ETOP (Education and Training in Optics & Photonics) is a biennial conference that brings together educators from around the world to share information about the practice of teaching optics at all levels. The teaching of optics and photonics, critical fields at the core of today's world-wide technological infrastructure, must continually be upgraded and renewed in order to meet the growing demands of research, science and industry.

ETOP-2017, the 14th International Conference on Education and Training in Optics and Photonics, will be held on May 29-31, 2017 in Hangzhou, China.   The goal of ETOP-2017 is to bring together leading optics and photonics educators from all levels and orientations to discuss, demonstrate and learn about new developments and approaches to teaching in these fields. Through presentations, panel discussions, workshops and exhibits, it is the intent of this conference to inform professors, students, teachers and professional trainers on how to teach optics and photonics for the future.

Both oral and poster presentations will be included in the conference program. Internationally leading experts will deliver keynote lectures at the ETOP-2017. It is expected that 300-350 participators from various countries will attend the conference.
