Welcome from the Conference Chair:
The 3rd Australian New Zealand Conference on Optics (ANZCOP) will take place in Queenstown, 4 December to 7 December 2017, following on from previous conferences in Adelaide, 2015, and Perth, 2013. ANZCOP 2017 incorporates the Australian Conference on Optics, Lasers and Spectroscopy (ACOLS) and the Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (ACOFT). ANZCOP 2017 is the third such conference, and is run under the auspices of the Australian Optical Society and the Dodd Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies. ANZCOP aims to bring together the Australian and New Zealand research community in Optical and Quantum Technologies which have been developed strongly in recent decades.
Optics and photonics research continues to be a dynamic and exciting field or research internationally and within Australasia where we have a diversity of both theoretical and experimental research groups working in the area. It can be used to ask and answer fundamental questions about quantum mechanics and atomic physics and to probe chemical reactions, to make new types of chemical and environmental sensors, new biological sensors and medical diagnostics and devices, better computers and communications systems, better fundamental standards and metrology, and even to measure elusive ripples in the curvature of space-time.
I warmly invite you to attend ANZCOP 2017 held in Queenstown, New Zealand from Monday 4 December to Thursday 7 December. ANZCOP 2017 will include a wide variety of plenary talks, including the Advanced LIGO project and the latest developments in bio-photonics, and a plenary by the 2017 Frew Fellow: Professor Albert Polman FOM Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Please join us in Queenstown for ANZCOP 2017.
Griffith University and SABEL Labs welcome you to the 12th Biennial conference on the Engineering of Sport on behalf of the International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA) in Brisbane, Australia from 26 to 29 March 2018 together with Australian Sports Technologies Network.
Today more than ever engineering and technology make valuable contributions to the the way we play, watch and compete in sport. This conference brings world leading researchers, sports professionals and industry organisations, together, in one place and on the eve of the Commonwealth Games.
The International Conference BIOMDLORE is focused on the issues of biomedical engineering, biomechanics, gait and posture, orthopedics and traumatology, assistive technologies, rehabilitation, medical diagnostics, biosignal processing, mathematical modeling.
BIOMDLORE 2018 will be held on June 28-30, 2018 in Bialystok, Poland.
Bialystok is the largest city in north-eastern Poland, situated in the Podlaska Lowlands. The city is the administrative, commercial, scientific and cultural centre of this part of Poland which, because of its exceptional ecological value, is called the Green Lungs of Poland. The location of the city, in a clean ecological region that is full of tourist attractions and a well-developed infrastructure, makes Bialystok and its surroundings an attractive place to live, relax and to develop tourism.
ICEM18, the eighteenth International Conference of experimental Mechanics organized under the auspices of the European Society for Experimental Mechanics (EuraSEM) in July 1-5, 2018, in Brussels- Belgium, will bring a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the(se) latest exciting developments in the field of experimental mechanics. A unique opportunity to meet and interact with renowned international scientists and experts from academia and industry. It is the aim of the conference to provide a forum for discussion, exchange of new ideas, for the establishment of new friendships and collaborations and for the dissemination of recent acquired knowledge in an area of utmost scientific and technological importance.
Besides, the technical program, I hope you will also enjoy the city of Brussel, the capital of Belgium and of Europe. Brussels - a cosmopolitan city, easy to reach and famous for its Grand-Place, its Atomium, its Manneken-Pis, its beers, waffles and chocolates - is a beautiful city worth to explore and discover.
On behalf of the organizing committee and of the European society of Experimental Mechanics, I have the pleasure to invite to ICEM18 in Brussels. Thanks to your presence ICEM18 will be an unforgettable and rewarding gathering both from scientific, social and entertainment points of view.
We look forward to welcoming you to Brussels in July 2018.
