Call for Papers: CLEO®/Europe - EQEC 2017

Posted By Administration, Thursday 5 January 2017
Updated: Thursday 5 January 2017

The European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the European Quantum Electronics Conference will take place from Sunday 25 June to Thursday 29 June 2017 in Munich (ICM), Germany as part of the World of Photonics Congress and the Laser World of Photonics 2017, the world's leading laser trade fair.

The Congress will be the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics scientists and engineers organized in Europe in 2017.

A full list of topics and committees can be viewed on the conference website at  and we hope you will agree that the high quality of plenary, keynote, tutorial, invited speakers and short courses promises to make this conference unmissable!

The chairs invite you to come to Munich during June 25 - 29, 2017 and participate in Europe's most exciting photonics and quantum electronics event. The historical and cultural atmosphere of Munich in June also provides a perfect environment for scientific and professional networking and is a tremendous source of scientific inspiration.

Contributed papers can now be sent on line via

Please remember the deadline for the submissions: Thursday January 19, 2017, 23:59 CET.

Submissions should consist of a 35-word abstract and a single A4 page summary in pdf format.

Conference topics cover a very wide spectrum of technical areas including laser development, new optical materials, nonlinear optics and nonlinear dynamics, ultrafast phenomena, telecommunications technologies, atom and quantum optics, quantum information, precision metrology, fibre optics, optical sensing, photonic crystals, nanophotonics and metamaterials etc.  A particular highlight of the 2017 programme will be a series of special symposia surveying recent advances in the following emerging areas of: 

  • Free Electron Lasers and Applications
  • Advanced Microscopy and Nanoscopy
  • Photonics in Cancer Detection and Therapy
  • Optics of Topological Insulators
  • Perovskite Optoelectronics

More details can be found at

The conference is organised by the European Physical Society and its Quantum Electronics and Optics Division (QEOD), in cooperation with the IEEE Photonics Society and the Optical Society (OSA).

The CLEO®/Europe-EQEC conference series provides a unique European forum, offering informative reviews and discussing recent advances covering a wide spectrum of topics, from fundamental light-matter interactions and new sources of coherent light, to technology development, systems engineering and applications in industry and applied science.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Munich!
