     Optics & Photonics Taiwan International Conference (OPTIC) is the annual meeting

    for the photonic community in Taiwan. It is also one of the most important

    International photonics forum in Taiwan this year. The conference is held from

    December 3 to December 5, 2020 by National Taipei Unversity of Technology in

    Taipei, Taiwan. Ten topics of photonics will be covered in this conference:

    1. Nanophotonic Materials and Devices

    2. Optical Waveguides and Communications

    3. Quantum Electronics and Laser Technology

    4. Holography and Information Processing

    5. Optical Design

    6. Biophotonics and Biomedical Imaging

    7. Display Technology

    8. Solid State Lighting

    9. Photovoltaic Technology

    10. Thin‐Film Technology and Optical Engineering

    This year is especially important because of the earlier pandemic situation

    globally. Conference planners and staffs took extra cares to prepare this technical

    event. A broad spectrum of invited speakers were planned and foreign speakers

    delivered their talks using either pre‐taped video or live‐streaming. Other local talks

    were presented in the National Taipei University of Technology with mask mandate

    and temperature measurement for each participant. Social distance is also required.

    In this conference, the plenary talks were delivered by President of IEEE Photonics

    Society, Dr. Carmen S. Menoni, President of SPIE, Dr. John Greivenkamp, Vice

    President of OSA, Dr. Satoshi Kawata. Plenary talks also covered a wide range of

    topics, from Prof. Milton Feng’s microcavity laser, Prof. Jianping Yao’s integrated

    Microwave Photonics, Prof. Gee‐Kung Chang’s 6G Wireless Networks, AUO President

    Frank Ko’s Digital transformation in Display industry, Prof. Ding‐Ping Tsai’s Meta‐lens

    research, Prof. Ann‐Shyn Chiang’s Brain Imaging technology.

    The attendance is also impressive: more than 1000 students, engineers, and faculty

    members registering this conference. Among them, around 100 IEEE members

    participated this conference in the form of presentation, committee members,

    organizing committee and exhibitions. The interaction between academia and

    industry is one of the important things to keep the photonic development going and

    the novel ideas can prevail. We really hope we can achieve this goal by this annual


    In the conference, a special event Women in Optics/Women in Engineering was

    held to celebrate and promote the female participation of the photonic research

    activities. The event is well planned, and accompanied with a family event to make

    photonic toys for kids, and some wine tasting. It really helps moms and dads in

    photonic community to share their experiences and educate the young minds.

    In conclusion, this technical conference was held during this difficult time, and the

    high attendance demonstrated that the need to have a platform for knowledge

    discussion is important. Students and professors appreciated the opportunities to

    discuss their works with other people. In the following, we will share some of the
