In conjunction with IEEE, the Optical Interconnects organizing committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus). The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to be a pandemic, many governments have enacted travel bans and numerous state and local governments are prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings.
The safety and well-being of our conference participants, authors, and speakers are our priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we have evaluated alternate options for the Optical Interconnects (OI) 2020 conference.
After discussions with IEEE Photonics Society, it has been decided to postpone OI and include the full conference program during the society’s flagship conference, the IEEE Photonics Conference (IPC).
IPC will now be held as a virtual conference during its originally planned dates, 27 September – 1 October 2020. We hope you will be able to participate in IPC 2020!
