Summary on Grant Application Form
Recent years have seen a variety of different communities developing a common interest in light and complexity. This includes scientists working in areas as diverse as imaging in complex biological tissues, broadband optical fibre communication, design of advanced optical materials, quantum technologies and quantum imaging. By bringing together a number of early career researchers and experts in these areas, we can establish new links between these fields and discover often surprising similarities in different systems. The meeting goes outside of traditional formats by focusing primarily on a generation of early-stage academics within 10 years from their PhD in a unique setting, the Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park. A small number of prominent invited and plenary speakers have been selected to present their groundbreaking research and to set the scene for a high-quality discussion. Together with early stage researchers, several prominent panellists are invited to discuss current topics in scientific publishing, art and enterprise. An important element of the workshop is formed by posters, which form a central part of the meeting and will stimulate discussions amongst participants. The meeting will include participants from various universities inside UK as well as from overseas countries and is intended to foster a strong international community of light in complex systems.
