IEEE Photonics Conference 2012 announces Call for Papers

(Nanowerk News) The IEEE Photonics Conference 2012 (IPC-2012), previously known as the IEEE LEOS Annual Meeting, announces a Call for Papers seeking innovative, original work in the areas listed below. The conference will be held 23 - 27 September, 2012 in the San Francisco Bay area, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel in Burlingame.
The IEEE Photonics Conference is the premier autumn gathering for scientists and engineers in the areas of lasers, optoelectronics, optical fiber networks and associated lightwave technologies, as well as other applications of Photonics. More than 500 technical papers will be presented along with compelling plenary talks on the industry's most important issues, weekend events aimed at students and other photonics professionals, and a product exhibition.
The paper submission deadline is 11 May, 2012 and papers will be accepted beginning 6 April. Authors will be notified by 22 June of the status of their paper. The complete Call for Papers can be found at
Papers are invited in the following areas:
  • Biophotonics
  • Displays & Lighting
  • High Power/Intensity Sources
  • Microwave Photonics
  • Nanophotonics
  • Non-Linear and Ultrafast Optics
  • Optical Communications
  • Optical Fiber Technology
  • Optical Interconnects
  • Optical Networks & Systems
  • Photodetectors, Sensors, Systems & Imaging
  • Photonic Integration and Packaging
  • Photonic Materials Science & Technology
  • Semiconductor Lasers
  • Quantum Photonics
  • Optical Microresonators & Novel Phenomena
  • III-V on Si for Silicon Photonics
  • Photovoltaics based on Plasmonics and Nanophotonics
  • Sunday Events
    The conference will feature several events on Sunday, 23 September. These include the IEEE Photonics Society GOLD (Graduates Of The Last Decade) Session which is an opportunity for graduate students and young professionals to interact with peers, to take part in GOLD-organized activities, and to establish connections in the photonics community.
    A celebration of the anniversary of the 50th anniversary of the semiconductor laser also is planned for that Sunday. The first operational semiconductor laser was made in 1962 by Robert Hall and his associates at the General Electric Co. laboratories in Schenectady, NY.
