Mathematical Aspects of Modern Optics
Institut Teknologi Bandung, Bandung, Indonesia
29 January - 9 February, 2007
- Program Committee
The organizing committee cordially invites you to take part in the National Workshop and International Symposium on the Mathematical Aspects of Modern Optics and Its Applications (WS-MAMOA), which will be held at the Physics Department, Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Bandung, Indonesia, from 29 January to 9 February, 2001.
Modern Optics (MO) including Nonlinear Optics (NLO) is one of the scientific backbones for integrated optics and photonic technology in general, which support among others, the important developments of optical communica-tion as well as optical information processing systems. In an era of increasing demand for higher speed in data communication and pro-cessing, the roles of modern optics devices are becoming more important and even indispens-able. The acquaintance with these technologies, and hence its underlying fundamentals of modern optics, will most certainly benefit the overall performance of a society in the global competition. There are therefore compelling needs for the universities and R&D organizations in Indonesia and neighboring regions to make a serious entrance into this particular field of study. It is for the purpose of meeting those needs that this event is organized.

The activity planned for The Workshop consists of intensive lectures and tutorials given by senior scientists from ITB and the University of Twente (U. Twente). The lectures are designed to cater for participants with diverse backgrounds in physics and mathematics. This is followed by independent group projects to be carried out by the participant under the guidance of experienced staffs. This activity will be held over a period of 10 days from 29/1 to 7/2.
The Workshop covers the following topics:
- Basic theory and mathematical tools
Wave propagations in uniform structures
Orthogonality of waveguide modes
Coupled mode theory
Scattering matrix theory
Examples of applications
- Numerical methods
Unidirectional methods (Finite difference (FD), and Fast Fourier transform (FFT) Beam Propagation Method (BPM))
Pandirectional methods (Time domain BPM, Perfectly matched layer (PML))
photonic band gaps
- Nonlinear Optics
2nd order effects
3rd order effects
University students, graduates, graduate students as well as working scientists and engineers interested in modern optics and it applications are all eligible to participate in the Workshop and Symposium.

Facilities and Rewards
Handouts, necessary tools and rooms for the activities will be provided by the organizers. Lunches and refreshments will also be offered to all participants. Student participants with outstanding performance will be recommended for some research awards to continue their projects or as potential recipients of scholarship for further studies at the University of Twente, the Netherlands.
The International Symposium
The International Symposium on Modern Optics and Its Application will be held on 8th and 9th February, right after the workshop. Presentation of both invited and contributed papers are expected at the symposium. For the Symposium, topics on various aspects of Modern Optics and its applications are welcome.
Submission of Abstract
A prospective contributor is expected to submit an abstract of approximately 100-150 words in length, typed single spaced in 12 point Times New Roman. The abstract should be submitted to the Secretariat, before 20 November 2000.
Acceptance of Abstract
Acceptance of abstract will be informed via e-mail by the organizing committee on the 20th of December 2000 along with detailed instruction on writing format. Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to prepare and submit the full papers to the secretariat on the opening day of the Symposium (8th February).
Proceedings of the Symposium will be issued within six months after the event. Papers to be published in the Proceeding are subject to reviews by referees. An order placed for the proceeding during the Symposium requires a prepayment of Rp. 100.000,- per copy.
A registration fee will be imposed according to the following rates
Rp. 750.000, for participants from universities and research institutes.
Rp. 250.000, for students.
Rp. 2.000.000, for participants from industries and abroad.
The amounts stated above cover the fees for Workshop and Symposium. For those who are interested in The Symposium only, the registration fee will be Rp. 500,000,-.
Limited funds are available for partial supports of land and sea travels for participants from Indonesian Universities outside Jawa. Application for registration fee discount will also be considered.
