In the third edition of the flagship POM conferences, #POM21ja expanded to a two-day format to include new talks and events. The conference kicked off on day 1 with a hot topics session followed by two invited speakers giving optic tutorials. A poster session and a day-long virtual job fair occurred concurrently using the Gather platform to facilitate live interactions between conference participants. Day 2 featured 12 speakers in three topic areas: metasurfaces, biosensors, and frequency combs. Invited speakers included Abu Sebastian (IBM Zurich, Switzerland), Jelena Vuckovic (Stanford University, United States), Jason Valentine (Vanderbilt University, United States), Maria Soler (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Spain), and Miriam Vitiello (Istituto Nanoscienze, Italy).
Following right on the heels of the success of the first POM, #POMju20 again featured 12 speakers in three topic areas: biophotonics, light-matter interactions, and A.I. & photonics. Invited speakers Hatice Altug (EFPL, Switzerland), Qihua Xiong (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore), and Marin Soljacic (MIT, United States) reflected the truly global nature of the conference facilitated by its online format. Building on the success of the Twitter poster session, this conference also included a virtual reality poster session hosted on Mozilla Hubs, where 15 poster presenters were selected to highlight their research.
The event that started it all, #POMja20 was the first flagship POM conference. In addition to a Twitter poster session, the inaugural one-day event featured 12 speakers in three topic areas: integrated optics, nanoscale quantum optics, and optical materials, including invited speakers Mercedeh Khajavikhan (University of Central Florida, United States), Mete Atature (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom), and Nader Engheta (University of Pennsylvania, United States).
