Cali, Armenia - Colombia
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), in collaboration with the Universidad del Valle in Cali, Colombia, the Quindio University in Armenia, Colombia, the CASUS-HZDR, Germany and the A. Alikhanyan National Laboratory in Yerevan, Armenia will organize the 10th International Symposium on "Optics & its Applications" (OPTICS-10), which will be held in Cali and Armenia, Colombia from 5 to 9 December, 2022.

Inaugurated in 2011 in Yerevan, Armenia, this series of symposia has become an important forum for scientists working on optics, stimulating exchanges among theorists and experimentalists. The objective of this symposium is to bring together leading specialists and young scientists working on various aspects of optics and to discuss the most recent developments in that area.

OPTICS-10 will combine: invited plenary lectures, sectional reports, presentations of young scientists (there will be special awards from the A. Alikhanyan National Laboratory for the best student's contribution), poster presentations, laboratory tours, and social events.
