For the first time in history the Jorge André Swieca Summer School of Quantum and Nonlinear Optics will take place in the South of Brazil, here at the Federal University of Paraná. The Summer School is a scientific event promoted by the Brazilian Physical Society and is organized by the UFPR OPTICA Student Chapter in partnership with the Optics and Photonics Research Center (CEPOF - IFSC - USP) and the Exact Sciences Sector of UFPR.

The School is directed mainly to graduate students in physics or related fields who have an interest in optics and lasers. The School will cover courses on fundamental and specialized research, as well as applications. Faculty members are instructed to prepare the courses in a didactic manner. The goals of the School are to update researchers, to instruct students in recent advances in the field of optics, and especially the goal of interaction and development of new research partnerships.

This event will take place between March 6 and 11, 2023, and will last for 5 official days, with the participation of up to 100 students. As activities, we will have lectures, mini-courses, seminars, poster presentations, round tables, visits to UFPR laboratories and extension projects.


We count on your presence to make this event memorable!
