The European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the International Quantum Electronics Conference (CLEO®/Europe-IQEC) is the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers organized in Europe in 2007. IQEC incorporates the X Quantum Electronics Conference (EQEC) providing a world-wide international flavor. Moreover, the meeting is complemented by LASER. World of Photonics 2007, the world’s largest exhibition of laser and optical technology. All this will make the meeting a unique opportunity for learning, networking and business.

CLEO®/Europe 2007 will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics sectors including materials, device development, systems engineering, fabrication and applications. IQEC features the fundamentals of quantum and atom optics, quantum information, cold atoms and molecules, basic research in lasers and spectroscopy, nonlinear and ultra-fast optics and dynamics, instabilities and patterns. In 2007, it will be jointly organised by the International Committee on Quantum Electronics and the EPS, and will attract attendees from all around the world.
Three topical symposia and a Tech-Focus meeting will be held jointly organized by CLEO®/Europe and IQEC. Each symposium is dedicated to a particularly important topical development. One joint symposium addresses photonic cryptographic techniques, another one will be on nanophotonics and metamaterials, while the third symposium is devoted to optical frequency combs and applications. The Tech-Focus meeting is on applications of ultrafast photonic techniques.

CLEO®/Europe-IQEC 2007 is integrated into the world’s largest trade fair on laser technology, LASER. World of Photonics 2007, and will be collocated with a number of smaller specialist conferences including the European Conference on Biomedical Optics, the WLT conference on Lasers in Manufacturing, the DGLM/ISLM congress on Medical Laser Applications, a SPIE conference on Laser Metrology and the Annual Meeting of the European Optical Society. All these collocated conferences, under the banner of “World of Photonics Congress 2007”, will share a common registration and so delegates can attend all the sessions – but authors are expected to register with the conference to which they have submitted papers.

In order to better serve participants active in biomedical optics, it has been arranged that the biomedical optics content of CLEO®/Europe-IQEC 2007 be a joint activity with the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO,, which is sponsored by SPIE and the OSA and organized by SPIE). Joint sessions on novel optical instrumentation for biomedical applications will be held by ECBO and CLEO®/Europe. Papers concerning emerging technologies for biophotonics should be submitted to CLEO®/Europe-IQEC at: (CLEO®/Europe topic "Biophotonics and
Applications"). All other papers concerning biomedical optics should be
submitted to ECBO 2007.
