European Conference on Integrated Optics

19 April 2023 - 21 April 2023

The European Conference on Integrated Optics focuses on leading edge research on integrated optics, optoelectronics and nano-photonics and gathers experts from academia and industry to show their latest technical results, and showcase their products and services. The application scope is broad and it ranges from tele/datacom communications, optical interconnects, and (bio) optical sensing applications to more disruptive areas as quantum computing and mid-IR photonics.

JePPIX and ePIXfab jointly organize the plenary exhibition session (17:15 – 18:30) and panel discussion (18:30 – 19:30) on Wednesday, April 19. Given the fact that many players in the integrated photonics industry struggle to fill up vacancies and that many of the ECIO attendees are PhD-students, the exhibition session and panel discussion will focus on career development: what opportunities are there for graduates moving to industry?; what does a career in photonics entail? The event will be moderated by Roel Baets (ePIXfab) and Kevin Williams (JePPIX).

The program is as follows:
17:15 – 18:30:
Opening of the exhibition session with short pitches by the exhibitors. The pitches will be alternated with 1 minute videos that were recorded at OFC. In these videos, prominent people in the field of integrated photonics provide an answer to the question: “If you had the opportunity to be at the start of your career again and choose a PhD topic, what would you choose and why?”
18:30 – 19:30: Interactive panel discussion with selected exhibitors on career-related subjects
From 19:30:
