Optics & Photonics in Sweden  6 + 7 October 2021!!

At Umeå University, Umeå

Konferensen Optics & Photonics in Sweden 2021 har sedan tidigare planerats hållas på Umeå universitet den 6 – 7 oktober. Under rådande omständigheter med ett osäkert pandemiläge, och baserat på nuvarande restriktioner i samhället, kan vi idag dock inte garantera, ur ett säkerhets- och trivselperspektiv, att konferensen kommer att kunna hållas som planerat. Vi bevakar dock läget och, baserat på såväl Folkhälsomyndighetens som Universitets kommande rekommendationer, kommer vi, i slutet av augusti, att återkomma med information huruvida detta är möjligt. Om detta inte visar sig vara möjligt, kommer vi, snarast därefter, att återkomma med information om alternativ plats och/eller tid.

PhotonicSweden, together with Umeå University, planned to hold the Optics & Photonics in Sweden 2021 conference on 6-7 October 2021. Under the present circumstances with the uncertain situation in the pandemic and the current restrictions in the society, we cannot guarantee that the conference can be held as planned. We monitor the situation carefully though, and based on the recommendations of the public health authority and the university, which will be published at the end of august, we will know if we can organise the conference as planned in Umeå on the 6-7 October. If this will not be possible, we will inform you as soon as possible how, where and when the conference will be held.
