Dear ICOP2020 community,
initially, the Italian Conference on Optics and Photonics 2020  was postponed until September 9-11, 2020. 
However, due to the current restrictions caused by COVID19 pandemic, we have decided to organize ICOP2020 as a virtual event from September 8 to September 11, 2020.
This will allow authors  to present their original scientific contribution to our community this year, without further delay, as well as to keep in touch with the Italian Optics and Photonics community.
The presentations will be streamed “live” in the mornings from September the 8th to September the 11th.
In order to make the Italian Conference on Photonics 2020 accessible to our entire community, there will be no cost to participate as an attendee.
Contributing authors who are making an oral presentation or presenting a poster will pay a EUR 100 presentation fee.We hope that this virtual solution and offer of free registration will increase our potential audience and enable you to reach an even broader target.
We will provide you with instructions on how to connect and how to present at this virtual event shortly.

We appreciate your understanding and sincerely hope to see you virtually this September!
Registration deadline is August 2, 2020. Please fill the registration form.

The final program is now available. 

Kind regards,
The ICOP2020 Organizing Committee
