The next General Congress of the International Commission for Optics (ICO) and the Conference of International Society on Optics Within Life Sciences (OWLS) will be held from 5th to 9th September 2022 in Dresden, Germany. The TU Dresden is proud to host ICO-25 and OWLS-16.

The ICO, “the Place where the World of Optics and Photonics Meets”, is an affiliated commission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), and a scientific associate of the International Council of Science (ICS). Its objective is to contribute, on an international basis, to the progress and diffusion of knowledge in the fields of optics and photonics. The ICO has the missions to foster advanced optics science and technology and to promote the development of science and technology in developing countries. The ICO is an umbrella organization with more than 50 territorial committee members and several international academic societies: OSA (The Optical Society), SPIE (The International Society for Optics and Photonics), EOS (European Optical Society), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), OWLS (International Society on Optics Within Life Sciences), LAM (African Laser, Atomic and Molecular Physics Network), and RIAO (The Iberian American Network on Optics).
