ICO General Congress

The ICO General Congress has been one of the most historic and authoritative conferences in the field of optics and photonics since the 1st congress was held in the Netherlands in 1948. Following ICO-13 in Sapporo in 1984, in 2017 Japan will once again host ICO-24: which is to be held at the Keio Plaza Hotel, Shinjuku, Tokyo, from August 21st to 25th. With attendees and delegates from all over the world, ICO-24 will include a wide range of topics on optics and photonics, providing a platform for mutual communication between researchers of different fields linked with the main common theme of “Light for Society”.
