Sbfoton Conference 2021: Keep on Shining!

SBFoton International Optics and Photonics Conference (IOPC) 2021 was a success in many ways: number of participants, number of speakers and technical program quality. This result would not have been possible without the coordinated effort of a large number of people working on the organization, infrastructure and production of content.

The SBFoton 2021 platform, accessible to registered participants, will remain online for 2 months displaying all activities and videos that have been authorized to be recorded.

To everyone who collaborated in the organizing and technical program committees, including group leaders, papers’ reviewers, competition evaluators, invited speakers, regular and invited paper authors and session chairs, to our sister societies (IPS and OSA), to our sponsors (Keysight, ThorLabs, Idea!, Silvaco, PadTec and Embrapii-São Carlos), to the website and virtual platform teams (Preface Design and Softaliza), and to all participants, thank you very much.

At the conference's closing ceremony, the outcome of the student competition, whose prize is paid by IEEE Photonics Society, was announced. To all competitors and, in particular, to the winners, congratulations!
