Dear Colleagues,

We would like to cordially invite you to contribute in the Special Session

on Research Policy of the forthcoming International Commission for Optics

(ICO) Topical Meeting on:

"Emerging Trends and Novel Materials in Photonics"

organized by the Hellenic Optical Society (HeliOS) on October 7-9, 2009 in

Delphi, Greece.

In the ancient times Delphi was considered to be the "Omphalus" (the navel),

of the world, a place of spirit and intelligence, wherein the famous Temple

of Apollo, the ancient God of Light and the Delphi Oracle were established.

Inspired from this Greek classical era, we aspire that this forthcoming

event will constitute a stimulating forum for academia and industry, where

niche and cutting-edge findings and emerging trends in Photonics will be

analyzed, experiences will be shared and collaborations will be established.

A priority objective of ICO-Photonics-Delphi2009 is to outline recent

significant results in the field and become a bridge for optics and

materials oriented communities for establishing a common scientific vision.

The main topics of the Topical Meeting are:

Novel Photonic Materials

Functional Photonic Structures

Strong field & ultrafast effects in photonic materials and structures

Technology Trends in Photonics

The top level scientific program, will be complemented by a round table

discussion on "Photonics and Nanotechnologies: Parallel Roads Intersect", a

special session on European Research Policy in Photonics, as well as the ICO

Prize, the ICO Galileo Galilei Awards and other events. A rich social and

cultural program, including tours to the archaeological sites and museums,

will accompany the scientific events.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Delphi.

With our Best Easter Wishes,

The Conference Chairs,
