They typically meet twice a year on a regular basis. Interesting lectures on special topics are presented and discussed in depth. In many cases the meeting ends with a guided tour of a company or a university institute.
In this working group of the universities, in which also industry representatives are very welcome, cooperations in education are discussed, joint trade fair appearances are planned and study-relevant contents are discussed.
This group has been in existence since 2005 and is a joint working group of bayern photonics, optence and PhotonicsBW. The joint sessions not only deal with topics related to optics design and simulation, but also deliberately look over the edge. So topics like "seeing" or "image processing" were on the agenda of the working group.
