The CLEO/Pacific Rim Conference series is sponsored by the The Optical Society (OSA); The Australian Optical Society (AOS); The Chinese Optical Society (COS); The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers/Communications Society (IEICE/CS); The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers/Electronics Society (IEICE/ES); IEEE/Photonics Society; The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP); The Optical Society of Korea (OSK); The Korean Physical Society/Optics and Quantum Electronics Division (KPS/OQE); and the Taiwan Photonics Society (TPS).

First held in 1995, the purpose of this international conference is to provide a forum for an update and review of a wide range of lasers and electro-optics disciplines from device development to systems engineering and applications. The meeting also serves to stimulate the use of more mature optical technologies in other fields.

The 13th Pacific Rim Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO Pacific Rim, CLEO-PR 2018) will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong SAR from 29 July to 3 August 2018.
