IEEE Benelux Chapter

Annual Symposium 2021

25th-26th November 2021, University of Mons, Belgium


Welcome to the website of the 25th annual Symposium of the IEEE Photonics Benelux Chapter, which is being held at the University of Mons in Belgium. As in previous editions, we have an exciting and interesting scientific program consisting of invited speakers who will present the topic of photonics from a different application, research, and entrepreneurial perspective. Moreover, we have two poster sessions and ample opportunity for interaction and networking. On behalf of the organizing committee, I am glad to welcome you to the symposium in the city of Mons!
