Welcome to WRAP 2019

December 13 - 14, 2019 | IIT Guwahati

It is our great pleasure and honor to extend our warmest welcome and invite you to the IEEE Workshop on Recent Advances in Photonics (WRAP) 2019 to be held in the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, India on December 13 - 14, 2019.

The IEEE WRAP is a biennial workshop series organized by the IEEE Photonics Society in India. The first edition (WRAP2013) was held at IIT Delhi in December 2013. The last two editions i.e. WRAP2015 and WRAP2017 have been held in IISc Bangalore and MEC Hyderabad in December 2015 and December 2017, respectively. WRAP 2019 is the 4th edition, planned to be organized in the beautiful campus of IIT Guwahati, surrounded by the majestic river Brahamputra on one side and hills on the other side. The primary aim of WRAP 2019 is to provide a platform for bringing together global experts and researchers to disseminate and highlight novel contributions and challenges and, as an outcome, motivate innovation in the field of Photonics. For WRAP2019 we invite original papers on emerging trends and significant developments in the area of optics and photonics. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):


Nanophotonics and Biophotonics 

Mid-IR and THz photonics
