Second edition Face2Phase
Science Centre Delft,
21-23 October 2019


The second edition conference Face2Phase  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.

The Face2Phase event is co-organized with the AOIM XII  that will take place on 23-25 October 2019 in Delft.  Delagates of Face@Phase have full access to AOIM talks and program events, and delegates of AOIM have full access to the Face2Phase program (AO school is not included). Only one regitration (to any of these two events) is necessary.  The events are scheduld one after another to avoid parallel sessions: Face2Phase on 21-23 October, and AOIM on 23-25 Oct, with no overlap. 

In parallel to the conference a special exhibition is organized and the SPIE Student Chapter will organize an event for students. Social activities are planned a walking dinner on Tuesday evening and a conference dinner on Wednesday evening organised together with the Adaptive Optics conference.

The meeting will take place in Delft, from Monday 21 October 2019 till Wednesday 23 October 2019.
