European Photonic Integration Forum (EPIF)

September 25 @ 17:30 - 19:00

Once again, JePPIX has joined forces with ePIXfab to organize the 15th edition of the European Photonic Integration Forum (EPIF). EPIF takes place during ECOC, on Wednesday, September 25, from 17:30 until 19:00. The location will be one of the six ‘Harmonie’ rooms on the first floor of the Congress Center Messe Frankfurt.

This year’s event will revolve around technology hypes. Can quantum, LiDAR and AI be qualified as such? How do hype cycles shape the photonics industry and startup landscape? And what have we learned from the dot.com bubble? EPIF will be moderated by Kevin Williams (JePPIX) and Wim Bogaerts (ePIXfab) and will enjoy contributions from several well-known profiles in the integrated photonics industry.

17:30 – 17:35: Introduction JePPIX & ePIXfab
