Adobe Experience ManagerLASER World of Photonics: The place to be in May noemail@noemail.orgConard Holton<br /><br />What is held biennially, has been around 40 years, and ranks as one of the biggest and most important shows in the global photonics industry? The answer of course is<a href="" target="_blank"> LASER World of Photonics</a>, the trade fair organized by Messe Munich International and held at the Munich fairgrounds from May 13-16. The <a href="" target="_blank">World of Photonics Congress</a>, which is the largest European technical and scientific conference on photonics, is co-located and runs from May 12-16.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="213" src="" width="320" /></a></div><br />This year the exhibition should attract 28,000 visitors and 1,100 exhibitors, with over 50% of those international. The focus will be on lasers and laser systems for manufacturing, lighting and energy, imaging, optical measurement, and biophotonics and medical technology.<br /><br />The technical and scientific Congress is expected to attract about 5,000 participants, and comprises five meetings:<br />- <a href="" target="_blank">CLEO/Europe-EQEC</a>, organized by the European Physical Society and sponsored by its Quantum Electronics and Optics Division, OSA, and IEEE Photonics Society<br />&nbsp;- <a href="" target="_blank">Optofluidics, Manufacturing of Optical Components, and Advanced Optomechanical Engineering</a>, organized by the European Optical Society<br />- <a href="" target="_blank">LiM - Lasers in Manufacturing (LiM)</a>, organized by the Scientific Laser Society (WLT); <br />-<a href="" target="_blank"> European Conference on Biomedical Optics (ECBO)</a>, organized by the OSA and SPIE; In conjunction with ECBO, the annual conference of the Head and Neck Optical Diagnostics Society (HNODS) will also be held.<br />- <a href="" target="_blank">Optical Metrology</a>, organized by SPIE Europe<br /><br />In addition to the Congress, forums on the exhibition floor will be the scene of numerous Application Panels, which are divided into three general topic areas: Biophotonics and Medical Engineering, Lasers and Laser Systems for Production Engineering, and Optical Technologies. The full list of Application Panels is<a href="" target="_blank"> available HERE</a>.<br /><br />We'll have more on the exhibition and Congress online and in the May issue of <a href="" target="_blank">Laser Focus World</a>. &nbsp;For a more complete preview of LASER and the Congress, <a href="" target="_blank">click HERE</a>.<br /><br />See you at the fair.<br /><br />, 500
