Welcome Message

4th Workshop on Specialty Optical Fibers and Their Applications 

The 4th Workshop on Specialty Optical Fiber and Their Applications (WSOF'2015) is a technical workshop and exhibit on advances and innovations in the field of specialty optical fibers and their applications. Just like the three previous workshops in the series, it brings together students and researchers from academia and industry, with an interest in fiber optics.

The three day event will offer plenary, tutorial and invited talks, as well as contributed and poster papers. Industrial partners are invited to expose their latest technology and product offerings in the exhibition.

You are welcome to join us in Hong Kong!
