International Workshop
"Nonlinear Photonics: Theory, Materials, Applications"

The Workshop is organized jointly by the St. Petersburg State University and the State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics. The Workshop is planned as a small forum consisting of about fifty 15 to 25 minute talks and a poster session. Participation of young researchers and PhD students is strongly encouraged. The registration fee for the workshop is 100 Euros. Registration is free for PhD students (the PhD status has to be confirmed by a supervisor).

Please register your participation with and direct your questions about visa support and accommodation to Dr. Ekaterina Efremova at Include the title and a short (few sentences) abstract of your talk into your registration email. You are always welcome to get in touch with committee members.
