PHOTOPTICS 2018 will be held in conjunction with VISIGRAPP 2018 and ICORES 2018.
Registration to PHOTOPTICS allows free access to the VISIGRAPP and ICORES conferences (as a non-speaker).

Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, from medical sciences to space exploration, telecommunications, information processing and numerous industrial and military applications of all kinds.
This 6th edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature 3 different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects. Researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in any of these fields are welcome to join us in Funchal, Madeira and present their work on new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, as well as general survey papers indicating future directions.
