Welcome to the Mexican Optics and Photonics Meeting MOPM2017
On 2017, during September 6-8, the Academia Mexicana de Óptica (AMO) is honor to organize the fourth edition of the Mexican Optics and Photonics Meeting (MOPM2017). MOPM is an international scientific three-day meeting concerning optics and photonics in which recent outstanding research results are presented.
Within this MOPM edition we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of AMO and the 45th Anniversary of INAOE.
Nine plenary talks will be offered as part of the MOPM2017 scientific program. These talks will be given by Prof. Eric Mazur, President of the Optical Society (OSA); Prof. Glenn D. Boreman, President of the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE); Prof. Efrain Solarte, President of the Red Iberoamericana de Óptica (RIAO); Prof. Ana Cecilia Noguez Garrido, Mexican National Award for Science 2016; Prof. Luis Orozco, Honoris Causa Doctorate from INAOE in 2016; Prof. Bruce J. Tromberg, Director of the Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic at the University of California; Prof. Demetrios Christodoulides, Professor at the Optics and Photonics of the University of Central Florida; Prof. Giancarlo C. Righini, Professor at the Enrico Fermi Center and Nello Carrara of Applied Physics; and Prof. Joseph W. Haus, Honoris Causa Doctorate from INAOE in 2014. MOPM2017 scientific program will be completed with the participation of 21 invited remarkable researchers and peer-reviewed contributions.
I want to express our special gratitude to ICO, RIAO, SPIE and OSA for their decisive support. Finally, I have no doubt that all the attendees will enjoy this special edition of MOPM2017 at INAOE on September 6-8 2017.
