ISMB at the PIC International Conference

22 February 2016

Silvio Abrate, Head of Applied Photonics Research Area, will be one of the keynote speakers of the PIC International Conference, that will be held on 1st and 2nd March in Brussels (Belgium).
PIC International will provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the integrated photonic circuits industry, from basic research and materials to equipment, packaging, and the incorporation of chips in data centres and optical networks.

The presentations of the conference will be grouped into six key themes which collectively provide complete coverage of the Photonic Integrated Circuits industry:
- Where should the laser go?
- Driving deployment of PICs in datacentres
- Increasing the capability of optical networks
- What's the role of the foundry?
- Do we have the tools for designing, making, packaging and testing PICs?
- A question of material: InP, silicon, or something else? 

The keynote speech of Silvio Abrate, entitled “How can silicon photonics benefit optical access deployment? An example from the FABULOUS EU Project” will be the first day, within the sector Increasing the capability of optical networks.
