Gaining inspiration from the success of our previous conference, OLC International is organizing 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Laser Optics & Photonics – OLCLOP-2020 which will be held during December 07-08, 2020 in Krakow, Poland.
Laser optics and photonics are rapidly evolving and play a prominent role in industrial, medical defense and scientific research applications. Especially in the medical device space, they are considered as the next big thing making wonderful contributions to several challenging environments. They are considered a boon in pediatric optometry and skin laser resurfacing with their recent applications and trends.
OLCLOP-2020 is a global platform for researchers, innovators, students, policy makers, members of associations, and professionals from academic and industry backgrounds to come together to discuss their research activities and advancements in these fields while sharing their ideas and exhibit laser optics and photonics products.
This two-day event features world renowned keynote speakers, invited talks, plenary speeches, poster presentations, workshops, discussions, career guidance sessions and several other post conference events that inspire young researchers enhance their research and careers while providing them the opportunity to meet new contacts in the field of laser optics and photonics.
OLCLOP-2020 is designed to stimulate discussions and debates about current research in these fields and emphasizes on innovative approaches in different areas of lasers, optics and photonics to learn of the new ideas that could help scientific communities to advance their research and forge new professional relationships. We hope this conference will offer all the participants a rewarding experience.
We look forward to welcome you at OLCLOP-2020 in Krakow, Poland.
Krakow, a southern Poland city near the border of the Czech Republic, is known for its well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter. Its old town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centered on the stately, expansive Rynek Glówny (market square). This plaza is the site of the Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church.
Top Things to do in Krakow, Poland:
The main branch of Poland's National Museum boasts around 780,000 art objects that span throughout history. The key draw for tourists, though, is its emphasis on Polish painting.
This 13th-century Wieliczka Salt Mine was in use until 2007. The miners had to spend so much time down there that they carved Catholic statues and chapels out of the rock salt!
For those worshipping above ground, this sightseeing essential has been the center of Krakow's religious life since the 11th century. Pope John Paul II was ordained at the Wawel Cathedral in 1946.
Keen hikers should allow time for a day trip to the region's scenic Bieszczady Mountains. It's pronounced Bee-esh-chardy, for those unfamiliar with Polish!
Significantly higher than the Bieszczady, a far tougher climb is rewarded with breathtaking views. We'd advise against taking Tatras' notoriously dangerous Orla Perć trail though!
Want to cover the main sights of Krakow in a day? Start your tour in the Old Town. The Krakow Main Square alone hosts Cloth Hall, the Town Hall Tower, and the Statue of Adam Mickiewicz.
Schindler’s Factory and the Krakus Mound are located in this area but be sure to wander away from these sights after you’ve thoroughly explored them for a more in-depth look at Polish life.
The architecture is unique and the square in Podgorze is quite impressive as well.
From the Krakow Ghetto Wall to incredible examples of world-famous street art, Podgorze has quite a lot to offer newcomers and is a great place to spend a few hours walking around away from the busy tourist crowds.
8. Rynek Underground Museum
Journey below the Main Market Square to a place where you can walk the medieval streets of ancient Krakow.
Roughly 10 years ago, portions of the Main Market Square were excavated, unearthing ancient market stalls, artifacts, and even a cemetery. In 2010, these archaeological treasures were transformed into a museum.
The Rynek Underground Museum is an interesting blend of medieval history and state-of-the-art technology. Touchscreens, video displays and digital reconstructions take you back to the middle ages in Krakow. And all the while, hundreds of tourists are walking across the Main Market Square, just over your head!
9. St Mary's Basilica
This striking brick church, best known simply as St Mary’s, is dominated by two towers of different heights. The first church here was built in the 1220s and following its destruction during a Tatar raid, construction of the basilica began. Tour the exquisite interior, with its remarkable carved wooden altarpiece, and in summer climb the tower (adult/concession 15/10zł) for excellent views. Don't miss the hourly hejnał (bugle call) from the taller tower.
The main church entrance, through a baroque portal added to the southwestern facade in the 1750s, is used by worshippers; tourists must enter through the side door to the southeast.
The chancel is illuminated by magnificent stained-glass windows dating from the late 14th century; the blue star vaulting of the nave is breathtaking.On the opposite side of the church, above the organ loft, is a fine art nouveau stained-glass window by Stanisław Wyspiański and Józef Mehoffer. The colourful wall paintings, designed by Jan Matejko, harmonise beautifully with the medieval architecture and are an appropriate background for the high altar, which is acclaimed as the greatest masterpiece of Gothic art in Poland and allegedly designated the eighth wonder of the world by Pablo Picasso.
