OPAL 2018 will incorporate the following three symposiums covering a broaden range in optics, photonics and lasers, and provide an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and present latest advancements in these areas. The OPAL 2018 will be organized by IFSA. Media partner - journal Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).

The purpose of OPAL’ 2018 is to bring together leading international researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on any of the optical related technologies. The conference will offer plenary and invited talks, contributed oral and poster presentations, special sessions, tutorials, and exhibitions of commercial products. Social and cultural events will also take place to foster networking among the participants in a friendly manner.

We trust that you will find OPAL' 2018 conference professionally rewarding and stimulating as well as enjoyable. Welcome to OPAL' 2018 !​
