On April 1-3, 2005, the Binational Consortium of Optics (BNCO) which is the partnership of the University of Arizona together with the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, the Centro de Investigacion Cientifica y de Educacion Superior de Ensenada, and the Centro de Investigaciones en Optica, is running the School on nonlinear and multiscale photonics (Binational Spring School) for a second year. The activity level in nonlinear and multiscale photonics is exploding, driven by progress in material fabrication technology, in information science, and increasing interest in optics at extreme scales.

The spring school will take place on the campus of the University of Arizona at the Department of Mathematics, room 501. The format of the Spring School consists of afternoon educational sessions primarily for graduate students and morning research sessions for all participants. The Lectures will present surveys of advances by BNCO partners in the fields of nonlinear and multiscale photonics for fundamental optics as well as industrial applications. It will provide opportunities for graduate students and young researchers to learn more about recent advances from the originators of research in these areas. In addition these sessions will allow identification of research areas for future collaboration of the project partners, encourage participation by young researchers and provide varied opportunities for interaction and discussion focusing on problems of general and practical importance. Students participants are expected to present posters in a session that will be attended by all participants.
