Travel & Safety Guidelines

COVID-19 Update

Optical Interconnects is scheduled to take place as planned, 9-11 June 2020.

The Photonics Society recognizes the challenges faced by our members, customers and partners as a result of restrictions on large gatherings and travel imposed worldwide due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and your safety is our first priority. We are closely monitoring any specific travel advisories through official channels which include the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. State Department.

We are in the process of exploring all possible options for our conference registrants and presenters.  You will be notified about next steps as soon as decisions are made by our staff and volunteer leaders/organizers. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncertain times for all in our global community.

Before traveling to the conference, we recommend that you stay informed of any information your local health agencies may make available and take reasonable precautions to protect yourself. IEEE continues to closely monitor this dynamic situation and will provide updates with any developments.
