The recently founded Brazilian Photonics Society, SBFoton, proudly invites the optics and photonics community to attend its first annual meeting, the SBFoton International Optics and Photonics Conference, to be held at Hotel Majestic Convention Center from October 8-10 in Águas de Lindoia, a resort destination famous for its water springs and rural tourism, located not far from the city of Campinas in the State of São Paulo. The proposed format for the event is a conference with peer-reviewed paper sessions, plenary sessions, invited speakers, tutorial speakers, short courses and panels. It will also have a Exhibit Hall.

SBFoton 2018, under the theme "Gathering All”, is technically supported by IEEE Photonics Society and is the first specific conference for Photonics and related technologies in Brazil. It is the first specific conference for Photonics and related technologies in Brazil. It ranges from optical communication systems and devices; industrial applications (lasers, optics, coatings, materials processing); biophotonics (biomedical and biophysics); optical sensors and sensing systems; automotive, aviation and agricultural applications; optoelectronic materials and devices; nanophotonics and plasmonics; integrated photonics; color and science vision; and related areas.

The forum is an excellent opportunity for scientists, professors, students, engineers, industry managers and technical leaders to come together and share their expertise, discoveries, and excitement in the most fast-growing and impacting areas of human technical development. It is expected that the high-quality science and comprehensive programming should make SBFoton´2018 the very best opportunity for discussing present and future trends of this exciting branch of science, technology and innovation.
