We are happy to announce the 2015 Siegman International School on Lasers that will take place in Amberg from August 2-7.

MPL is hosting the school, in cooperation with OSA. Philip Russell and Nicolas Joly are the (Co-)Chairs of the Program Committee.

The Siegman International School is a week-long program that exposes students to in-depth learning of lasers and their applications from internationally recognized academic and industry leaders in the field.  The scope includes all aspects of lasers and photonics. This program consists of lectures, networking events, professional development programs, poster presentations and research sharing and brings together the top 100 student applicants from around the world.

The school was established in honor of Anthony E. Siegman, 1999 OSA President, founding board member of The OSA Foundation and widely known expert on lasers and optics.  This program is co-founded by IPG Photonics and endowed by donors from around the world.

Honor a luminary. Inspire the future.

Dr. Siegman made significant contributions to the scientific community and inspired many students through his passion for teaching. As an OSA Volunteer, he served on the organizing committee for OSA's first summer school program—International Summer Session on Lasers and Their Applications. The program was a great success with 100 students representing 13 different countries. 

To honor Tony, his colleagues, family and friends came together to fund the Siegman International School Endowment that will keep his legacy alive and inspire the next generation.
