2024 EFTS

The 2024 EFTS is already full, but...

It is our tradition that the EFTS is updated and repeated every year at the end of June or at the beginning of July. The next will probably be from June 30 to July 4, but the final choice will be made by the Scientific Council later this Summer.

If you want to stay tuned, email us at frequency-time-seminar [at] femto-st.fr.

  • You will be informed as soon as we start planning the EFTS 2025
  • You expect no more than two newsletters per year.

The 12th European Frequency and Time Seminar

Besancon, France, from Monday, July 1-5, 2024

saphir_medium.jpg The EFTS is a nonprofit intensive full-week seminar intended to provide education and training with lectures and lab sessions. It targets the broadest audience: Engineers, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows, young scientists, newcomers, etc.

This seminar is unique in the following:

  • Broad spectrum of topics related to time and frequency
  • Balance between academic and applied issues
  • Broad target audience, yet keeping high level education
  • Lab sessions. The participants work themselves in small groups with a wide range of instruments made available.

The high level of training is guaranteed by the world-class Scientific Council and lecturers from the major European and International Institutions

The EFTS is held every year at the beginning of Summer at the FEMTO-ST Institute.


Registrations open at the beginning of February, visit the Registration and Policy page
As registrations open, you may need to rush. We have a limited number of places, set by the laboratory sessions, and they are usually booked quite soon.

Open Learning Resources


The EFTS can happen only thanks to the good will and to the voluntary work of numerous people. None of us is paid for this additional burden, and sometimes lecturers choose to travel on their own research grants. As the intellectual pursuits of academia are largely in the realm of the gift economy, by far the greatest reward is found in the appreciation of one's work by one's colleagues.

The EFTS is kindly hosted by SUPMICROTECH ENSMM. See the Thanks page for more.
