This Optica Event is presented in a hybrid meeting format to accommodate both in-person and virtual (online) participation.

The Advanced Photonics Congress is a broad-spectrum, in-depth event comprised of five topical meetings that primarily cover the latest advancements in optical materials, optical signal processing, optical communications and integrated optics.

One important topic intersects many of the topical meetings in the congress: the building blocks of quantum science and engineering that will provide for future quantum information processing and quantum-enabled fiber optic networks. Another hot topic is artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML): how they are used in optical design and optical networks, including how photonics can help implement and boost performance of machine-learning techniques. Other major topics include 5G, switching, free-space communications and terahertz technologies.
