Science Centre Delft,
9-11 October 2017​​

Organised by

The conference Face2Phase conferences addresses imaging with phase information and covers topics such as lensless imaging, aberration retrieval, adaptive and active optics, ptychography,  holography, tomography, phase retrieval and applications.

In parallel to the conference a Holography Exhibition is held and the SPIE Student Chapter of TU Delft organizes an event for students. There will be social activities such as a welcome reception and conference dinner.

The meeting will take place in Delft, which is a beautiful old town in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam/Amsterdam from Monday 9 October 2017 till Wednesday 11 October 2017.


The program of the conference is now available here.


The following distinguished invited speakers have confirmed their attendance:
