STATEMENT: CIOP2020 is canceled, and see you CIOP2021.

By considering the challenges of restrictions on large gatherings and travel imposed worldwide due to COVID-19 developments, the conference committees and organizer reached the difficult conclusion to cancel the Optics Frontier: The 12th International Conference on Information Optics and Photonics (CIOP2020). We deeply regret this outcome, but the safety and wellbeing of all participants should be our priority.

We will maintain the technical program as much as possible. We will re-open the submission access and announce a new timeline according to the new conference date. We apologize for any inconvenience that may cause and thank you very much for your patient and support. Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.

Though we are unable to meet in 2020, we are planning a better meeting in July or August 2021. We look forward to seeing you next summer.


CIOP, an annual conference with comprehensive topics on optics and photonics, was initiated in 2007 by Chinese Laser Press, Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The 12th International Conference on Information Optics and Photonics (CIOP2021) will be held on July or August 2021, Beijing, China. We warmly welcome you to the conference!
