Research in Applications of Optics and Photonics is continuously evolving with remarkable and exciting recent developments in a variety of fields, all over the world. After the success of the first edition in 2011, the Portuguese Society for Research and Development of Optics and Photonics, SPOF, is organizing the II International Conference on Applications in Optics and Photonics, AOP2014, which will be held in picturesque city of Aveiro, Portugal, on May 26 to 30, 2014.
We are looking forward to welcome the optics and photonics community and our friends from all over the world.
Aveiro captures the essence of the perfect picture-book destination, light and color go hand-in-hand in this magnificent area: the unique moliceiro boats which slowly cross the waters of the salty lagoon, Ria de Aveiro, as if time stood still; the unmistakeable striped houses of Costa Nova beach, the wonderful Art Noveau buildings, the houses in the river bank with their doors and walls in thousands of vibrant colors and the bright sunset over the Salinas (salt pans).
Aveiro is one of the most charming destinations of Portugal for its network of canals crossing through the city, humpbacked bridges, high-prow colorful boats (moliceiros) and its calm urban atmosphere.
