At Lucid we attend many conferences and exhibitions, and we have listed here the events that we find useful that are applicable to the fibre optics, laser safety and communications cabling industry.
The picture opposite was taken at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) in Copenhagen, Denmark, and shows the Bella Centre where the conference and exhibition was held. John Colton attended the conference for Lucid.
Lucid have again teamed-up with Avoptics & JSC Aeroptics to offer a special training event covering the theory, practice and standards involved in implementing fibre optics on aircraft and other aerospace and harsh environment applications.

FIA Summer Seminar Event
The Fibreoptic Industry Association (FIA) held a very successful first summer seminar event in Oxford in 2010. The success of this first event has convinced the FIA board that this should be an anual get-together with interesting topics presented and ample networking opportunities. The next event is planned for May or June 2011 and further details will be posted here soon.
Fibre Optics in Harsh Environments
This is a conference of growing importance from its launch in 2009 to the larger and very interesting 2010 event in Swindon. More information at www.fohec.co .uk.
OFMC - Optical Fibre Measurement Conference
Traditionally this conference has been held every 2 years, mostly in the UK but occassionally at other European host venues. The last conference was in 2009, but we don't yet have any information on whether a conference is planned for 2011. Click here for more information OFMC website ....

Optoelectronic Technologies for the Oil & Gas Industry
The first event was held in 2009, with the second held in November 2010. Both events have been held in Aberdeen the main home of the UK oil and gas industry, and as successful events it is expected there will be another event in 2011. We will put the details here when they are available.
