EPS Awards Ceremony:
EPS Quantum Electronics Prizes
for outstanding contributions to quantum electronics and optics.
There is one prize for fundamental aspects and one prize for applied
for outstanding contributions to quantum electronics and optics
made by young scientists before the age of 35. There is one prize
for fundamental aspects and one prize for applied aspects.
QEOD Thesis Prizes
for the best nominated PhD theses in the area of quantum electronics
and optics submitted in the two years prior to the CLEO/Europe-IQEC
meeting. These prizes (total of 4) will be awarded for fundamental
and for applied aspects.
CLEO IQEC 2007 Walther Memorial Plenary
The late Professor Herbert Walther was instrumental
in the organisation and success of CLEO Europe and in cementing
international bonds between researchers in optics in many fields.
In his honour, this special Memorial Session will consist of a number
of invited presentations spanning the wide range of his technical
