2019 Schawlow-Townes Symposium on Photonics
17 October 2019 - 9:30am to 5:30pm
55 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa ON K1N 9J2
Sylvain Charbonneau, Vice-President, Research at the University of Ottawa and Geneviève Tanguay, Vice-President, Emerging Technologies at the National Research Council of Canada, cordially invite you to the eighth edition of the Schawlow-Townes Symposium on Photonics. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet internationally renowned speakers.
This annual symposium brings to light the research and discoveries of photonics experts from Ottawa, across Canada and around the world.
Bridging the gap between theory, research and applied science, the Schawlow-Townes Symposium explores the science of light from all angles. It’s a gathering of the brightest minds in the field who, like the symposium’s namesakes, continually strive to push the boundaries of photonics.
