Face2Phase – Oct 21-23, 2019

The conference Fase2Phase, 2nd Edition, addresses imaging with phase information and covers topics such as lensless imaging, aberration retrieval, adaptive and active optics, ptychography, holography, tomography, phase retrieval and applications.

Date : 21 – 23 October 2019
Location: Delft 
Organisation: TU Delft + AOIM XII – Adaptive Optics conference
Website: Face2Phase

In parallel to the conference, a special exhibition; “Optics for all” is organized by the Optics Research group.  On Wednesday afternoon there is a workshop organized (free of charge) for the students with four interesting speakers.  On Tuesday evening we have planned the poster session combined with a walking dinner.  The conference dinner on Wednesday evening organised together with the Adaptive Optics conference.

The following distinguished invited speakers have confirmed their attendance:

Prof. John Rodenburg, University of Sheffield (UK)
Dr. Andreas Menzel, Paul Scherrer Institute (CH)
Prof. Paul Planken, ARCNL/UVA (NL)
Prof. Allard Mosk, University Utrecht (NL)

6th International Symposium of Space Optical Instrument and Application – Sep 24-25, 2019

We are glad to announce that the 6th edition of annual International Symposium of Space Optical Instrument and Application conference will be held in Delft, from Sep 24th to Sep 25th, 2019.

The goal of the symposium is to encourage international communication and cooperation in space optics, and promote the innovation, research and engineering development, initiated by the Sino-Holland Space Optical Instruments Joint Laboratory. This year, we will have special focus on satellite applications for air monitoring. During the conference, there will be an exhibition of earth images taken from satellites.

The topics of this conference will include:

  • Space optical remote sensing system design
  • Advanced optical system design and manufacture
  • Remote sensor calibration and measurement
  • Remote sensing data processing and information extracting
  • Remote sensing data application


There is no registration fee for attendance to the symposium. If you wish to attend, please register by emailing shconference@tno.nl.
