On behalf of the conference Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 12th International Conference on Group IV Photonics in Vancouver. The conference will feature an exciting program with presentations organized in three topical sessions covering the breadth of Group-IV photonic research and spanning the range from scientific curiosity and fundamental discovery to advanced applications and commercialization. A special industry forum session is also planned with solicited presentations from key industry players in the field. Plenary presentations by leading authorities of the international photonics community will provide an insightful update on the state of the world photonics R&D and market, and address hot topics in the field. We are confident that you will find the technical program stimulating and inspiring. It is our hope that the conference will serve as a fertile ground to present and discuss your research advances, to learn about new discoveries and current trends and to network with your colleagues, peer community and clients. We wish you have an enjoyable and productive conference week in our city of Vancouver.
