Home > Press > IEEE Photonics Conference To Spotlight Breakthroughs In Many Lightwave-Related Technologies

Abstract:
The unveiling of breakthroughs in photonics—the use of light waves in electronic systems as opposed to electrical currents and voltages—will top the agenda when the world's leading technologists in the field convene in the Seattle area this September for the annual IEEE Photonics Conference (IPC-2013), formerly called the IEEE LEOS Annual Meeting.

IEEE Photonics Conference To Spotlight Breakthroughs In Many Lightwave-Related Technologies

Seattle, WA | Posted on June 28th, 2013

Some 600 scientists, engineers and technical managers will gather from September 8-12 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue Hotel for an IPC-2013 program of invited talks, paper presentations, panel sessions, special symposia, networking opportunities, and a product showcase.

Since 1988, the IEEE Photonics Conference and its predecessor the IEEE LEOS Annual Meeting have been the premier autumn gatherings for the presentation and discussion of research in photonics technologies and applications, including: lasers, biophotonics, displays, photodetectors, sensors, imaging systems, integrated optics, photovoltaics, optoelectronics, interconnects, microwave and nanophotonic devices and systems, non-linear and ultrafast optics, optical fiber communications, planar waveguide technology and optoelectronic materials.

This year's conference comes in the wake of the launch this spring of the National Photonics Initiative, a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government experts seeking to raise awareness of the impact of photonics on our everyday lives, and of the field's compelling business opportunities, as well as the potential barriers to growth. "While more than a thousand companies have sprung up in recent years to produce the photonics devices and systems we all depend on, there's a need to overcome financial and other barriers to growth in order to enable continuing progress, and that's what this initiative is all about" said Richard Linke, executive director of the IEEE Photonics Society, sponsor of IPC-2013 and co-sponsor of the National Photonics Initiative along with four other leading industry groups.

"The IEEE Photonics Conference represents a fusion of cutting-edge scientific research and leading industrial innovations for photonics engineers, technologists and suppliers from around the world," said Dr. Martin Dawson, IPC-2013 Program Chair and Professor and Director of Photonics Research at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland. "Thought-provoking technical talks, numerous special events and a product exhibition will provide attendees with the insights and ideas they need to advance the use of light to address many of today's most important technological challenges."

Highlights of the IPC-2013 program include:

Plenary Sessions
- Lab-on-Chip and Point-of-Care Applications of Silicon Photonics by Roel G. Baets, Ghent University/IMEC
- Microwave Quantum Optics in Superconducting Circuits by Yasunobu Nakamura, University of Tokyo
- The Flexibility of Coherent Optical Transceivers by Kim Roberts, Ciena
- Digital Cameras in Bio-Inspired Designs: From Humans to Flies by John Rogers, University of Illinois

Tutorial Speakers
Tutorial talks, which provide a broad view of a photonics field starting from the basics, have been scheduled at various times throughout the conference on these topics:
- Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers by Ivan Andonovic, University of Strathclyde
- VCSELs for Green High Performance Computers and Computer Interconnects by Dieter Bimberg, TU Berlin
- Photonic Microwave-to-Digital Conversion by Thomas Clark, Johns Hopkins University
- Optical Sensors in Life Science and Medicine by Brian T. Cunningham, UIUC
- Tutorial on Optical Micromanipulation by Kishan Dholakia, University of St Andrews
- Nonlinear Propagation Effects in Multimode Transmission by Antonio Mecozzi, University d'Aquila

Panel Sessions and Special Symposia
- There will be two panel discussions on Sunday, September 8: Silicon Photonics and Photonics in the Pacific Northwest
- There will be three Special Symposia at various times during the conference on the following topics: Optical Data Storage, Optogenetics and The Internet of Things

Post-Deadline Papers
A limited number of exceptional and timely papers reporting the latest breakthroughs may be submitted as post-deadline papers. They must be submitted to the Speaker Check-In Desk onsite by 9 a.m. on September 9. The purpose of post-deadline papers is to enable participants to hear new and significant material in rapidly advancing areas. See http://www.ipc-ieee.org/call-for-papers.

Supplier Exhibits and Sponsorships
Supplier exhibits are included as an integral part of IPC-2013, and the conference also offers a variety of financial sponsorship opportunities to those who wish to highlight their offerings to this highly targeted audience of industry professionals. These sponsorships can be either pre-defined or individualized. For sponsorship information, registration questions and other event information, visit www.ipc-ieee.org or contact:
