Hosted by TE Connectivity
Rietveldenweg 32, 5222 AR 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands

This event is a follow-up from the previous meeting hosted by IBM on 5-6 December 2013 in Switzerland (see summary video - article - attendees). The focus of the next meeting is on electronics/photonics integration and constraints, and packaging solution/standardization. Where are standards needed in packaging in photonic integrated circuits? What's the current status? What needs to be done?

Registration PICs Workshop

EPIC Technology Workshops Concept
EPIC events are mainly on-invitation and limited in size, ensuring that experts and leaders on the topic can openly discuss and exchange to address technological and commercial advancement, and explore collaboration opportunities. After the workshop, a summary will be shared and next action items defined. Networking is an important ingredient to a successful workshop, a list of participants will be shared in advance, and several networking opportunities available through-out the event.
