Due to the continued effects of COVID-19 this year, the OFS Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone OFS another year. The conference will now be held June 6 - 10, 2022 at the Westin Alexandria.

We believe that this June, international travel will still be unlikely for a large number of our participants, and that the conference would not be as beneficial as a virtual event.

We are working with OSA to determine the best way to move forward with the papers that are currently accepted. OFS would plan to reopen paper submissions for the 2022 conference. More information on this will be provided as soon as possible.

OFS 2022

Alexandria, Virginia, USA

The International Conference on Optical Fibre Sensors (OFS), established in 1983, is acknowledged as the world’s leading conference on all topics related to photonic sensing technologies. OFS provides a forum for reporting and exchanging ideas on the latest advances in research and development on fiber-optic and photonic sensing. It has also contributed significantly to industrialization and standardization of the related devices and systems for field deployment. OFS is independently run and complies to the strictest standards for the evaluation of submissions.

The 27th OFS conference (OFS 2022) will be held in Alexandria, Virginia, a historic port town on the banks of the Potomac River, approximately 5 miles south of the Nation’s capital, during 6-10 of June 2022. It will offer plenary and invited talks, contributed oral and poster presentations, workshops, and exhibitions from industrial partners. Social events will also take place to foster networking among the participants in a friendly setting.
