When will DoKDoK finally be back?
The next edition of DoKDoK is planned for 15-19 March 2021 in beautiful Arnstadt - we are really looking foward to it, stay tuned!
What is DoKDoK?
DoKDoK is a scientific conference for doctoral (PhD) and master students in all areas of Optics and Photonics. The conferences aims to help young researchers to connect with each other, exchange knowledge, polish their conference presentation skills by offering an authentic atmosphere for scientific exchange at eye level. Thanks to all participants for taking part in DoKDoK 2019! The Report is now online!
DoKDoK is hosted by the Abbe School of Photonics of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and the Jena Alliance Life in Focus - A Carl Zeiss Foundation Project. The conference is traditionally organized by a team of doctoral students of this graduate school.

What topics does DoKDoK cover?
The conference addresses doctoral students, master students, or young post-docs working in Optics and Photonics. Technical sessions will cover topics including Ultrafast Optics, Non-linear Optics, Biophotonics, Spectroscopy, Microscopy & Imaging, Micro- & Nanooptics, Quantum Optics, Optical Sensing & Metrology, Optical System Design, Semiconductor Optics, Fiber Optics, and more.
Why should I participate in DoKDoK?
DoKDoK provides doctoral students the unique chance to closely get in contact with other young researchers. The flat hierarchy creates an innovative and open minded environment to present and discuss achievements and new ideas, as well as difficulties in the scientific work of young researchers. Additionally, the scientific program will be supplemented by keynote lectures from experienced scientists at the top of their fields. Furthermore, company representatives will give insights into job and career opportunities.
