The tentative program schedule is the following:

The following speakers have already accepted to give a tutorial: Guy Verschaffelt (VUB, BE), Fabrice Raineri (CNRS, F), Michael Strain (Institute of photonics in Strathclyde, UK), Roy Taylor (Imperial College, London , UK), Andrea Fiore (TU Eindhoven, NL), Femius Koenderink (Amolf, NL), Lieven Penninck (Fluxim AG, Winterthur, CH), Youri Meuret (KaHO Sint-Lieven, Gent, BE) .
