SAN DIEGO, USA: The world's foremost photonics scientists, engineers and researchers will gather in San Diego, CA for the IEEE Photonics Conference 2014 (IPC-2014), the photonics industry's premier fall conference.
The comprehensive technical program will include presentations that detail the latest breakthroughs in lasers, optoelectronics, optical fiber networks and lightwave technologies by leading researchers from industry, academia and government. Scheduled for 12 - 16 October, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, CA, the conference was previously known as the IEEE LEOS Annual Meeting.
The conference is anticipated to include more than 500 technical papers, four invited plenary talks on leading-edge photonics areas, a panel discussion on metamaterials, as well as a series of three Special Symposia designed to explore emerging photonics topics, a short course and several tutorial sessions.
There will also be several social events, including an opening reception, a workshop featuring IEEE Photonics Society publication editors and a special reception for Women in Photonics, as well as a manufacturers' exhibition.
"This year's Photonics Conference is once again the IEEE Photonics Society's showcase event for the latest breakthrough developments in photonics technology, their novel applications and future directions," said Dr. Thomas Clark, IPC-2014 Program chair and supervisor of the Microwave Photonics Section at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
"The conference provides a unique combination of industry-leading research, in-depth educational and professional development opportunities, and the chance for attendees to interact with leading photonics professionals from around the world."
