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.

Rector of ITMO University

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Program committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to Saint Petersburg and the 2nd International Congress “Lasers and Photonics”.

The Congress 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. We strongly believe that it will provide an excellent forum for researchers and engineers to exchange ideas and findings.

The technical program will cover a wide range of topics focused on different areas of laser sciences, new optical materials and industrial technologies, and address recent advancement in these areas.
We hope that two summer schools: “Advanced Photonic Materials” and “Nanophotonics and Metamaterials” will definitely give young researchers, the opportunity to explore new areas of research, and enhance their current knowledge of the scope of photonic sciences.

I would like to thank all members of the Program Committee for having contributed to the success of this meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg.

Program Committee Chair
