European Optical Society board elections.

The European Optical Society has recently held elections for its board members. Matthieu Roussey, Michael Pfeffer, and Gilles Pauliat have been elected to the board, and Mario Bertolotti has been re-elected for a second term.

The board members will assume their position on the board at the EOS biennial meeting, EOSAM in Delft, Netherlands from 8 to 12 October.

The election officers, on behalf of the president and executive committee of the European Optical Society, would like to thank all the candidates and to congratulate those who have been elected.

Matthieu Roussey currently works as an associate professor in experimental photonics, leading the Integrated Optics Group at the University of Eastern Finland, Institute of Photonics, Joensuu, Finland. He is also the associate editor of the Journal of the European Optical Society: Rapid Publication (JEOS:RP).

His main research interests are in the fields of waveguide optics, nano-photonics, and integrated optics.

Mario Bertolotti was full professor of Physics and Optics at the University of Roma, La Sapienza, Rome, Italy from 1970 to 2008. He is now retired. He is a specialist in lasers, quantum electronics, quantum optics, nonlinear optics, nano-optics, and radiation damage in semiconductors.

Professor Bertolotti was a member of the board of EOS during the early years of the society and has been editor of the Journal of Pure and Applied Optics and of the society's online journal JEOS:RP.

Michael Pfeffer teaches and researches in the field of optics, physical instrument design and nanotechnology, and currently serves as vice-rector of the Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten at the University of Applied Science.

Within the European Optical Society he was active in various bodies and positions, such as the Scientific Advisory Board (2008-2012), secretary of the board (20122014), and in the programme committee of EOSAM 2014 in Berlin. Furthermore, he is editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Advanced Optical Society.

Gilles Pauliat leads a group at Institut d'Optique, France, whose research focuses on nonlinear optics in micro-structured materials.

He has been continuously involved in the building of our optics community. His commitment for EOS never failed since the early 90s when he contributed to the launch of the EOS focus group Optics in Computing. He served as chairman in EOS topical meetings. He is associate editor of the EOS journal, and promoted the creation of EOS student clubs in France. He is also presently the treasurer of EOS.
