How to Get Involved

Companies, universities and research institutes interested in integrated photonics are encouraged to participate.

The Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap  (IPSR) invites all previous participants in relevant iNEMI, ITRS, MIT MicroPhotonics and PSMC Technology Working Groups (TWGs), as well as additional stakeholders to participate in this focused “integrated photonics” effort.  Key organizations, including universities, research institutes, SMEs, customers and the vertical supply chain, will be invited to participate. 

Participation and attendance at all IPSR meetings is by invitation, but all stakeholders who are willing to devote time and effort to achieve the goals of IPSR are encouraged to participate.  There are four ways to participate:

  1. Join one of the eight TWGs by contacting the Chair (see list below)
  2. Attend IPSR workshops at MIT by registering on the IPSR website and requesting an invitation to the meetings
  3. Provide functional cost objectives for the IPSR cost emulator
  4. Participate in IPSR surveys
