Workshop on Recent Advances in Photonics

Physics Department, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
New Delhi, INDIA
December 17-18, 2013

A two-day Workshop on Recent Advances in Photonics (WRAP2013) is being organized at IIT Delhi with the intent of being a biennial event in India with the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) as a partner. This inaugural workshop is co-sponsored by the IPS and the ongoing Trilateral UK-India-USA project on Terahertz generation through optical methods funded by the UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI), and the Optical Society of India (OSI). The primary purpose of this workshop is to establish a platform for researchers to share and disseminate emerging trends and challenges in Photonics. Through WRAP2013, we aim to motivate photonics research and propel photonics-based innovation by bringing together leading global experts to discuss the field’s most recent advances. Active participation is anticipated from both academia as well as the rapidly expanding Indian photonics industry.


All oral presentations are by invitation only. Speakers who have confirmed their participation include: David Payne (ORC, U of Southampton), Philip Russell (Max Planck Institute for Science of Light, Erlangen), Wolfgang Freude (Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), Govind Agrawal (Institute of Optics, Rochester), Chenupati Jagadish, (Australian National U, Canberra), Atul Srivastava (NEL-America, New Jersey), Siddharth Ramachandran (Boston U), Ajoy Kar (Heriot Watt U Edinburgh), Xingde Li (Johns Hopkins U, Baltimore, MD), Kishan Dholakia (St Andrews U), Azizur Rahman, Ken Grattan and Tong Sun (City U London), Alan Mickelson (U of Colorado Boulder), Ishwar Aggarwal (U of North Carolina at Charlotte), Benjamin Eggleton (U of Sydney, Australia), Guifang Li (CREOL, Florida), Kent D. Choquette, (Univ.of Illinois), X.C. Zhang (Inst.of Optics, Rochester). Additional speakers will be announced later.


Contributory poster papers on any topic related to contemporary Photonics are welcome. Workshop contents will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Two-page paper submissions are to be made in the IEEE format and sent to wrap_2013@yahoo.com . Template for submission of two-page paper click here
