19 - 23 September 2005
Seattle, Washington USA
The International Conference on Lightning and Static Electricity (ICOLSE) is concerned with all aspects of lightning interaction with ground, air and sea systems. The conference is one of a series, which occur approximately bi-annually and aims to encourage a real understanding of atmospheric electricity environmental hazards. A full program of papers on topics from phenomenology, through measurement, design, protection, testing and computational modeling will be presented. Authors come from across Europe, USA and Canada, from Russia, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
The 2003 ICOLSE introduced Kerauno Medicine, i.e. the effects on humans arising from direct or near-by lightning strikes. This stream, continues for 2005 and is again being organized by the Australian medical doctor and engineer, Dr. Chris Andrews.
A new topic added this year is the development of composite materials and the effects of lightning on materials. This topic is being organized by materials engineer, Arlene M. Brown, The Boeing Company.
The ICOLSE 2005 Conference will be hosted by The Boeing Company

BIOPHOTONICS: From Fundamental Principles to Health, Environment,Security and Defense Applications, NATO Advanced Study Institute
This Advanced Study Institute was organized in order to build a creative advanced biophotonics research and training environment by bringing together world experts, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from both industry and university research organizations. The emerging nature of the biophotonics field, its multi-disciplinary character as well as its significant importance to contemporary society require the combination of a deep fundamental understanding of optics, photonics, biology and medicine, familiarization with a large spectrum of advanced engineering technologies, and a collaborative spirit of creativeness and innovation.
The STCU delegation included eleven experts and, in addition to BIOPHOTONICS ASI, participated in: Photonics North 2004 Trade Show, meetings with Canadian SME, and NATO Advanced Research Workshop: Frontiers in Planar Lightwave Circuit Technology.
