Descripción de la actividad

Photonics is the science and techniques of generating, controlling, propagating, storage and detecting light waves and photons, which are particles of light. Photonics is the field of Light Sciences and Technologies.

Light plays a vital role in our daily lives and is being an imperative cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century. It has revolutionized medicine, opened up international communication via the internet, enables sustainable development and provides solutions to global challenges in education, energy, environment and agriculture and continues to be central to linking cultural, economic and political aspects of the global society. Today, it is widely accepted that the present century will depend as much on photonics as the 20th century depended on electronics.

The United Nations Organization (UN) has recognized the key role of Photonics to raise global awareness and has proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015).

Taking into account these considerations this Event (Advanced Course) has been conceived as a great opportunity to contribute to the education of citizens, to review and actualize knowledge in this Key or Essential science and technology for the development of the nations and, at the end of the day, of a new world.

It is also a great opportunity to ensure that policymakers are made aware of the problem-solving potential of Photonics. It is also a tremendous opportunity to reach the world focus on light based sciences and technologies in the UIMP in Santander during the third week of June 2015. Four Nobel Prizes and highly renowned professors and researchers from the most prestigious institutions and, as well, several Presidents of the most reputed international Photonic Scientific Unions will participate in the meeting.

This advanced course has been programed into the frame of the IYL2015. Sponsored by SPIE, the attendees will enjoy an exhibition of panels and will also receive several commemorative gifts within their registration documents.

As co-sponsor of the LiST course, the Hotel Santemar will offer to all attendees very special accommodation fares: 65Euros/night and 80Euros/night per single and double rooms respectively (breakfast included).
