Aims of Workshop


The workshop Nonlinear Guided Waves  is part of a series devoted to nonlinear optics and light localization.  Its main aims are to pinpoint the state-of-the-art and the recent advances in the field and to introduce non-specialist researchers in physics, engineering and applied mathematics to the required background and current research on nonlinear guided waves in soft matter, particularly in liquid crystals. It is anticipated that the workshop will lead to new scientific collaborations, including those between local and overseas researchers.
