May 15, 2009--The OPTOmism conference and exhibition, to be held May 18-20, 2009 in Santa Clara, CA, will focus on the growing role that photonics is playing in global efforts to "live green" (see OPTOmism to emphasize 'green' growth and OPTOmism to explore "green photonics" in detail). The conference includes a one-day Executive & Investor Forum and a two-day Technical Conference.
OPTOmism is not just about the future of photonics, but about the future of our planet and how photonics will support a "green" lifestyle. At OPTOmism, you will have the opportunity to speak to senior industry executives, researchers, engineers, and investors as well as have an opportunity to examine many of these technologies, explore their business implications, and review technology roadmaps.
Dr. Steven Chu (schedule permitting; see Nobel Prize winner & laser physicist Steven Chu named Obama's energy secretary) and Dr. Arno Penzias, both Nobel Laureates for physics, will be plenary speakers at the OPTOmism 2009 conference and exhibition (see Nobel Laureates to speak at OPTOmism 2009).
