The seminar contains plenary and invited talks of world-leading scientists in the field of 3D-printed optical systems, micro-, and nano-optics as well as representatives of the optics industry. Additionally, we aim at discussing the state-of-the-art in these fields in high-class poster sessions. The seminar will be concluded by a panel discussion about "Future directions of 3D printed micro- and nano-optics".

The final program can be found here.
