The European Optical Society (EOS) will return to Berlin 26-30 September 2016, on the 25th Anniversary of the EOS. Germany, with a long tradition in optics and photonics, and Berlin, with its many research institutes and companies, serves as an ideal place for the EOS Bi-Annual Meeting. We are very happy to once again enjoy the excellent conference facilities of the Germany’s leading Science- and Technology Park Berlin-Adlershof. The meeting will include tutorials for students, various topical meetings, workshops, Fellows ceremony, Award ceremonies, and an Industrial Exhibition.
