After the successful workshops in Moscow (2010), Budapest (2011), St. Petersburg (2012), Almaty(2013), Brno (2015), Lisbon (2016), Munich (2017) and Sarajevo (2019), we will continue this year with a workshop. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the conference will be in a hybrid format. The location of physical event is Ljubljana (Slovenia).

The primary goal of FOAN 2021 is to bring together and present the latest research in the field of fiber optics technologies. The idea behind the workshop is to create opportunity to learn new things by gathering scientists and experts from academia, industry and operators in the field that will during the workshop share their knowledge, experience, and ideas.

As previously years, the FOAN2021 processing will be sent to be published in IEEE Xplore.
