Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Mexican Meeting of Optics and Photonics: "MOPM 2021".
Since our last meeting in 2019, it is indisputable that there have been many changes in the world. The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 changed the way we see the world and, thus, how we interact and investigate. It is also indisputable that science and technology in Mexico and the world have continued advancing despite significant obstacles. To face these challenges, we have learned to work and collaborate remotely.
This new way of working, which in some way will continue to be present, has not prevented the advancement and, especially, the progress of Optics and Photonics in Mexico and the world.
For this reason, we are pleased to announce that MOPM2021 will be carried out remotely and synchronously. Of course, we know that it is difficult to replace the face-to-face experience, but AMO, INAOE, and FACMED_UNAM have developed and adopted a platform in which this remote experience promises to offer a platform to interact and network.
We will be enjoying three days of plenary speakers who are experts in Optics and Photonics from Mexico and the world. Our speakers will share their scientific and technological achievements and progress during recent years. Additionally, we will have poster presentations in which the authors will show their findings and will have the opportunity to network with attendants.
We hope you enjoy this new work experience that the AMO Steering Board has prepared for you.
Dr. Eduardo Tepichin Rodríguez
Chairman of the AMO Steering Board 2021-2022
