SPIE/COS Photonics Asia showcases the power of photonics technologies and applications. Photonics and optical science and engineering are becoming increasingly important as society gradually moves from electron-based to photon-based technologies and industries. Specifically, photonics is becoming increasingly important in health care and medicine, nanotechnologies, environment and energy, manufacturing, information systems and communications, displays, defense and aerospace, entertainment and multimedia, energy and green lighting, etc. China is the fastest growing market for the global optics and photonics industries.

Since 2001, SPIE/COS Photonics Asia has been the must-attend event for the global photonics community who need to keep current with what is happening in the Asian optics and photonics industries, and for developing new partnerships and new markets within and around China. Many Asian countries are investing heavily to transition from microelectronics-dominated to photonics-based industries. Asian economies are becoming more and more important to the health of the global economy in the 21st century, and Asian Photonics markets are rapidly expanding. SPIE/COS Photonics Asia 2016 will provide a unique forum for the reporting and review of new developments in photonics and optoelectronics ranging from material and devices to advanced systems and applications. Cutting-edge technologies, applications, product announcements and demonstrations, market analysis and investment opportunities will be discussed in various conference sections and product exhibitions. SPIE/COS Photonics Asia includes a plenary session with visionary speakers, parallel technical sessions, a social banquet, and an interactive poster session/reception. This year's event will be held at the Beijing International Convention Center, in the heart of Beijing in a very convenient location.

SPIE/COS Photonics Asia is a pivotal technical event for the optics and photonics technical community. You are encouraged to attend.
