We are pleased to announce the 1st Photonic Integration Week which will be held in Valencia (Spain) at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia from Monday January 16th to Friday January 20th, 2017. It will combine industrial presentations, business to business meetings, scientific and technical speakers and training activities.
The week will start with two Workshops under the framework of the project H2020 PICs4All (Photonic Integration Circuits Accessible to Everyone) -1 day- and the Spanish Network of Excellence PIC4TB (Photonic Integration Circuits for Telecommunications and Bio Sciences) -1.5 days-. Industrial keynote speakers will provide the commercial perspective of use of photonic integration technologies at different positions of the supply chain, from component manufacturers, system integrators and end users of these technologies. Scientific invited speakers will present their latest achievements and prospects of use of these technologies in research and development, and caveats for the design aimed at Bio and Telecom applications will be given in 4 master lessons by the members of the PIC4TB network.
Both Workshops will be followed by a 2.5 days training on the Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) given by the design house VLC Photonics.
