Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to OASIS 7 (Optical Engineering and Science in Israel) of ILEOS (The Israel Lasers and Electro Optics Society). The meeting will be held on 1-2 April 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The fields of optics, electro-optics, and photonics continue to grow rapidly in Israel, especially over the last few years. It is estimated that there are more than 10000 optics and electro-optics professionals involved in seven universities, several colleges and over 400 companies in Israel.  The OASIS meetings present the latest advances in the field of electro-optics worldwide, as well as to be a showpiece for Israeli optics, electro-optics and laser research and technologies. The OASIS 6 meeting was held in Tel Aviv in February 2017 with more than 1000 participants. Four distinguished scientists gave plenary talks more than 100 lectures were given in 13 sessions. 60 companies exhibited their products and there was a large delegation of European companies.

The OASIS 7 meeting will focus on encouraging interdisciplinary research as well as international cooperation. The meeting’s program reflects some of the areas of current interest in modern optics, including sessions on Non – linear Optics, Spectroscopic and Optical Sensing, Micro and Nano Optics, Electro Optics in Industry, Ultrafast Phenomena, Defense and Optical Engineering, Solar Energy, Atomic and Quantum Optics, Medicine and Biology, Optical Engineering, Lasers and Applications, Electro Optics Devices and Optical Fiber Lasers.

The conference will again host distinguished plenary speakers. In addition there will be several keynote speakers and over a hundred lectures in thirteen sessions. The target audience includes optical scientists and engineers working in these fields.

We encourage students from all institutions of higher learning to participate in this meeting. We will have short tutorials that will introduce students to modern topics in electro-optics. OASIS 7 will expose them to the latest research and development, and help them interact with representatives of Academia and Industry.

I invite you to actively participate in our seventh OASIS meeting.
