Summer School 2017 – “Complexity in Nonlinear Photonics”, Como, Italy


As part of the ongoing MULTIPLY Research and Training activites, we are happy to officially announce the confirmation of the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, “Complexity in Nonlinear Photonics”, to be held in the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, Villa del Grumello, Como, Italy, September 25-29, 2017.

The school is being organized by the MULTIPLY partners, University of Brescia, Italy, Novosibirsk State University, Russia, and the MULTIPLY co-ordinator, Aston University, UK.

The school will bring together experts in emerging photonic technologies and fundamental physics to share with young researchers their knowledge and interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and designing complex photonic systems. The areas covered by the school will include: complexity of optical communication systems, in particular topics such as the nonlinear Fourier transform and transmission over multimode fibres, complexity in quantum systems emulated in photonics (including optical computing), PT-symmetric systems, complexity of emerging novel materials and components like meta-surfaces and micro-resonators. Importantly, the complexity in bio-medical photonic applications will be also considered as a high priority topic.

The school will focus on comprehensive review talks from major figures in complementary areas of photonics. The invited speakers will deliver one hour lectures over 5 days. We aim to select up to 30 participants from the pool of most vibrant PhD students and postdocs, with a special focus on Marie Curie Fellows as future leaders of European photonics science and industry.
