Welcome from the Chair

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 Sciforum.net 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.

Kind regards,

DETAILS
Bio
Huabei Jiang started his career as an Assistant Professor at Clemson University in 1997, and became a full Professor there in 2003. He then joined University of Florida (UF) in 2005 as a founding senior faculty of then newly established biomedical engineering department and became the J. Crayton Pruitt Family endowed professor in 2008 at UF. Dr. Jiang joined University of South Florida (USF) in 2017 as a founding faculty of medical engineering department and the founding Director of USF Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging. In his career, Professor Jiang has used optics in highly innovative ways to make pioneering and seminal contributions to several fields including diffuse optical tomography (DOT), photoacoustic tomography (PAT), fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT), and bioluminescence tomography (BLT). He has published nearly 500 peer-reviewed articles, and is the author of four noteworthy books (all were the first books in their respective fields): Diffuse Optical Tomography: Principles and Applications (CRC Press, 2010), Photoacoustic Tomography (CRC Press, 2014), Thermoacoustic Tomography: Principles and Applications (IOP Publishing, 2020), and Fluorescence Molecular Tomography: Principles and Applications (Springer, 2022). Professor Jiang was elected as Fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) in 2008, Fellow of International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) in 2007, and Fellow of Optical Society of America (OSA) in 2006. Outside of his research/teaching, Huabei enjoys practicing Chinese Calligraphy and paintings (ink/color pencil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and oil). He had two one-person exhibitions of his artworks in July 2019 and August 2023, respectively, in Chengdu, China, and has won multiple awards in several international art competitions since 2021.

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.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net 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 Sciforum.net 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.
