iNEMI and AIM Academy Meetings at OFC 2018

Join us at OFC 2018 for an update on iNEMI optoelectronics projects, Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap (IPSR) and more.

Monday, March 12, 2018 - 8:00am to 5:00pm
San Diego Convention Center
111 West Harbor Drive
Room #22 Upper Level 

Meeting Overview

The iNEMI Optoelectronics Technology Integration Group (TIG), together with the AIM Photonics Academy, have scheduled this one-day session to coincide with OFC 2018. All meetings are open to anyone interested in attending.
From 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., iNEMI will review findings and results from its optoelectronics projects. Then from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., the AIM Photonics Academy will provide an overview of accomplishments and findings from its Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap (IPSR), report on projects, and discuss plans for 2018. 

Conference & Session Registration

OFC will require you to have a complimentary Exhibit Pass Plus badge to access Room #29B on the upper level. You can register online and pick your badge up at the registration desk inside Exhibit Hall A. 
For our planning purposes, we also ask that you register for the iNEMI / AIM Academy meeting. Register now.    

About the AIM Photonics Academy Session

This update will provide an overview of accomplishments and findings of the AIM Photonics Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap (IPSR) and plans for 2018.  Attendees will learn conclusions reached by the roadmapping process and areas identified as potential foci for future collaborative research. This session, based on the 2017 Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap (IPSR) International, will present the roadmap’s timeline for delivery of critical photonic system requirements and discuss the probable path and pace for achieving pervasive commercial deployment of integrated photonic components and systems.   What are the grand challenges and key needs for commercially viable, high-volume manufacturing of photonic-enabled functionality?  What are potential solutions?  What is the timeline for each element in the technology supply chain to deliver manufacturable solutions?  

Who Should Attend

Organizations with an interest in becoming part of the emerging integrated photonics supply chain should attend to learn of potential opportunities.  The objectives of the meeting are to: 
  • Provide guidance to the technology supply chain on the grand challenges and key needs identified by the 926 participants from 308 organizations and 17 countries who have participated in the IPSR roadmapping process over the past three-and-a-half years.
  • Define opportunities for becoming involved in the effort to develop high-volume, low-cost, integrated silicon photonic manufacturing.
