Date: Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Location: UCSB, Engineering Science Building, Rooms ESB1001, ESB 2001, ESB 2003
Join us for our spring event the 2017 Light Science Workshop for a day of talks and presentations about the cutting edge in photonics research and career opportunities in this blossoming industry. The event will feature a keynote speaker, technical and non-technical presentations, Q&A panels, a job fair and a poster session!
The presentations will have two tracks: Technical and non-technical. The Technical Track will feature lectures on cutting-edge research in the area from varying fields that use and manipulate light. The Non-Technical Track will focus on careers in the industry and professional development. Keep checking back on this page for the most up-to-date information!
The event is free for those affiliated with a university or college. Otherwise, general admission to the event is $20.
