19th Annual Symposium of the IEEE Photonics Benelux Chapter

3rd & 4th November 2014
Enschede, The Netherlands

Welcome to the website of the 19th Annual Symposium of the IEEE Photonics Benelux Chapter, which is organized by the Optical Sciences Group of the MESA+ Institute at University of Twente (UT).

This year the symposium takes place on a Monday afternoon and evening and a Tuesday full day. The symposium is a great way to explore what is happening in photonics in the Benelux.

Besides the scientific activities, we would also like to draw your attention to the social and networking opportunities. After the opening session on Monday, there will be a dinner, followed by invited talks and a poster session with drinks and snacks. On Tuesday there will be a mix of invited and contributed talks and a lunch with a second poster session.

A list of the invited speakers will be realized soon.

The organising committee recommends two hotels at walking distance from the conference venue. We strongly advice to book a room before the 5th of October, because we have pre-blocked rooms. See Venue and Travel Information

On behalf of the conference organizing committee, I welcome you to the symposium in the city of Enschede, The Netherlands.
