The Virtual Photonics Technology Initiative has hosted lectures, workshops and short courses at UCI Beckman Laser Institute over the past 15 years. These events were attended in person by students, guest speakers and industry professionals from around the world. The workshops and short courses were recorded and these videos along with the slides and lab exercises are available publicly on the Virtual Photonics Education website.
The intent of the workshops and short courses is to provide relative newcomers to the field of Biophotonics with fundamental knowledge of radiative transport modeling and computation. These events have been held over 3-5 days and consist of didactic lectures, interactive software laboratory sessions, and guest speakers who provide case studies for the practical uses of computational biophotonics algorithms and tools.
