Practical Info
The Institute of Physics, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology and the International Centre of Physics is hosting the International School on Photonics and Applications (ISPA–2020) from November 1 – 3, just before the 11th International Conference on Photonics and Applications (ICPA–11).

ISPA-2020 aims to provide opportunities for early career scientists (Postdocs) and postgraduate students (Master and PhD) from universities and institutes worldwide to learn about recent trends in photonics and its applications by engaging and interacting with world – leading scientists.

For three full days, established researchers and professors will deliver lectures on topics including:
  • Optical spectroscopy and its applications
  • Photonics materials and devices
  • Advanced laser light sources
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Terahertz and its applications
  • Plasma Technology
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in open discussions with the speakers and to network with their peers.

Financial support is available for attendees from ASEAN countries
