Great success for EOSAM 2023 !

EOSAM 2023 was held in the beautiful city of Dijon France, 11-15 September, at the congress center. It was organized this year with the French Optical Society (SFO) that is one of the seventeen national optical societies (NOS) of the European Optical Society (EOS). We worked together to ensure a meeting with the highest quality and novel research results in different fields of optics.

Thus, nine topical optical meetings, four focused sessions (on selected hot topics deemed to be of special interest to conference attendees), EU Project Sessions, Early Stage Researcher Sessions, and sessions on the industrial mastering of optical technologies and systems were scheduled in parallel in large rooms or the big auditorium to fit our over 500 attendees. The exhibition and industrial program fostered relations between science and industry. All attendees took benefit of the lunch time, the lunch included in the registration made sure all attendees stayed in same location, for a good and efficient networking. After all, EOSAM is the platform for the European optics and photonics community to meet!

A lot of PhD level students attended the conference, over 30% of the attendees were in fact students. Master-level students were also given a chance to come and join the tutorials on Monday. Ten tutorial speakers took the stage before the official opening of the conference on Tuesday: Sébastien Bidault, Julien Charton, Sara Ducci, John M. Dudley, Oliver Fähnle, Philippe Grelu, Sandrine Lévêque-Fort, Rüdiger Paschotta, Roozbeh Shokri, Antoine Dubrouil.

The exhibition involved 20 companies, exhibiting from Tuesday to Thursday. Common for all coffee and lunch breaks was a nice buzzing sound of people excitedly exchanging ideas, information and contacts. Around 90 posters were presented on Wednesday and Thursday, same posters kept on poster boards both days to allow sufficient time for discussions.

EOSAM included a high-level program, with six exceptional plenary speakers and two plenary award speakers:

Thomas Ebbesen, Ursula Keller, Fabio Sciarrino, Valentina Emiliani, Laura Na Liu, Jean-Pierre Wolf.
