SUMMER SCHOOL ON VISUAL OPTICS: From Physics to Biomedical Applications

We are pleased to announce the “Summer School on Visual Optics: from
Physics to Biomedical Applications” to be held in Jaca (Pyrenees, Spain)
from June 19-22, 2007.
Program and full details can be found at:

The school grounds on the long tradition of Summer Schools organized in
the Pyrenees by the Spanish Optical Society on very different aspects of
Optics and Photonics.  The School will offer the participants the
state-of-the art of research and current hot topics in Visual Optics, and
in particular the application of concepts and tools from different areas
in physics to the development of new technologies in ophthalmology. The
Summer School will provide an international and interdisciplinary forum
for debate, and stimulation of ideas in the frontier of physics and
applications in the field of ophthalmology and vision. It will foster
interactions between world leaders and young researchers in the field of
Visual Optics to share research experiences and explore potential

The School is addressed to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from all
over the world involved in research in Visual Optics and related fields.
A limited number of applications will be selected among bright, highly
motivated undergraduate students interested in pursuing an academic
career in an interdisciplinary area of research. The School is open to 40
participants, and selection will be based on academic records. The
instructions for application can be found in the School website.
Participation fee for students is 150 euros (accommodation, meals and all
activities included). Deadline is March 15th.

The School is organized by the Vision Sciences Committee of the Spanish
Optical Society. The venue will be based at the Residencia de Estudiantes
(Jaca), in the Spanish Pyrenees . The Residencia will accommodate all
participants and will provide a cosy atmosphere for discussions and
interactions. A half-day trip to the breathtaking Ordesa Valley in the
heart of the Pyrenees is planned.
