Preview: 11th CIRP Conference on Photonic Technologies [LANE 2020]

Modern research has to act on social, economic and environmental developments to provide solutions for the existing and upcoming global challenges. For this reason, LANE offers a platform for an international exchange of ideas, opinions, perspectives, results and solutions concerning photonic technologies. In order to give a detailed overview, the conference aims not only at scientific contributions, but integrates the industrial perspective and their relevance for application as well.

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, participants cannot meet personally this year. Thus, LANE 2020 goes virtual. The organizers announced that iChair supports them by creating a conference platform which ensures the most convenience possible. Virtual LANE will be more than just attending a video call and viewing a live stream!

Stay home, stay safe, stay connected

Virtual LANE – participants can expect: a ‘Keynote Session’ at the first conference day, live talks and discussions, individual conference program planning with the ‘My Program’ tool, watching pre-recorded videos of the talks at any time, discuss specific topics with experts in respective forum channels, network with the ‘Matchmaking’ tool, talk to a specific person with  the chat function, take the ‘Match Roulette’ or visit the ‘Bar Tables’ during the coffee and lunch breaks, or get in touch with the experts in the ‘Sponsor Booths’.

All presentations will be held as live talks and will also be available on a streaming platform. So, you can make your own timetable for listening to the talks. As technical discussions are crucial for scientifc conferences, we will also provide different virtual discussion rooms, where the experts can meet and talk about the presentations they have listened to.

Access to the virtual conference platform hosted by iChair will be possible on September 3, 2020. (Source: BLZ)
