The significant impact of COVID19 has placed impossible constraints on our community’s ability to join in our favourite meeting place of Munich, Germany. CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2021 will take place in virtual format on the scheduled dates from Monday 21 June to Friday 25 June 2021. The stakeholder societies and Messe Munich have plenty of experience and significant resources for making CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2021 a successful and exciting event at any circumstances. We believe the online conference format will allow authors to present timely their work whilst still providing many of the benefits of a face to face meeting. In addition, presentations will be more widely available, yielding a greater exposure of their work.

International conference to highlight new frontiers in lasers, photonics and optical science across a wide range of technical areas.

The CLEO®/Europe-EQEC conference series has a strong tradition as a comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers in Europe.

With technical co-sponsorship provided by the European Physical Society (EPS), the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) and the Optical Society (OSA), CLEO®/Europe reflects a strong international presence in the complementary research traditions of laser science, photonics and quantum electronics.

More specifically, CLEO®/Europe emphasizes applied physics, optical engineering and applications of photonics and laser technology whereas EQEC emphasizes basic research in laser physics, nonlinear optics and quantum optics.

CLEO®/Europe will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas including laser source development, materials, ultrafast science, fibre optics, nonlinear optics, terahertz sources, high-field physics, optical telecommunications, nanophotonics, biophotonics.

EQEC will feature the fundamentals of quantum optics, quantum information, atom optics, ultrafast optics, nonlinear phenomena and self-organization, plasmonics and metamaterials, fundamental nanooptics, theoretical and computational photonics.

This combination provides a unique forum to obtain informative overviews and discuss recent advances in a wide spectrum of topics, from fundamental light-matter interactions and new sources of coherent light to technology development, system engineering and applications in industry and applied science.
