POFWORLD 2011 has been postponed, and will be combined with the
POF Symposium at OFC/NFOEC, March 7, 2012.

Dr. Paul Polisuk
Conference Chair

Due to schedule conflicts of some speakers and key participants, POFTO has decided to postpone the POF World 2011 Conference, originally scheduled for next month in Santa Clara, and to combine it with the POF Symposium at OFC/NFOEC, March 6-8, 2012, in Los Angeles, California. We deeply regret the short notice of this change and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

The conference will focus on green and new applications such as smart grid, solar energy, wind turbines and medical devices. For more information click here: POF Symposium at OFC/NFOEC 2012
