build a worldwide student network through student conference

Hello, I am Takayuki Umakoshi, the president of Osaka University OSA/SPIE student chapter. Last year, our chapter and Photonics Center organized the student conference “Asia Student Photonics Conference 2013” to build student networks among Asian countries. This year, we had a theme “Expand the network from Asia to the world”.

  After due deliberation, our chapter decided to hold the IONS in Hokkaido University because it is actively taking place worldwide, and IONS has been never held in Japan!
