August 30, 2011 — The IEEE Photonics Conference 2011 (previously known as the IEEE LEOS Annual Meeting) takes place October 9-13 in Arlington, VA, will gather more than 550 technical presentations on lasers, optoelectronics, lightwave technologies, and other photonic applications. The event aims to tackle important issues, as well as entice students and young photonics professionals. The conference is complemented by a manufacturer’s exhibition.
Attendees — engineers, suppliers, technologists, and students — work in quantum electronic fields involving light, such as displays, sensors, imaging systems, optics & optoelectronics, photovoltaics, interconnects, microwave and nanophotonic devices and systems, planar waveguide technology, lasers, and more.
The presentations focus on technological advances that will benefit communications, energy conservation, computing, medicine, sensing, displays, and other important areas, noted David Plant, IPC-2011 Program Chair and James McGill Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at McGill University.
Plenary speakers on October 10 and 11, 3:30
