The paper is a digest of work presented during a cyclic Ph.D. student symposium on Photonics and Web Engineering
WILGA 2009. Symposium is organized by ISE PW in cooperation with professional organizations IEEE, SPIE, PSP
and KEiT PAN. There are presented mainly Ph.D. and M.Sc. theses as well as achievements of young researchers.
These papers, presented in such a big number, more than 250 in some years, are in certain sense a good digest of the
condition of academic research capabilities in this branch of science and technology. The undertaken research subjects
for Ph.D. theses in electronics is determined by the interest and research capacity (financial, laboratory and intellectual)
of the young researchers and their tutors. Basically, the condition of academic electronics research depends on financing
coming from applications areas. During Wilga 2009 there were organized, and thus the paper debates, the following
topical sessions concerning applications of advanced electronics and photonics systems: merging of electronic systems
and photonics, Internet engineering, distributed measurement systems, security in information technology, astronomy
and cosmic technology, HEP experiments, environment protection, image processing and biometry. The paper contains
also more general remarks concerning the workshops organized by and for the Ph.D. students in advanced photonics
and electronics systems.
