Over the years, a couple of formal aspects have crystallized as being typical for the OWTNM "format":
Necessarily, the specifics of each new event will depend largely on the preferences and choices of the local organizers, on constraints imposed by the yearly changing location, on a collocated conference, or on other internal or external influences.
The first International Workshop on Optical Waveguide Theory and Numerical Modelling was held in Teupitz, Germany, in 1992. Since then, the annual conference has moved across Europe, with one detour to Australia:
