The Photonics Global Conference (PGC) is a biennial event held since 2008. The aim of this conference is to foster interactions among broad disciplines in the photonics family. The conference will provide a platform for international academics, researchers, practitioners and students working in the photonics areas to discuss new developments, concepts and practices, and to identify synergies in research directions that will lead to broader and deeper applications of photonics.  Previous conference attracted about 300 delegates from 32 countries. We were highly honored to have renowned plenary speakers Prof. John Pendry from Imperial College; Prof. Arthur Chiou from National Yang-Ming University; Prof. Alan E. Willner from University of Southern California, Prof. Horst Weber from Technical University Berli , Prof. Federico Capasso from Harvard University and Prof. Stefan Hell from Max-Planck-Institute to share with us their insight and perspectives on current trends, convergence technologies and the strategic updates in our previous conferences. This year we have Prof. David Payne and Nikolay Zheludev from University of Southampton to give plenary talks in Singapore.  We are pleased to announce that the Photonics Global Conference will be held in Singapore from 13 to 16 December, 2012. All major areas in photonics technologies will be covered in talks, along with invited/special sessions. This is an opportunity for researchers around the world to exchange ideas and latest research results in areas such as metamaterial, nanophotonics, biophotonics, plasmonics, optical communication devices/systems and related fields. We look forward to your participation so as to make this conference an exciting and fruitful event. Papers presenting original work in, but not limited to, the following technical symposia are invited for submission.


Special Sessions


Each symposium will issue its own call for papers. Oral and poster presentations are invited and should be submitted to the appropriate symposium or special sessions. The conference will be supplemented by short courses and exhibitions.
