OSK-OSA-OSJ Joint Symposia

Welcome to the OSK-OSA-OSJ Joint Symposia on Optics 2021



On behalf of the organizing committee of the OSK-OSA-OSJ Joint Symposia 2021, we would like to thank all of you for your attendance.


The Joint Symposia will be held during OPC 2021 (OSK Annual Summer Meeting) as a hybrid meeting from July 5(Mon) to 7(Wed), 2021 at the International Convention Center (ICC Jeju), Jeju Island, Korea.


The joint symposia were initially launched as symposia between the Optical Society (OSA) and the Optical Society of Japan (OSJ) and further extended to include the Optical Society of Korea (OSK) since 2018.

The first joint symposia between three societies have been successfully held in Japan during the OSJ Annual Meeting in 2018. Since that time, the OSK, OSA and OSJ organized annual joint symposia in recognition of their strong partnership. The annual joint symposia will be held alternately during OSK and OSJ annual meeting.


Two topic categories of the symposia are ‘Applied Optics’ and ‘Optical Science’. The main goal of the symposia is to create a global forum for leading researchers to present their latest work and to share the most up-to-date results in scientific subjects and related new technologies in the fields of Applied Optics and Optical Science.

Taking into account the continuing COVID19 pandemic, we have decided to hold this year’s joint symposia as a hybrid meeting (on-site or online presentation for domestic participants and real-time online or video presentations for all overseas speakers via zoom).

This year, we have planned to open only plenary and invited sessions with 3 plenary and 18 invited presentations.


We hope that the joint endeavor can provide scientific and professional networking as well as scientific inspiration to the attendees.
