, and microfluidics. In this way, we will try and capture synergies between different optical manipulation technologies with a view to encouraging discussion between different user groups and the development of new hybrid techniques.

OSA Imaging and Applied Optics Congress
19 Jul 2021 - 23 Jul 2021 • Vancouver, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
The OSA Imaging and Applied Optics Congress and OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress will be presented together for the first time. 10 topical meetings and a combined exhibition will provide enhanced opportunities to learn and network with a significantly larger community of scientists – coming together for one week-long event experience. OSA’s Imaging and Applied Optics Congress brings together academics, industrial, and defense research perspectives to provide a comprehensive view of the latest developments in imaging and applied optical sciences.

OSA Advanced Photonics Congress
26 Jul 2021 - 29 Jul 2021 • Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
The OSA Advanced Photonics Congress is a broad-spectrum, in-depth event comprised of five topical meetings that primarily cover the latest advancements in optical materials, optical signal processing, optical communications, and integrated optics. One important topic intersects many of the topical meetings in the congress: the building blocks of quantum science and engineering that will provide for future quantum information processing and quantum-enabled fiber optic networks. Another hot topic is artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML): how they are used in optical design and optical networks, including how photonics can help implement and boost performance of machine-learning techniques. Other major topics include 5G, switching, free-space communications and terahertz technologies.

OSA Optical Interference Coatings
19 Jun 2022 - 24 Jun 2022 • Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
Held every three years, the OIC conference has served for the past four decades as the premier conference on the topic of optical interference coatings. Scientists, researchers, engineers and students from all around the world attend to present, learn, and exchange ideas about the latest advancements in the field. OIC 2019 will cover all aspects of optical coatings, including fundamental research on coating design theory, materials, deposition methods, characterization technologies, and applications in electronic displays, optical communication, high power and ultra-fast lasers, sensing, solar cells, low-emissivity coatings, optical instruments, and space.
