Face2Phase: Holography, Tomography, 3D imaging, Phase Retrival


Science Center Delft,
9-11 October 2017​​

Organised by


This conference addresses several 3D imaging methods that uses phase information, namely Holography, Tomography, Phase Retrieval and their applications.

In two and a half days, we will have an exciting scientific program consisting of  invited speakers who  will present their research and their views on these topics, two poster sections and a special seminar organised by the SPIE student chapter.

The objective of this conference is to provide interaction between researchers working in these fields, in particular,  interaction between young and more experienced researchers.

Students and post docs are encouraged to submit their work for the talk or poster presentations (deadline 15 of June 2017). A poster prize will be awarded for the best poster.

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.

Social events include a conference dinner and a special holography exhibition.

The Conference is sponsored by PhotonicsNL, cluster of photonics companies and Universities in the Netherlands.

The Conference is organised in cooperation with the Delft University of Technology (TUDELFT), the European Optical Society (EOS), the Dutch Optics Center (DOC) and the SPIE Student Chapter of TUDelft.
