The IEEE International Conference on Group IV Photonics (GFP) is one of the leading international conferences focused on Silicon Photonics and other group IV element based photonic materials and devices. The 10th IEEE International Conference on Group IV Photonics will be held at the Grand Hilton Seoul in the beautiful city of Seoul Korea from 28-30 August 2013. The conference is planned as a single track conference and will include both oral and poster sessions of contributed and invited papers comprising reviews on a number of important and timely topics. A post-deadline session will feature the most recent and exciting results. Technical results on group IV element photonic materials and devices, including integration and fabrication technologies are welcomed.
