Welcome to the Belgian Photonics Online Meetup

The goal of bePOM is to strengthen the Belgian photonics network, associating research groups from all the universities in Belgium working on fundamental and applied topics in photonics. It will give the opportunity to early career and established researchers to (re-)discover and learn about the ongoing research topics in the Belgian cities next-door, without moving from their home universities.

bePOM is an entirely free virtual conference and is affiliated with the POM conference


3rd bePOM edition - 29 & 30 September 2022
