Dear Colleague

We are building a significant conference for Silicon Photonics! We have already secured some great international keynote speakers amongst an impressive invited programme. Now all we need to do is build the poster session.

Led by the teams from the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton and the UK and Ireland Chapter of the IEEE Photonics Society, this meeting includes contributions from companies currently utilising silicon photonics technologies as well as key UK research and development groups.

The Enlighten Conference has established itself as one of the most important forums of debate for the international photonics and light technologies community. Scientists from across the globe will discuss the very latest in photonics applications, advances, innovations and emerging technologies.

The conference provides a strong educational backdrop for co-located Photonex Europe. Running this conference alongside a significant exhibition of latest photonics technologies provides an additional benefit for delegates and a great opportunity to collaborate with fellow colleagues and suppliers on an unprecedented scale.
