Photonics Society of Poland (PSP) - Polskie Stowarzyszenie Fotoniczne was transformed from the SPIE Poland Chapter on October 18, 2007 during the Extraordinary General Meeting of the SPIE Poland Chapter members. All the members unanimously voted (103 out of 199 SPIE PL members) for transformation of the SPIE Poland Chapter to Photonics Society of Poland. The similar unanimous decision was confirmed by the General Members Meeting on February 25, 2008. The whole registration process of the Photonics Society of Poland was finished in March 2008 by official approval of the National Registration Court in Warsaw.

The reaction of SPIE Headquarters was straightforward and enthusiastic:

“I wish you a very successful meeting later this week and assure you of an ongoing close and supportive relationship with the new Photonics Society of Poland. SPIE’s leadership recognizes and greatly appreciates the wonderful work done by the chapter members in Poland and I know there is sadness in a way at losing our model chapter, but we believe that this step is the fullest recognition of what the chapter there has done. We wish all our chapters had developed in a way to take a similar step”. (Eugene Arthurs)

The official opening ceremony of the Photonics Society of Poland took place on May 31, 2008 during First Symposium of PSP.

Photonics Society of Poland (PSP) is presently with its 214 members (as of 24 January 2022) the largest and the most powerful optics/optoelectronics/photonics organization in Poland. It has already started integration and consolidations activities with Polish Technology Platform on Photonics, Committee of Electronics and Telecommunication/Polish Academy of Sciences and with Polish Committee of Optoelectronics/ Society of Polish Electrical Engineers.

IOS 2022


The main goal of the Conference is to exchange knowledge in the scope of practical applications of integrated optics. The aim of the Conference is to present experiences in the field of technology and theoretical analysis of optoelectronic sensors and practical applications of sensing structures and systems as well as new methods in the field of metrology.

ZEISS International Day of Light

This year’s International Day of Light is on Sunday, May 16. UNESCO instituted this annual, global initiative in 2018 to raise awareness about light-based technologies in science, high-tech, art and culture, as well as the critical role that these technologies play in people's daily lives.

This year marks the first time we're celebrating International Day of Light at ZEISS. We organized a free virtual event including series of scientific talks from various ZEISS experts aligned with the spectrum of light. These presentations are designed for a broad audience and will offer fascinating insights into the intersection of light and optical technologies from the ZEISS portfolio.

Event Information:
Event Date/Time: Sunday, May 16th from 8am - 12pm PCT (5pm – 9pm MESZ/CEST)
Program: Please find the complete program on the ZEISS International Day of Light webpage.
