About Hamamatsu

OIE2023 will be held in Hamamatsu.
Hamamatsu is known to many optical scientists and engineers as the company name. But it was originally the name of the city. Hamamatsu is a manufacturing town with a thriving industry such as automobiles, motorcycles, musical instruments, and opt-electronics. And it is also known as the founder's town. The founders of some of Japan's leading manufacturing companies were born in and around Hamamatsu.
In Hamamatsu facing the Pacific Ocean, there is a brackish lake called Hamana-ko lake. Blessed with a warm climate and sunlight, Hamamatsu is rich in seafood and fruits. In particular, it is one of Japan's leading production areas of eels and oranges.
Hamamatsu is easily accessible from major cities in Japan. It is close to Nagoya and between Tokyo and Osaka. There are daily direct flights from Helsinki to Tokyo. You can reach Hamamatsu from Tokyo in an hour and a half by Shinkansen.

About OIE

OIE is an international joint meeting that follows up the line of the thirteen symposia held so far in Lappeenranta 1995, Tsukuba 1997, Kajaani 1999, Suita 2001, Saariselkä 2003, Sapporo 2005, Tampere 2007, Tokyo 2009, Turku 2011, Utsunomiya 2013, Joensuu 2015, Niigata/Sado 2017, and Espoo/Tallinn 2019. The aim of the symposium series is to provide a timely forum for presenting latest novel and innovative works on new photonics, technologies and device applications, and to promote the interaction between Finnish and Japanese scientists who are working in the fields of pure and applied optics and photonics.
