Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics (KDOP)

Save the Date KDOP

KSOP‘s qualification both as research and education platform for the future‘s greats in Optics & Photonics is based on close partnerships with leaders from industry and academia. To deepen these knowledge networks, KSOP provides the bi-annual Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics.

Every other year for two days, the Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics brings together leading experts of Optics & Photonics to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). During the conference, each of the five research areas of KSOP is highlighted by plenary lectures. As one lecture is given by a KSOP principal investigator, the other one will be held by an invited expert in the respective field.

In addition, all KSOP doctoral researchers present their research in a poster session.

This turns KDOP into an efficient format to initiate collaboration with national as well as international partners from industry and academia. With an average of 150 participants, we are proud to provide a renowned forum in the Optics & Photonics world.
