Workshop on Optics & Photonics: Theory & Computational Techniques (OPTCT)

March 23-24, 2019, IIT Delhi

Theory and computational techniques play a very important role in the development of applications of optics and photonics. This workshop would provide a platform to researchers engaged in theory and computational techniques in various areas of photonics including classical optics, guided wave optics, imaging, quantum optics and nonlinear optics. In computation techniques, the emphasis would be on methodology, algorithm, coding interface, novel applications, novel designs and not on routine applications of techniques and commercial softwares. Earlier Workshops were held at IIT Delhi (2017) and IIT Roorkee (2018).

The Workshop will consist of talks and posters. Talks would be of 20 min duration and would present the basics as well as the latest developments of a topic. 3-4 talks on related topics would form a session and 20-30 min would be devoted at the end of session for discussion and comments on the talks. Talks would be typically given by researchers who have contributed significantly on the subject. Posters would present the latest results and significant achievements. Researchers would be encouraged to bring their laptops to demonstrate their results along with posters. 

There is also a possibility of a demonstration session, if enough interest is generated. The Workshop is open to researchers and students in the general area of theory and computations in optics and photonics.
