TU Berlin and Technion Haifa jointly organize and support a two day symposium - funded by the Reinhard Frank Foundation - at TU Berlin on March 30th and 31st, 2015, focusing on key technologies of the 21st century based on the advanced use of photons, a contribution to the UN year of light 2015.
The symposium will address the most pressing issues facing the computer and telecommunication
industries as well as research communities:
The large energy consumption associated with the ever increasing internet use and the lack of efficient renewable energy sources to support it.
Energy harvesting based on latest achievements in photovoltaics, energy efficient data communication and computing together with similar urgent topics addressing challenges of our future green society will be addressed by leading researchers and developers from industrial and government laboratories worldwide.
The symposium will finally present an outlook on the efforts of both leading Technical Universities on developing jointly novel technologies and applications serving our societies in the 21st century. Cooperation of young researchers will be fostered and financially supported in the frame of the network.
All orange marked presentations are available online for conference attendees.

The Green Photonics Symposium takes place in the physics building of the Technische Universität Berlin.
Technische Universität Berlin
10623 Berlin, Germany
The airport is very close to the Main Campus. Take the airport shuttle bus (X9) to Ernst-Reuter Platz (15 minutes) or take a taxi (ca. 10 minutes, ca. 20 €).
This is across the city, so a taxi is expensive unless you can share the costs (ca. 45 minutes, ca. 40 €).
At S-Bahnhof Flughafen Schönefeld take a regional train (RE7, destination Dessau) or S-Bahn (Line 9, destination Pankow, change at Ostkreuz to any train in direction of Zoologischer Garten). Leave the train at Zoologischer Garten. From there you can walk down Hardenbergstrasse (five minutes), take a bus (M45, 245, or X9) or you can stop a taxi and take a fixed rate short ride.
At Central station take a regional train or S-Bahn (any line in direction of Charlottenburg, Westkreuz, Potsdam or Spandau) to Zoologischer Garten. From there you can walk down Hardenbergstrasse (five minutes), take a bus (M45, 245, or X9) or you can stop a taxi and take a fixed rate short ride.
The 1st Green Photonics Symposium 2014 took place at Technion Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute in Haifa on April 23-24, 2014.
