International School for Young Scientists

Advanced Photonic Materials


The International School for Young Scientists “Advanced Photonic Materials” (APM’2018) will take place on 7-8 June 2018 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The International School for Young Scientists “Advanced Photonic Materials” (APM’2018) is one of the events of the program of The II International Congress "Lasers and Photonics" organized by ITMO University. Registration to the APM’2018 School includes admission to the scientific program of all the events of the Congress "Lasers and Photonics" 2018.

The APM’2018 is focused on advanced optical activated materials and technologies, their characterization and applications in photonics. The technical program of the symposium includes the lectures of leading scientists in the field of materials for photonics.

The APM’2018 school will take place during the White Nights and will be held at the ITMO University campus in Vasilievsky Island, in the historic centre of the city, a walking distance away from the Hermitage museum and St. Isaac’s Cathedral.
