May 19-22 at the ITMO University an international optical seminar OS- 2014, dedicated to the development and trends of optical and optical information systems, was held.
The seminar was attended by more than 150 leading experts in the design of optical systems, young scientists and students, representatives of universities and industrial companies from Russia and foreign countries.
On the first day of the seminar, participants discussed new methods of design, construction and technological solutions in the field of optics. They also shared their experience in the development of optical systems. Plenary lectures were replaced by the poster session of companies and exhibition of scientific and technical literature issued by major publishers in St. Petersburg.
Event guests visited a number of workshops on the development of optical systems using specialized software. For students a meeting with Professor Adam Stick from the Warsaw University of Technology was organized. Professor Stick presented master educational program Optical Design, realized in collaboration with the ITMO University.
One of the seminar days (Astro-day) was devoted to the development of space optical systems. As a part of the program, the participants visited the Pulkovo Astronomical Laboratory, as well as a leading light engineering company of Northwest, the plant "OptoGaN".
On the final day, the participants summed up the results of the seminar, discussed the plan of events for the next year and agreed to continue cooperation in the field of design and educational activities.
