nar University) on “Publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals”
  •     Manuel Filipe M. Costa (assistant professor, Department of Physics, Universidade do Minho) on “Optical non-invasive microtopographic inspection of surfaces”
  •     Roberta Ramponi (Director, Institute of Photonics and Nanotechnology, Italian National Research Council, Politecnico di Milano) on “Femtosecond laser micromachining and its applications to the realization of biomedical and photonic devices”
  •     Joe Niemela (Director, Office of External Affairs, ICTP) on “Optics activities in ICTP”
  •     Ahmadou Wague (professor, Université Cheikh Anta Diop) on “Laser spectroscopy and applications at the Laboratoire Atomes Lasers.”
  • The workshop included a popular poster session with Best Poster Awards and prizes sponsored by SPIE. First prize was awarded to Amor Gueddana (Sup'Com-Tunisia) for his paper on "Nondeterministic quantum CNOT gate with double encoding." Second prize went to Giulia Alice Fornaro (CERN) for "Optical coupling optimization between scintillators and photodetectors." Jurors included Niemela, Ramponi, Wague, Zghal, George Thompson (ICTP), and María Yzuel (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona).

    “As light becomes a key cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century, it is essential that its importance is fully appreciated,” said Mourad Zghal, president of the Optical Society of Tunisia and chair of the workshop. “It is equally vital that the brightest young minds from all areas of the world continue to be attracted to careers in this field.” Zghal is associate professor at the Ecole Supérieure des Communications de Tunis (Sup’Com), Université de Carthage.
