EMP18 follows the successful EMP17 conference that took place in Shenzhen, China, and the EMP16 conference that took place in Troyes, France. The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for academics, scientists, business leaders, innovators, and industrialists around the world to exchange ideas and form collaborations to jointly fight energy crisis, and combat global warming and climate change. In particular, we solicit papers in a broad area of energy photonics, an emerging area in applying photonics in high efficiency energy production, utilization, and related material researches supporting these applications.
