4th International Seminar on Photonics, Optics, and its Applications (ISPhOA 2020)

Sanur - Bali, October 6-7, 2020

ISPhOA 2020 at A Glance

ISPhOA 2020 is the 4th biennial International Seminar on Photonics, Optics, and its Applications (ISPhOA), which is organized by the Department of Engineering Physics ITS. The first ISPhOA was held in Sanur Bali on October 14 - 15 2014, and secondly was held on August 24 - 25 2016 in Legian Bali, and thirdly was held on August 1 - 2 2018 in Surabaya. ISPhOA as a scientific forum is dedicated to provide a venue for discussions, sharing of expertise, and as an ideal place to build a strong networking among academician and researchers that are actively involved in the development of Optics and Photonics technologies, either from Universities, R&D Centers, Industries, as well as from related Government Officials It is hoped that this forum can accelerate transfer of R & D outcomes into applications that match with societal and industrial needs, particularly the ones across nationwide, ASEAN countries, and other neighboring regions.

Bali, Indonesia’s most famous island, is located to the east of Java in the Lesser Sunda Islands. It is world-renowned for its scenic rice terraces, fragrant cuisine, stunning beaches and a galore of culture and tradition. With its elaborate temples, endless coastline, some of the world's best coral reefs, waterfalls and retreats, Bali combines leisure and adventure, spiritual awakening and hard-partying all into one island that people from all over the world come to lose themselves in. The island boasts some of the best sunsets and sunrises, enough to captivate and entice you into never leaving this place, especially in Sanur.

Sanur, Bali’s original seaside resort, has long been known for its world class facilities and an atmosphere of comfort and privacy. Approximately 25 minutes from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport this oasis of luxury offers a wide range of dining and leisure opportunities. Despite the abundance of restaurants and accommodation, it has a quiet and relaxed feel to it. Sanur tends to appeal most to middle-aged and older families, especially Europeans. Most hotels in Sanur are big, with spacious gardens.
