DoKDoK 2018 – Germany’s largest doctoral student conference on Optics and Photonics

The DoKDoK is a conference for doctoral (PhD) students in all areas of Optics and Photonics. The purpose is to help young researchers connect with each other, exchange knowledge, polish their conference presentation skills and discuss the ups and downs of academic life. DoKDoK is hosted by the Abbe School of Photonics (Friedrich Schiller University Jena) and is organized by a team of doctoral students of this graduate school.

DoKDoK 2018 will be held on September 17th -21st, 2018 in the “Ahorn Berghotel” in Friedrichroda, Thuringia. The modern conference hotel offers much space for scientific and personal communications among the participants. The region around Jena is an ideal place for this conference due to the strong presence of small, big and multinational companies in this field, pioneered by Ernst Abbe, Carl Zeiss and Otto Schott.

Every doctoral student, master student, or young post-doc working in optics is welcome to submit an abstract. Categories include ultrafast optics, non-linear optics, biophotonics, spectroscopy, microscopy and imaging, micro- and nanooptics, quantum optics, optical sensing and metrology, optical system design semiconductor optics, and fiber optics. The conference committee is now accepting submissions.

Abstract submission deadline: June 30th, 2018
