3 Conferences, 2 Days, 1 Exhibition

Photonic Integrated Circuits International

Sales of PICs are soaring, with their deployment helping to boost the capacity of networks and data centres. To aid this industry, we are strengthening the relationships between the makers and the users of these integrated circuits by organising the 3rd PIC International, a global conference dedicated to this industry.

Attendees to the conference will hear industry-leading insiders delivering more than 30 presentations spanning five sectors. The conference will equip the delegates with an up-to-date overview of the status of the PIC industry, and provided them with many opportunities to meet other key players within this community.

Compound Semiconductor International

The 8th CS International conference will build on the success of its predecessors, with industry-leading insiders delivering more than 30 presentations spanning five sectors.

Together, these talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs.

Attendees at this two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.

High End Sensors International

High-end sensor devices are an increasingly significant share of the global machine sensory market that is expected to exceed 30 billion devices by 2020 with revenue of (USD) $20 billion. We will explore opportunities for the most advanced sensors that deliver higher performance, ruggedness and longer operational lifetimes. We will examine new technologies that are cutting costs while increasing effectiveness. We will explore product development within major high-end sensor categories and ways that researchers and manufacturers are investigating to enhance performance, reduce power consumption, and improve efficiency.


THREE cutting edge complimentary conferences and ONE dedicated exhibition featuring leading players from across the globe.
