As its first official activity, the Binational Consortium of Optics (BNCO) is running a winter school in Nonlinear and Stochastic Optics. The BNCO was recently formed by 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. The winter school will take place from January 10th through January 13th on the campus of the University of Arizona. The aims of the Winter School include presentation of surveys of advances by BNCO partners for basic optics and industrial applications; education of graduate students and young researchers about the advances in these areas; identification of research areas for future collaboration of the project partners; encouragement of participation by young researchers; provision of varied opportunities for interaction and discussion focusing on problems of general and practical importance. Distinguished speakers will present an overview of the current state of nonlinear and stochastic science in optics that all participants, including selected post-graduate students will attend. Students will have the opportunity to present posters to all participants.



Registration fee for the conference is $25
