In the past, the organizers have been top international universities, but this time Modulight has been given the honor of organizing the event. "We are grateful for the responsibility we have been given to manage such a prestigious congress. We are known in the industry for our outstanding capabilities and our exceptional reputation for long-term, high-quality research. The project itself has demanded a lot from us and coordinating a major event in just 9 months has been an interesting challenge. However, everything is ready, and it is a pleasure to welcome the international scientists and our many partners to Tampere", says Seppo Orsila, Managing Director of Modulight.
Congress Chair and University of Toronto Professor Lothar Lilge praises Modulight: "It was a true pleasure working with the friendly staff of Modulight to bring this event to life here in Tampere.
