About the conference

First held in 1995, the purpose of this international conference is to provide a forum for an update and review of a wide range of lasers and electro-optics disciplines from device development to systems engineering and applications. The meeting also serves to stimulate the use of more mature optical technologies in other fields.


The 2017 conference will take place 31 July - 4 August 2017 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore and will be co-located with the 22nd OptoElectronics and Communications Conference (OECC 2017) and the 5th Photonics Global Conference 2017 (PGC 2017).
