The 19th OptoElectronics and Communications Conference (OECC) is one of the foremost international conferences held annually in the Asia-Pacific region for the engineers and researchers working in the fields of photonics and optical communication systems. It has been providing an international forum to present and discuss the progresses in research, development, and application of these areas.

This year, with the colocation with the 39th Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (ACOFT) and inclusion of the CLEO Focus Session, the conference also covers the recent progresses in the field of photonics outside the traditional telecom applications.
