OPTOmism announces call for papers

NASHUA, NH and WASHINGTON, DC—OPTOmism: Photonics for the Green Revolution, to be held jointly by Laser Focus World and the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, May 18–20, 2009, has announced its call for papers.

NASHUA, NH and WASHINGTON, DC—OPTOmism: Photonics for the Green Revolution, to be held jointly by Laser Focus World and the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, May 18–20, 2009, has announced its call for papers.

“OPTOmism Conference & Exhibition is the only event devoted to green photonics … and more than a solar or lighting event,” says Michael Lebby, OIDA president and CEO. “The green photonic components market will exceed $100 billion by 2010. No other event will include a collection of these technologies and the people who deploy them. This is a must-attend show for optoelectronics companies promoting a ‘green’ theme.”

From highly efficient solid-state lighting to clean manufacturing employing laser processing, and from new low-power display and communications technologies to photovoltaic energy generation, the conference will cover multiple segments of the photonics industry that will deliver solutions to enable greater efficiency, smaller carbon footprints while promoting economic growth.

Benefits of presenting

At OPTOmism, you will have the opportunity to speak to senior industry executives, researchers, engineers, and investors as well as have an opportunity to examine ‘green’ technologies, explore their business implications, and review technology roadmaps. In addition, your presentation will be included in our comprehensive pre-show direct marketing campaign and published in the OPTOmism Online Proceedings, a new source of influential, rapidly published, cutting-edge research.

We are seeking practical papers on the application of photonic technologies to sustainable development. In addition, we welcome presentations addressing key marketing developments in getting products to the green market space.

Abstracts are being accepted in the following areas:

  • —Solid-state lighting
  • —Solar photovoltaics
  • —High-efficiency displays
  • —High-efficiency communications and computing
  • —Photonic sensing for energy efficiency management (grid monitoring, smart building)
  • —Photonic sensing for energy resource management (oil recovery)
  • —Photonic sensing for energy efficient systems (combustion, turbines)
  • —Efficient manufacturing
  • —New and novel photonics developments for sustainable applications
