Optics has a long and distinct tradition among physical sciences. Ever-present throughout human history, optical systems and phenomena have been subject of interest in all cultures and epochs, from the ancient times of geometrical optics, across the works of Alhazen, Kepler, Descartes, Newton, Huygens, Young, Fresnel, Poisson and many others, to the electromagnetic theory synthesis of Maxwell, culminating in the quantum mechanics revolution of the first half of the 20th century which has come to pave the way for modern laser and photonics technologies. Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, with an ever-increasing number of applications covering medical sciences (vision technologies, surgical instrumentation, medical imaging, drug delivery or cancer photothermal therapies), spatial exploration (telescopes, lenses, spectrometers), telecommunications (fiber optics), information processing (quantum computing), industry (from cutting, welding to precision metrology) and military-weaponry technology, to name but a few examples. Furthermore, laser and optical technology are in general essential to perform applied research in areas such as chemistry biology or medicine, providing fundamental analysis tools. The success of optical systems and technologies in high-end scientific research has also found its way into everyday consumer products such as printers, displays, discs, cameras, and eyeglasses, not to forget that optical fiber is crucial to telecommunications in general and internet in particular. This 11th edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature three different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects. Scientific researchers, engineers, and practitioners interested in any of these fields are welcome to join us and present their work on new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, as well as general survey papers indicating future directions. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published on the Proceedings of PHOTOPTICS, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and originality. Both full research and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Companies interested in presenting their products or methodologies or even researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference website.
