2019 Connecting people
with light
October, 7th — 9th IPEN, USP, São Paulo

The Brazilian Photonics Society, SBFoton, invites the optics and photonics community to attend its second annual meeting, the SBFoton International Optics and Photonics Conference, to be held from October 7th to 9th at the Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares, IPEN-CNEN/SP, in the city of São Paulo.

The proposed format of the Conference includes plenary sessions, invited speakers, peer-reviewed technical sessions (oral and poster presentations), panels, and an exhibit hall. SBFoton 2019, under the theme “Connecting People with Light”, is technically supported by the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) and The Optical Society (OSA), and is the specific conference for Photonics and related technologies in Brazil.
