Northern Optics & Photonics 2015 (NOP 2015) will be arranged on 2-4 June 2015 near the city of Imatra (but in Lappeenranta region) in South-Eastern Finland, a 2.5 hour train trip from Helsinki. The conference venue is the spa resort Holiday Club Saimaa by the beautiful lake Saimaa with attractive free-time activities.
The conference is organized by Photonics Finland in conjunction with the Institute of Photonics (UEF, Joensuu), Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT, Lappeenranta) and sponsored by optics/photonics societies of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Baltic countries. Because of extensive growth of photonics industries in the Nordic and Baltic countries and the formation of dedicated industrial photonics clusters in many countries, NOP 2015 has a separate industrial program committee besides the academic one and contains parts devoted specially to optics and photonics industries. There will as well be an exhibition. The conference deals with all aspects of optics and photonics from basic research to manufacturing and applications. It contains plenary, invited, contributed, and poster presentations.
