IEEE Photonics Society Announces 2016 Summer Topicals Meeting Series; Issues Call for Papers in Five Areas of "Emerging Technologies for Green Photonics"

Paper submission deadline for the Summer Topicals Meeting Series is 3 April, 2016

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, USA -- The IEEE Photonics Society has announced a Call for Papers for its 2016 Summer Topicals Meeting Series, with the conference theme of “Emerging Technologies for Green Photonics.” The meeting series is one of the premier mid-year technical gatherings for photonics science, technology and research, providing an intimate conference environment for interaction with leading researchers. The Summer Topical Series is unique in that the topics are proposed and organized by volunteers of the IEEE Photonics Society.  The conference will be held 11 - 13 July 2016 at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel in Newport Beach, California, USA.

The 2016 Summer Topicals Meeting Series is seeking original research in the following five topic areas focused the theme of Emerging Technologies for Green Photonics:

• Emerging Technology for Integrated Photonics (ETIP) – covering the latest advances in integrated photonics, including novel materials and devices for integrated electronics/optoelectronics and Si-based mid-wave integrated photonics

• Space-Division Multiplexing and Multimode Photonics (SDMP) – assembles global participants from industry and academia engaged in research related to space-division multiplexing technologies for future high-speed communications

• Nanowire Optoelectronics (NANO) – provides an interdisciplinary discussion of state-of-the-art advances in nanowire materials and their emerging applications in optoelectronics, including solid-state lighting, lasers, quantum optics, communications, photovoltaics, and solar energy harvesting

• Photonic Hardware Accelerators and Brain Inspired Computing (PAHAC) – covers photonic and analog hardware accelerators for realizing energy efficient computing solutions to unfamiliar problems by learning from data and operating with the energy efficiency of the human brain

• Optical Wireless Communication – Latest Trends in Systems and Techniques (OWC) – addresses the latest research in visible light communication, where data communication is piggy-backed on the LED lighting that is making quick entry into our buildings, as well as in infrared communication with beam-steered connection techniques for dedicated high data rate connections.

Paper submissions are currently being accepted, with a paper submission deadline of 3 April 2016. Authors will be notified by the end of April of the status of their paper. Accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplore digital library shortly after the conference, providing worldwide exposure for all authors.  The complete Call for Papers can be found at:
