OPIC2016 OverView

OBJECTIVE of OPIC 2016

The objective of OPIC2016 is to discuss on the scope for the future society realized by optics and photonics based on the most updated knowledge and technologies worldwide presented at OPIC2016 and OPIE`16 (OPTICS and PHOTONICS International Exhibition 2016).

OPIC/OPIE, started in April 2012 at the Pacifico Yokohama, is the only annual international event on optics and photonics in Japan held under close cooperation of academia and industry, with OPIC2016 the 5-th Congress to be held in 2016. OPIC is composed of Specialized International Conferences on various specific fields, covering broad range of fields overall which are very active at this time. The number of the Specialized International Conferences of OPIC as well as the number of the participants have been increasing year by year.

With 2015 being designated as the International Year of Light and Light based Technologies (IYL), OPIC2015 was held with IYL’s expectation that light and laser technology will continue to become major core components within the scientific industry. OPIC2016 will continue to support these ideals and express the importance of light and light based technologies as global solutions for sustainable development across the world. OPIC2016 will feature conferences held in cooperation with leading researchers from across the globe in order to share and review information across an international community, which will be further aided by the network of industrial and academic personnel present at the co-located OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Exhibition (OPIE`16).
