Photonic Integration Conference 2018


Integrated photonics drives next generation semi-conductor business

Photonics is the key enabling technology engine needed to keep the globe communicating and connected in the 21st century. It provides the bandwidth, speed, reach and flexibility needed to run exciting new applications that everyone knows – healthcare & life sciences, internet of things, M2M, social media, big data, datacenters, cloud computing and voice over IP. It’s the most energy efficient technology to scale up all these services.

Join us for a one-day executive conference explaining why integrated photonics is vital to keep our world communicating and connected in the 21st century. We’re bringing the global experts to Eindhoven, the undisputed innovation champion of light technologies.

The conference will take place at the Conference Center High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.

20th European Conference on Integrated Optics – Valencia - 2018


The 2018 European Conference on Integrated Optics (ECIO 2018, www.ecio-2018.org) will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Valencia from the 30th May to the 1st June 2018. The conference focuses on leading edge research on integrated optics, optoelectronics and nano-photonics and gathers experts from academia and industry to show their latest technical results, and showcase their products and services. The application scope is broad and it ranges from tele/datacom communications, optical interconnects, and (bio) optical sensing applications to more disruptive areas as quantum computing and mid-IR photonics . In the 2017 edition, which took place in Eindhoven, the conference featured more than two hundred attendees.

Conference topics cover waveguide technology and platforms, devices and materials, integrated circuits and applications of photonics integrated circuits (PICs). The most recent advances in photonic integration technologies, such as silicon photonics and III-V optoelectronics, is one of the main features of the conference. Assembly, packaging and hybrid integration techniques are also present. In addition, the conference aims to discuss novel concepts on materials with unique properties such as graphene, 2D materials or phase change materials.

The conference has two technical tracks running in parallel and a poster session. Furthermore, several singular events will be organized. The special session “Women in Integrated Optics”chaired by Prof. Laura Lechuga (ICN2, Spain) and Prof. Sonia García Blanco (Univ. Twente, The Netherlands), aims at bringing together the most relevant scientist and professional women in the field. A workshop on “Integrated Photonic Technologies and Applications from Visible to Mid-Infrared” will be also organized by the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC), and chaired by Dr. José Pozo (EPIC).

The industrial exhibitors will showcase their latest products and services, and will be sponsoring young researchers at an early stage of their careers, through best paper and poster awards.

Photonics In Greece: Business Challenges And Opportunities


The Hellenic Photonics cluster (HPhos), is about to organise a public event in the framework of the annual cluster members’ assembly, under the subject: “Photonics in Greece: business challenges and opportunities”.

The event will be held on Tuesday, 27th March 2018, at NEW HOTEL, Athens, at 17:30. The aim of this event is for the Hphos cluster to present themselves and a roadmap towards fulfilment of their strategic goals, to an audience directly or potentially interested in the prospects of photonics-related activities in Greece. Moreover, the event aims in bringing the photonics community closer to various industrial sectors, and set up a discussion on main challenges, industry trends, industry needs on the way to industry digitalisation, financing issues, public policy on related fields (SMEs, clusters, innovation, photonics etc.).

The Hellenic Photonics Cluster (HPhos) comprises a founding core of knowledge-intensive enterprises and research organizations, forming an ecosystem that encourages the transfer of knowledge and expertise. Thus, HPhos aims to create a hotbed for the development of new ideas and innovative products creation and become a critical support infrastructure to new entrepreneurship.
