The 18th China International Optoelectronic Expo Opens Today
SHENZHEN, China, September 6, 2016
Tens of thousands of visitors from around the world gathering at Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center are about to be amazed by a wide variety of innovative technologies, including the model of the world’s first quantum experiment satellite nicknamed “Micius” or “Mozi”, 360° dome theater created by top notch laser technology, drones, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicle, intelligent robots, intelligent medical and more. Surrounded by an array of products built with latest optoelectronic technologies, visitors will be able to closely experience the incredible magic power that profoundly change our lives. Today, all these are gathered in the 18th China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE 2016) at Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center.
The outstanding contributions made by the optoelectronics community are rarely known by the public, but now you can have an intuitive experience here in CIOE. In 2016, CIOE opens a window to the future with the debut of the biggest highlight of the Expo – “Photonics Innovation Pavilion”. The Photonics Innovation Pavilion primarily focuses on innovative optoelectronic technologies that would change the future, including biophotonics, quantum communication / quantum satellite, emerging displays (OLED and graphene as the representative of flexible display), AR / VR, photonic manufacturing, robots and drones. During the event, the most groundbreaking products and technologies in the industry will be showcased by major players, including 5 top notch research institutes under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1 national optoelectronics laboratory, 13 premier domestic and foreign colleges and universities and 2000 optoelectronics companies. This line-up presents the “Olympic Games” of optoelectronics technologies across the world.
A large number of cutting-edge academic and industrial meetings will be held during the China International Optoelectronic Expo, including 1 themed conference, 18 professional forums and over 400 sessions. The topics cover various technologies in the optoelectronic industrial chain, such as optical communications, fiber optic photonics, biomedical, micro-nano optics, optical measurement, laser technology, big data cloud computing, IoT, optical manufacturing, sapphire, infrared sensing and smart community. Seven academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering and more than 200 domestic and foreign experts will share in-depth insights in their respective areas. Each meeting would be like a charging station to empower attendees, making them find the trip worthwhile by getting valuable insights into the industry.
Thousands of high-tech products will dazzle the audience, and hundreds of meetings will bring a fresh and brand-new experience for the attendees. In addition, the Expo also offers an array of activities and platforms, such as Sino-US optoelectronic technology PK platform, optics lens application design contest, alumni association of photoelectric colleges and universities, smart product experience zones, 360° dome theater world tour, photograph equipment appreciation for astronomy enthusiasts, exhibition of excellent astrophotography works… All these innovative activities are both scientific and entertaining. Here you will find how optoelectronic technologies are closely connected to everyday life, and how CIOE’s mission – “high-tech changes life, photoelectric illuminates the future”- is lively demonstrated.
