31 August – 08 September 2013: Organization of the First African Summer School on Optics and Applications to Sustainable Development (ASOSD), Carthage, Tunisia.
The summer school took place at Carthage Hannibal, Tunis from 31 August to 08 September 2013.
The summer school is intended to be the first of a series of schools/workshops that are going to be organised periodically by universities in African countries, in order to provide education and training for advanced graduate students, and postdocs faculty who would like to acquire sufficient knowledge to begin having an impact in research areas based on optics, laser science and technology.
The motivation of the organisation of the meeting is to highlight the importance of optics, its scientific study, its role in culture and art, and the application of light-based technologies for global development. Light is at the origin of all life, it plays a central role in human activities, and has revolutionized society through medicine and communications, entertainment and culture. As light becomes a key cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century, it is essential that its importance is fully appreciated. It is equally vital that the brightest young minds from all areas of the world continue to be attracted to careers in this field.
