Welcome to POEM 2013, Wuhan!

The 6th International Photonics and OptoElectronics Meetings (POEM 2013), sponsored by Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China Hubei Provincial Science & Technology Department (HBSTD), Wuhan East Lake National Innovation Demonstration Zone (Optics Valley of China, OVC),Hubei Association For Science & Technology and Hubei Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs, and organized by Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO) and The Optical Society (OSA), will be held on 24-27 May 2013.

POEM brings together a wide range of research, technologies and perspectives in the fields of photonics and optoelectronics. It is not only welcomes all your participation in this important international forum, but also features open to all the individuals and entities worldwide that have interest in joining us by programming and organizing the activities under four technical areas of Biomedical Photonics, Industrial Photonics, Information Photonics and Photonics for Energy. 

POEM 2013 features two OSA Topical Meetings -- Nanophotonics, Nanoelectronics and Nanosensor (N3) and Advanced Optoelectronics for Energy and Environment (AOEE). By combing different disciplines and comprehensive meeting types, POEM 2013 is to serve as a platform on exchanging information on recent advances and future trends for researchers and to boost brand for the enterprises.
