About Congress

Vladimir Vasilyev

Dear friends!

On behalf of the Advisory Committee of the International Congress “Lasers and Photonics” I am honored to invite you to St. Petersburg. Photonics is a fascinating interdisciplinary area of research which has already transformed the society in which we live and will be even more important for the future. The Congress will be hosted by ITMO University which is known for its academic and research activities based on the integration of photonic, digital and bio-technologies. We are delighted that you would join us in the Congress and wish you fruitful and inspiring discussions. We hope also all of you can find new friends and enjoy the sights in St. Petersburg.

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Program committee, I am delighted to invite you to join us at the II International Congress “Lasers and Photonics”.

The congress is designed to provide a forum for international researchers and engineers working in the area of laser physics and photonics. It unites three major international conferences: 18th “Laser Optics”, “Photonic Colloidal Nanostructures: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications” and “Days on Diffraction”, and 13th International Symposium on Nanophotonics and Metamaterials.

The technical program is among the biggest ever, and covers topics from mathematical problems of optical sciences to breakthrough laser technologies, new optical materials and industrial applications. Students are especially welcome to attend! Two well-balanced, high-quality summer schools: “Advanced Photonic Materials” and “Nanophotonics and Metamaterials” will include intensive training courses with lectures and seminars given by top-level international scholars.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg.
