International Conference on Group IV Photonics will feature advancements in silicon photonics The 10th International Conference on Group IV Photonics (GFP 2013) will feature presentations spanning a broad range of topics focused on silicon photonics and other Group IV element-based photonic materials and devices. Professionals from industry, academia, and government around the world will gather from August 28-30, 2013 for the GFP 2013 conference, held for the first time in Seoul, Korea at the Grand Hilton Seoul. Planned as a single-track conference, GFP 2013 will feature both oral and poster sessions of contributed and invited papers focused on silicon photonics and other Group IV element-based photonic materials, applications, and manufacturing technology. In addition, a post-deadline session will feature the most up-to-date results involving Group IV element photonic materials and devices, including integration and fabrication technologies. Some of the major topic areas will include: Electro-Photonic Convergence on Silicon: mainstreaming industrial Si photonics; optical interconnect technology, including light sources, modulators, and detectors; technology platforms, design tools/rules, and industrial fabrication concerns. Novel Materials and Structure: novel materials and material combinations, and/or structures generating scientific interest; graphene, complex oxides, photonic crystals, gratings, as well as plasmonics and its hybrids. Photonic Devices and Nanophotonics: devices and systems that are at the stage of focusing on real applications but do not necessarily need/require integration with electronics; couplers, (bio) sensors, Si photonics for telecom applications. A supplier exhibition and a range of sponsorship opportunities are available for participating companies to promote awareness, discuss the latest new products, interact with customers and develop new sales contacts. Individualized sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact conference planner Megan Figueroa at +1 732 562 3895 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
