Foreword

Photonic and electromagnetic crystals, which offer unprecedented control of photons, have emerged as an important new class of optical materials. Recent remarkable developments in analysis, calculation, and nano-fabrication techniques enable us to design and fabricate desired photonic crystal structures and devices. Novel photonic nanostructure devices such as ultrasmall channel add/drop filtering devices, new type of lasers, etc. are rapidly developing especially using 2D photonic crystal slabs. Construction of full 3D photonic bandgap crystals continues to be studied for aiming at developing photonic chips including various ultrasmall components by using semiconductor processes, self-assembly methods, and photo-assisted process technologies, and so on.

In addition, research topics are expanding to other aspects of photonic crystals. Recent interests include meta-material, left-handed material, negative refractive indices, etc. Novel applications such as a lens that can focus light beyond the limits of classical optics and slowing or even stopping light inside of the photonic crystal has started to be investigated.

Materials for fabricating photonic crystals are also expanding into all classes: organic, metallic, ceramic, magnetic, and dielectric. Combination of desirable properties and phenomena, such as nonlinearity and luminescence, from a wide variety of materials promises to bring about new and exciting applications. In addition to material variety, structural variation has given rise to various structures including hetero photonic crystals.

In PECS-V, we would like to discuss and define the direction of this exciting field for the next few years.

Information for Authors

Oral Presentation

Total time for presentation is 15 minutes (12min for presentation and 3min for discussion). A projector for a lap top computer is available. You can bring your own laptop or CD ROM.  In case that you bring CD ROM, please note that our computer is Microsoft Windows-based one. 

 

Poster Presentation

Poster session is one of the most important sessions in this symposium. Many excellent papers will be presented at the Poster session since we have received contributed papers more than 200.  We have decided to honor the most excellent poster paper with "PECS-V Best Poster Award".

 

Before starting the Poster session, we are going to make a short preview session. An overhead projector will be prepared.  Please bring one page view graph and explain the essence of your work for one minute. 

 

Please paste your poster before 14:00 on March 8, 2004. During the symposium, please do not remove the poster.  We would like to discuss as much as possible using the posters. Each author is provided with 1.2m wide x 2.1m high board on which to display the summary and results of their paper. Authors remain in the vicinity of the bulletin board for the duration of the sessions to answer questions from attendees. Pins to hold the posters will be prepared by secretary of PECS-V.


Access to Kyoto

The workshop will be held at the conference room in Kyoto International Conference Hall, which is located in Kyoto. Kyoto is a popular tourist city known world-wide for its historic shrines, temples, and other sites. It served as the capital of Japan from 794 to 1868 and was the birthplace of Japanese culture and traditions. There are many famous places of historic interest.

Conference participants arriving at the new Osaka International (KIX:Kansai) Airport can use "Haruka", the airport express of JR-West line to Kyoto station (3290Yen, non-reserved seat costs less than 3000Yen). It takes about 75 minutes and runs every 30 minutes until late afternoon.

Participants arriving at the new Tokyo International (NRT:Narita) Airport are advised to take the JR Narita Express train from Narita Airport to Tokyo Station (2740Yen, 60 min.), since the time required by bus is unpredictable. Then, take the Hikari (or Nozomi) super express train of Tokaido Shinkansen to Kyoto from Tokyo Station. The Hikari runs every 20-30 min. and takes about 2 hours and 49 minutes from Tokyo to Kyoto. Making reservation at Narita Station for the Hikari/Nozomi is recommended. Nozomi requires only 2 hours and 15 minutes, and runs once every 10-20 min. Please note that you cannot use the JR pass for the Nozomi. (Hikari 13220 Yen, Nozomi 13520Yen). You should not take Kodama which will require 4 hours.

From Kyoto Station, Kyoto International Conference Hall is merely a 20-minute ride on the Subway Karasuma Line. The mean temperature of Kyoto on March is 5 to 15 degree C.

 

Hotel Accommodation

A limited block of rooms at a special conference rate has been reserved at Kyoto Takaragaike Prince Hotel, which is located near the Kyoto International Conference Hall. To promote discussion, collaboration and association among the conference participants, we encourage participants to reserve a room at this hotel.

 

Hotel reservation is available at https://j-click.jtb.co.jp/registrye/registrye.asp?id=0240
