The V International conference on photonics and information optics carried on traditions of the forums held under the auspices of Scientific sessions of MEPhI since 2000: broad coverage of participants and perspectives and involvement of students and young scientists. Considering relevance and importance of researches on this subject, need of an exchange of new ideas and methods between experts both in the Russian Federation, and at the international level, a great interest to conference not only among scientists of the CIS, but also in Europe and Asia. Participants of conference supported holding of VI International conference on photonics and information optics in NRPU MEPhI under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation in 2016.
