Nonlinear Waves and Turbulence in Photonics 2022

Weierstrass Institute Berlin, July 13-15, 2022

Announcement, scientific scope and program

Thank you all for participating! Here our conference picture.

The workshop "Nonlinear Waves and Turbulence in Photonics" (NWTP22) will bring together leading experts in the field of nonlinear optics and photonics. The workshop's guiding idea is to provide an international platform which leads to a more comprehensive understanding of fundamental nonlinear phenomena, such as wave-turbulence, solitons, and extreme waves. We expect exciting reports and fruitful discussions both on the most recent advances in the field and promising future developments.

The program is now online.


Wearing a FPP2 mask during the event is mandatory, except for the speaker and during the catering.

We will provide you with three FFP2-masks.
