Following a long tradition, we are very pleased to inform you that the next European Semiconductor Laser Workshop will be held in Madrid-Spain, on September 24th & 25th 2015, just before the 41st European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC-2015) (September 27th – October 1st. 2015 in Valencia Spain).

The workshop will take place at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), Campus “Puerta de Toledo”. The workshop provides the opportunity for informal discussions about recent advances and achievements in the field of semiconductor laser diodes, related devices and their applications. The workshop is arranged in the form of invited talks, contributed presentations, both oral and poster. We warmly welcome you to attend this workshop and promote fruitful discussions.

International year of light 2015




Beside its outstanding technical interest mentioned above, the European Semiconductor Laser Workshop 2015 takes place at Madrid city center (also known as Madrid of the Austrians or the Habsburgs). Is a name used for the old centre of Madrid, built during the reign of the Habsburg Dynasty, known in Spain as Casa de Austria. Puerta de Toledo is known for hosting El Rastro de Madrid which is the most popular open air flea market held every Sunday and public holiday. The area is trendy and festive with many small bars and restaurants where you can drink “Cañitas” and “Tapitas” (small beers and snacks) and has managed to retain much of its village ambiance.
