The Summer Course on Modern Optics and Its Applications (SCoMOA)

is an international summer course held by the Indonesian Optical Society (InOS). The SCoMOA 2023 is organized in collaboration with the Physics Department, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Department of Electrical Engineering, Universitas Pelita Harapan, Universitas Padjadjaran, and University of Malaya.

The SCoMOA 2023 will be carried out on July 28th – August 1st, 2023. The summer course will be organized in hybrid mode, where participants from Indonesia will attend the course in-person in Institut Teknologi Bandung while international participants may attend the course online in synchronous mode. The summer course will be integrated with the tutorial sessions of ISMOA 2023. Participants are encouraged to join ISMOA after following the course.


The aim of the summer course is to equip participants with basic knowledge on the rapidly growing field of modern optics.


The course is designed to address undergraduate and early graduate students in physics and engineering.

Learning Load and Credit Earning

Learning load in the course will consists of 16 x 100 minutes sessions. The learning will consists of lectures, discussions, laboratory sessions, homeworks, groupworks, and evaluations. This learning loads fits to Indonesian 2 credit units course learning load.
