The international Optoelectronics and Photonics School is a biannual event which is being held traditionally being in the Trentino Region since 2001. The current school is the 12th edition of the series.
Typically, the school is addressing specific topics within the international scientific community of Optoelectronics and Photonics. It aims to bring together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world who follow a series of lectures on selected topics across a one-week intense schedule. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same time, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized. To this end a lunch break of few hours is considered to allow hiking and relaxing on the mountains or at the hotel facilities.
Through the years, the different editions of the school have been organized principally by the Nanoscience Laboratory of the University of Trento and in few occasions by the Center of Sensors and Devices of the Bruno Kessler Foundation, both located at the scientific district of Povo in Trento.
Throughout these years the School had a continuous success and has gained the fame of an important event among both young students and experts in the field.
