The International Symposium on Modern Optics and Its Applications (ISMOA) is a meeting held by the Indonesian Optical Society (InOS). The 14th ISMOA or ISMOA 2023 is organized in collaboration with the Physics of Magnetism and Photonics Research Group of Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Physics Department of Padjadjaran University (UNPAD) and Research Center for Photonics of National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) on 1-4 August 2023 in Bandung, Indonesia. The theme of this symposium is “Enhancing Quality Education and Sustainable Research with Photonics”. 

This meeting, as all its previous meetings, is aimed at providing a forum of scientific communication and interactions among regional scientists and distinguished scientists working in the rapidly growing field of modern optics and photonics, covering theoretical, computational and experimental studies of optical/photonic fundamental phenomenon, devices and materials.

The meeting is initiated by tutorial sessions on 1 August 2023 which is aimed to equip young scientists with sufficient background in order to attend the main meeting on 2 – 4 August 2023. A free Summer Course is also organized on 28 July – 1 August 2023 prior to the symposium to equip undergraduate and graduate students on knowledge of the fields of modern optics / photonics, which is designed to fit 2 credit units (2 CUs) of Indonesian education system, hence possible for credit earning.

The main meeting on 2 – 4 August 2023 will consist of Plenary Sessions and Poster Presentations. The Plenary Sessions will consist of the presentations from Invited Speakers and Contributed Speakers. Poster session will be initiated by 3-minute preview of presentation followed by poster promotion during coffee break session, in which participants can interact with the poster presenter in friendly informal environment.
