About the Boston Photonics Centennial Conference

The Boston Photonics Centennial Conference is a one-day conference held to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Optical Society (OSA). This conference will bring together students and researchers from the greater Boston area who are interested in photonics research, and provides opportunities for professional development, networking, interdisciplinary research, and outreach.

The conference will feature talks by leading academic and industry researchers, as well as oral and poster presentations by students and researchers in the greater Boston area. We welcome researchers at all levels - undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, industry researchers - to present their work at this conference, which covers fields related to photonics, such as plasmonics, metasurfaces, biophotonics, and quantum optics. Find more information on abstract submission here, and submit an abstract with this form.

The conference is organized by the Harvard SEAS Photonics Club. Find out more about the club and its activities here.
