EMP20|Virtual Conference (

EMP20| 17-18 Dec 2020, Yangon, Myanmar


Scope of EMP20

EMP conferences have been held every year since 2015. Following the successful EMP18 conference in Montreal, Canada and the EMP19 conference in Shanghai, China, the EMP20 will be held in Yangon, Myanmar, in conjunction with 100th Anniversary of University of Yangon. The EMP20 conference was previously planned to hold on 8-11 June 2020. Due to the unprecedented Covid-19 outbreak, it has been postoned to December 2020. The EMP20 will be held on 17-18 December 2020 through virtual conferencing platform. 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.

EMP20 covers all aspects of Material and Photonics in Energy applications including but not limited to:

  • Energy Conversion & Energy Storage Materials
  • Nanomaterials & Hybrid Materials
  • Functional Materials and Devices
  • Semiconductor Lighting and Displays
  • Smart Windows and Coating
  • Smart (Nano) Materials
  • Solar Cells & Solar Fuel
  • Optics and Photonics
  • Nanophotonics & Nano-Optics
  • Nanoplasmonics
