Make plans to participate

SPIE/COS Photonics Asia has established itself as the premier international conference for optics and photonics technologies in China. These conferences and proceedings now play a critical role in scientific research development for a range of optical engineering professionals. In order to meet the needs of the international research community, Photonics Asia will now convene every year in October to explore advanced optical technologies and enable future scientific discovery.

With important research and development projects underway in Asia and around the world, there is a growing demand for international exchange and collaboration. Local industry growth means that China is the center of rapid technology advancements and some significant breakthroughs in fundamental research science. This symposium is an international forum for the reporting and review of new developments in optics and photonics and showcases advancements in quantum and nonlinear optics, high-power lasers, optics in health care, advanced optical design and imaging, nanophotonics, plasmonics, infrared/terahertz, sensor systems, and more. 

Cutting-edge technologies, applications, product announcements and demonstrations will be discussed in conference sessions and product exhibitions. The technical program includes a plenary session with visionary speakers, parallel technical sessions on critical technologies, a networking banquet, and an interactive poster session. This year's event will return to 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 join us in Beijing and see what is happening in this exciting environment.
