PIC International 2016 will provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the photonics integrated circuits (PIC) industry.

Sales of PICs are soaring, with their deployment helping to boost the capacity of networks and data centres. The inaugural PIC International Conference aims to strengthen the relationships between the makers and the users of these integrated circuits.

Conference attendees will hear industry experts delivering more than 30 presentations spanning six key industry themes, including deployment of PICs in data centres and increasing the capability of optical networks.

PIC International will be colocated with the 6th CS International Conference.
