IWPPI2018 will provide the attractive fields to exchange the latest advances and ideas not only in photonics polymers and related materials but also photonics devices and applications. IWPPI2018 looks for scientific interaction and collaboration to create innovative progresses in our life. We encourage you to submit many abstracts.


Topics to be covered in the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

A. Fiber, Waveguide, and Optical Interconnects
Chip/Board/System-level optical interconnects, Active optical cables, Polymer waveguides, etc.

B. Displays
LCD, Laser/LED/EL displays, 3D displays, Projection displays, Wearable displays, etc.

C. Optical Imaging and Sensing
Optics for image recognition, Sensors and sensing systems, Security systems, Optical computing, Bio- and medical sensing, Tomography, etc.

D. Optical Equipment
Optical storages, Laser and LED printers, Advanced cameras, Advanced optical microscopes, etc.

E. New Applications
Green photonics, Environmental and energy optics, Bio- and medical optics, Nano-photonics, systems, Agricultural and fishery optics, etc.

Original papers that have not been previously presented and that describe new technical contributions to the areas covered by the technical descriptions in the aforementioned category will be accepted for presentation.


Papers should be submitted electronically no later than July 31 (Tue.), 2018 August 17(Fri.), 2018. Authors will be requested to submit 1-page abstract written in English, including text, figures, tables, and references within a frame of 17 cm x 24 cm. The abstract template is available for downloading which must be used for compliance.

Authors will be notified of acceptance on or before August 31 (Fri.), 2018. Accepted papers will be published through the Proceedings except for cases of no-show without notification and for paper-cancellation.


In addition to regular oral presentation sessions, poster presentation session will be planned to stimulate detailed explanation and discussion. The author(s) of papers will be informed of the size of bulletin board for displaying summary, figures, tables, etc., when selected as poster papers.


The official language of IWPPI2018 is English.
