It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 23rd Opto-Electronics and Communications Conference will be held at ICC Jeje in Jeju island, Korea from July 2 to 6, 2018. Also, OECC 2018 will be hosted by the Optical Society of Korea.

As you are probably aware, the OECC 2018 is one of the foremost international conferences held annually in the Asia-Pacific region for the engineers and researchers working in the fields of optoelectronics and optical communication systems. It has been providing the best international forum to present and discuss the progresses in research, development, and application of these areas.

Also, the conference will contain the plenary lectures, invited talks, Workshop lectures, oral and poster presentations. We sincerely hope that all of our participants will use this valuable time to produce deep and profound discussions on Opto-Electronics and Communications and also make lasting friendships and future colleagues with all of our prestigious researchers.

The beautiful island Jeju is located off the south coast of Korea with easy access and world-class resort areas. It has a mild subtropical climate, allows visa-free entry for 180 countries, and is designated as UNESCO World Nature Heritage. The conference venue is equipped with modern facilities and commands a gorgeous view of the coast of Jeju island. 

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Jeju Island.
