    July, 1-3 Our Chapter participated in the Summer School on Optics and Photonics (Oulu,

    Finland). According to the results of the competition committee work, a poster by the representative of our Chapter, Irina Makovik, was awarded the prize for the best poster among all the works submitted for the contest.

    July, 8 We worked for a long time to create our corporate logo, which would include both the symbol of our beloved city and the symbol of SPIE. After long and heated discussions, we reached a unanimous decision. The logo shows an eagle (Orel is an eagle in English) in the laser warning symbol. Adviser is satisfied!

    Planned Activities for the Future:

    Next year we plan to continue our last year's activities. In addition, we intend to increase the number of educational events, for example, a series of lectures on optics and photonics for students of local schools, popular science lectures for anyone interested. More seminars and workshops are planned for students studying disciplines related to photonics at our university. In addition to science popularization, we are engaged in purely scientific activities. We plan to hold interdisciplinary meetings with physicians, pharmacists, biotechnologists and scientists of other specializations.
