Abstract submission deadline has been extended: please submit your abstract by 30 April 2020


Photon 2020 is the major Optics and Photonics conference organised by the Institute of Physics in the UK and the tenth in the biennial series that started in 2002.

Over four days, Photon participants will have the opportunity to visit exhibitions on the latest in optics and photonics technology, attend lectures from experts in the field, and get up to date with cutting-edge research.

The programme will consist of plenary and invited talks, as well as contributed presentations and posters.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the abstract submission deadline has been pushed back to 30 April 2020.

Please note that this event is still scheduled to go ahead and registration remains open. Should the situation change, the IOP will honour all bookings and refund any fees already paid.
