OSA Laser Congress underway this week

The all-virtual, web conference format OSA Laser Congress takes place this week,  13 – 16 October 2020. Key topics will be the next generation of laser-based manufacturing technologies and the history and future of solid state lasers

Plenary speaker Jan Kleinert, Research Director at Electro-Scientific Industries (ESI), a division of MKS Instruments, Inc., USA, will share latest innovations in laser based manufacturing technologies in his talk titled “From µs to fs, kHz to GHz: laser micromachining in the microelectronics industry.” Understanding the underlying highly nonlinear laser material interaction dynamics is key to keeping pace with faster, better and cheaper technologies.

“A Journey through 60 Years of Solid State Lasers” is the featured topic of the plenary talk by Peter F. Moulton, senior staff, Laser Applications and Applications Group at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Lexington, MA, USA. Solid state lasers have achieved a dominant role in both scientific and industrial applications. Moulton will review 60 years of laser development and future applications.

The OSA Laser Congress plenary program is scheduled for Tuesday, 13 October, 08:00 – 10:00 EDT.

CES 2021 in January to be virtual only

The Consumer Electronics Show, which aimed to be the first big tech event of 2021, will not be held in-person.

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) confirmed that CES 2021 – January 6-9, 2021 will be an all-digital experience.

"Amid the pandemic and growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, it's just not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Technology helps us all work, learn and connect during the pandemic – and that innovation will also help us reimagine CES 2021 and bring together the tech community in a meaningful way. By shifting to an all-digital platform for 2021, we can deliver a unique experience that helps our exhibitors connect with existing and new audiences."

2020 OSA Imaging and Applied Optics Congress, 23 – 26 June

The 2020 OSA Imaging and Applied Optics Congress and the co-located OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress will be virtual events this year presented 22 – 26 June. Key topics will include spectroscopic sensing by laser techniques, new sensing approaches to spectroscopic and material-based gas sensors, images of a black hole and design strategies for sensor array cameras.

  • In his talk titled “Laser Spectroscopic Sensing in Environmental, Ecological and Biomedical Research,” Sensing Congress plenary speaker Sune Svanberg, professor at South China Normal University, Guangzhou, China will discuss how these laser techniques and non-intrusive monitoring are being applied to areas strongly impacting human daily life. 
  • Sensing Congress plenary speaker Radislav Potyrailo, principal scientist at GE Research, USA will analyze capabilities of natural and fabricated photonic three-dimensional nanostructures as sensors for detection of different gases. His talk titled “Journey from Natural to Fabricated Gas Sensing Photonic Nanostructures: Unexpected Discoveries and Societal Impact” will highlight performance advances in detection of multiple gases with specific nanostructure designs.
  • Techniques developed by the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration to photograph a black hole will be the focus of the Imaging Congress plenary with speaker Katie Bouman, assistant professor at California Institute of Technology, USA. Bouman’s talk titled “Capturing the First Picture of a Black Hole and Beyond,” will describe how data from the Event Horizon Telescope’s observations of a black hole were calibrated and imaged, and future developments with telescope arrays.
  • David Brady, professor at Duke University, USA will review design strategies for heterogeneous sensor array cameras and analyze system performance for various recent designs in his Imaging Congress plenary talk titled “Defining the Digital Camera.” The camera consists of a variety of sensor resources, potentially including lens and sensor arrays with various forms of active illumination and 3D sensing.

The all-virtual 2020 OSA Optical Sensors and Sensing Congress, 22 – 25 June, comprised of five topical meetings, features the latest optical-based sensor advances as the market continues to expand and sensor technology becomes more sophisticated. Conference registration is free for all participants and currently open. You must register in advance to receive the web link to access the conference.

IEEE Women In Engineering Int Leadership Conference - May 22-23

IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, today unveiled the conference agenda for the 2017 IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference (IEEE WIE ILC). Senior science and technology professionals are invited to come and exchange ideas, creating a community that fuels innovation and offers support to women and men who strive to Lead Beyond. Join us at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California on 22 – 23 May 2017 to collaborate and share.  



Attendees should register by April 4 to receive Early Bird rates. To register for the IEEE WIE ILC, visithttp://bit.ly/WIERegisterPR.

Leading speakers will discuss key strategies in these main categories: leadership, entrepreneurship, disruptive technology, innovation and empowerment. Keynote speakers include Microsoft EVP Business Development, Peggy Johnson; Intel Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Danielle Brown; DARPA Acting Deputy Director, Stefanie Tompkins; Harvey Mudd College President, Maria Klawe; and Ellevest CEO, Sallie Krawcheck. View the full agenda to meet all the speakers.

“Reflecting on previous IEEE WIE ILC events, my team and I used feedback from attendees to create a truly dynamic program,” said Nita Patel, founder and chair of the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference. “Striving to build upon their careers, attendees will experience new, in depth, hands-on workshops designed to boost learning, networking and collaboration, for a greater peer discussion experience, and problem solving setting. Our goal is for IEEE WIE ILC to be a place professionals meet and share strategies, so women find new ways to Lead Beyond.”

The 2017 IEEE WIE ILC delivers the networking, educational opportunities and tips even before the live conference begins.

Join our #WIEWednesdays Pre-Conference Virtual TracksMeet speakers while they share their experiences and strategies for success. Register for future tracks: 29 March 2017, 19 April 2017 and 10 May 2017, and watch past sessions on our YouTube Playlist.

Start-Up Pitch Competition: Hosted by our partners, VMWare and Women Who Code, IEEE invites women run startups to submit their company pitch. Six start-ups will be selected to showcase their brand to an audience of potential investors, partners and customers.
