CAOL*2013 will provide a forum for scientists in a wide area of laser physics and optoelectronics.The conference will cover wide frontiers in laser physics, nanotechnology, new materials, nonlinear optics and optical communications. Its characteristic feature is a stronger emphasis on the mathematical, physical and technological aspects of the researches, together with a detail analysis of the application problems. The technical program traditionally consists of invited lectures and regular contributed papers.
The previous conferences were successfully held in 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2010 in Crimea, and in 2006 in Guanajuato, Mexico. Information on the previous international meetings on optoelectronics and lasers can be found in IEEE Photonics Society Newsletter (formerly IEEE/LEOS Newsletters): 4-1999, 4-2000, 4-2001, 3-2004 2-2006, 2-2009, 4-2010, 4-2011 etc. 

Conference will be held in collaboration with regional chapters of IEEE Photonics Society, OSA, SPIE.
