Welcome Message

On behalf of the organizing committee, we wish to extend a warm welcome to all of you to the 11th edition of the International Conference on Optical and Photonic Engineering (icOPEN), initiated and conducted under the auspices of the Optics and Photonics Society of Singapore (OPSS).

Since 2008, OPSS has been promoting Optics and Photonics in Singapore through interaction between academia and industry, and actively participating in regional conferences and exhibitions. In recent years, OPSS has spearheaded the establishment of societies in various ASEAN countries, creating a dynamic community in the field.

The International Conference on Optical and Photonic Engineering (icOPEN) stands as a testament to our commitment to this field. Since its inception in 2011, icOPEN has steadily grown to become a prominent fixture in the Optical and Photonic Engineering calendar. Traditionally alternating between Singapore and China, it has evolved to include our ASEAN neighbours, with Thailand hosting the event in 2019.

In the face of challenges, such as the pandemic-induced hiatus, we’ve continued to adapt and innovate. The most recent edition of icOPEN was an online event organized in Nanjing in 2022. And the last event was finally physically held in Singapore in 2023. I hope you enjoyed colleagues and friends meeting again after so long. Now, we are delighted to announce this year the return of the physical conference back to China in Foshan. This is an exciting opportunity for colleagues from around the world to not only showcase their cutting-edge research and exchange ideas but also to rekindle old friendships and forge new connections in a nurturing environment.

Together, we will explore the frontiers of Optical and Photonic Engineering, foster collaboration, and strengthen the bonds of our global community. Get ready for the inspiration, innovation, and camaraderie.

Welcome to Foshan, China and the icOPEN2024. Hope you have a fruitful and successful event.
