9th International Conference on Optical, Optoelectronic and Photonic Materials and Applications (ICOOPMA)

Dear Colleagues,

It is with pleasure that we invite to you for the 9th International Conference on Optical, Optoelectronic and Photonic Materials and Applications (ICOOPMA). ICOOPMA is an international conference series on optical, optoelectronic and photonic materials for a wide range of applications from telecommunications to photovoltaics, and optical, optoelectronic and electro-optic properties of all classes of materials and material systems.

The conference will be held on June 20-25, 2021, in the historical buildings of the University of Pardubice, Czech Republic, situated in the vicinity of hotels and student's dormitories and within a walking distance from the city center.

The city of Pardubice is located about 100 km east of Prague, the capital of Czech Republic and Kutná Hora. Both places are listed on UNESCO heritage.
