CLEO, the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, is the premier international forum for scientific and technical optics, uniting the fields of lasers and electro-optics by bringing together all aspects of laser technology, from basic research to industry applications. CLEO 2012 will feature its technical program under three core conferences; CLEO: QELS-Fundamental Science, CLEO: Science & Innovations, and CLEO: Applications & Technology.
In addition to technical presentations and short courses, CLEO 2012 will offer seven special symposia, including the 50th Anniversary of the Semiconductor Laser, Advances in High-Power Lasers and their Applications, Exploring the Quantum Frontiers of Communications, and Space Optical Systems: Opportunities and Challenges.
The CLEO: Market Focus program focuses on the latest trends in the photonic marketplace, providing a forum to discuss new products and emerging technologies and markets while also providing network opportunities. All presentations and discussions will be focused on the latest in photonics products and services that have been playing an important role in the industry and those that potentially hold a future business opportunity. A key feature of this forum will be the survey of market trends and market sector outlook in the selected areas.
CLEO: Expo gathers more than 300 companies from around the globe to introduce new products and provide hands-on demonstrations of their latest innovations. Free exhibit floor programs include the Market Focus program, Technology Transfer Showcase, a Pizza Lunch on the show floor and, new this year, the CLEO: Expo Technology Playground, where top industry players will demonstrate their latest products and services in an exclusive on-floor event that allows attendees to participate in live, interactive presentations.
