Welcome Message

Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP) is currently the largest conference in Asia-Pacific region on optical communications, photonics, optical sensing and relevant optoelectronic technologies. ACP comes from APOC and AOE, and it has been held annually tracing back to 2001. ACP is jointly sponsored by The Optical Society (OSA), the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), IEEE Photonics Society (IPS), The Chinese Optical Society (COS) and China Institute of Communications (CIC).

ACP 2016 together with the 9th International Photonics and OptoElectronics Meetings (POEM 2016), the 13th International Conference on Photonics and Imaging in Biology and Medicine (PIBM 2016), and the 13th Optics Valley of China International Optoelectronic Exposition (OVC EXPO 2016) will be held in Wuhan International Exhibition Center, China, on November 2-5, 2016.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event in Wuhan!
