22nd International Conference on Optical Fiber Sensors (OFS-22)

Date: 15 -19 October 2012

Venue: China Hall of Science and Technology, Beijing, China

The International Conference on ‘Optical Fiber Sensors’ is acknowledged as the world’s leading conference on all topics related to fiber-optic, guided-wave and optical sensing devices, systems, theories and techniques for research and applications. The first OFS was held in London, in 1983. Since then it has become established as the leading forum. The conference is held approximately every eighteen months, rotating between the Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific. OFS-22 will be held in Beijing from 15-19 October 2012. It will be the first time that China hosts the OFS conference. OFS-22 will offer invited and contributed paper presentations both in oral sessions and poster sessions, special workshops, and an exhibition of commercial products, as well as social and cultural events.

Main topics:

• Physical, Mechanical, and Electromagnetic Sensors
• Chemical and Environmental Sensors
• Biological and Medical Sensors
• Fiber Optic Gyroscopes
• Fiber Grating Sensors
• Photonic Crystal Fibers and Sensors
• Micro- and Nano-structured Fiber Sensors
• Distributed Sensing
• Multiplexing and Sensor Networking
• Smart Structures and Sensors
• Passive and Active Devices for Photonic Sensing
• New Fibers and Coating Materials for Sensing
• Sensor Application, Field Tests and Standardization
• Slow and Fast Light, and Other Emerging Technologies for Sensing

Special Workshops:

• Fiber Optic Gyro – 35 Anniversary
• Industrial Progress, Commercial Systems and Field Tests.

We thank all the delegates for their support and contribution to OFS-22. Conference Photo Gallery is available now.
