Welcome to the 2021 Summer School of the International Conference on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics (OMN)!

As with most international conferences this summer, the OMN Steering Committee and Organizers were unable to host our traditional in-person meeting due to global travel restrictions; however, next summer’s plan is to host OMN in South America for the first time, and we look forward to a spectacular, in-person conference in Campinas, Brazil in August 2022.

In place of a traditional conference in 2021, we will hold an online Summer School devoted to three carefully selected and rapidly developing topics of interest to the OMN community and to optics and photonics professionals at large (check out the program!). We have an exceptional line-up of topics and speakers, and our sessions are open to all, requiring only your free registration on the sign-up page. Note that recordings of the sessions will also be available for those who cannot attend the live online sessions.

The OMN 2021 Summer School has concluded but recordings of the sessions are available to registered students until the end of August. After August, they will be transferred to the IEEE and made available to members only.
