The IEEE Photonics Society is mindful of the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The health and safety of the Photonics Society community is our first priority.

Our staff and volunteer leaders/organizers are in the process of exploring all possible options for our conference format. You will be notified about the next steps as soon as decisions are made.

We are committed to providing a platform to deliver the conference, and we encourage the community to participate in IPC by submitting papers with the latest breakthroughs. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncertain times for all in our global community.
