The Latin American Workshop on Optical Fiber Sensors (LAWOFS) organized by the Brazilian Society for Microwave and Optoelectronics (SBMO) is a renowned event uniting the scientific community involved with optical fiber sensor design and applications.

Following the successful meetings in 2016 (Porto Alegre) and 2019 (Rio de Janeiro), the LAWOFS 2024 will take place at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Campinas, Sao Paulo, as a special Ibero-American edition, advancing the synergy with

Ibero leading groups in fiber sensing research and development.

The LAWOFS 2024 will focus on intense interaction among Ibero-American participants to encourage purposeful debate on new concepts, technologies, and applications of photonic sensing, enhancing international collaborations in R&D projects. Furthermore, this special edition broadens its scope to general photonic sensors based on waveguide and free-space optics, besides introducing a Students’ Session to motivate the participation of undergraduate students in scientific discussions.

We welcome you to join us at Campinas in 2024 and look forward to your noteworthy contributions.


Founded in 1962, the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) is a public university in Sao Paulo State with a main campus located in Campinas. UNICAMP figures in international academic rankings as a center of excellence, producing world-class basic and applied research, and providing high-standard undergraduate and graduate education.

UNICAMP played a central role in optical fiber systems development and application since 1970, leading the fabrication of fibers and implementation of optical communication networks in Brazil. Nowadays, notorious groups in UNICAMP conduct advanced research in cooperation with national and international institutes to conceive novel photonic materials, waveguides, and devices, besides optical fiber sensors devoted to physical, chemical, and biomedical measurements, presenting active interaction with the industry through successful examples of technology transfer.
