Dear Colleagues,

The 1st International Online Conference on Photonics, centered around the theme of optics and photonics, is scheduled to take place from October 14–16, 2024. This conference aims to highlight and facilitate the utilization of recent advancements in all areas related to optics and photonics, as well as to address complex issues, exchange the latest scientific breakthroughs, and guide the development of future technologies and processes in these fields.

This conference is an excellent opportunity for Optics and Photonics researchers and scientists to interact with each other, communicate with colleagues, learn from each other, share ideas and experiences, jointly solve problems, and suggest alternative solutions for a better future in the Optics and Photonics industry. The main topics of this conference are as follows:
S1. Biophotonics and Biomedical Optics
S2. Optical Communication and Network
S3. Optoelectronics and Optical Materials
S4. Lasers, Light Sources and Sensors
S5. Optical Interaction Science
S6. Quantum Photonics and Technologies
S7. Data-Science Based Techniques in Photonics
S8. New Applications Enabled by Photonics Technologies and Systems

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. All accepted abstracts will be available online in Open Access form on during and after the conference. Participants have the chance to win four highly coveted Best Oral Presentation Awards and Best Poster Presentation Awards, with prize money.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I welcome your attendance at the 1st International Online Conference on Photonics.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the authors' responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflicts of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.


MDPI, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting an abstract to this conference, you retain the copyright to the work, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this abstract online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your full paper (with the abstract) to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher if required.
