The overwhelming success of last year workshop on photonics and optoelectronics that was greatly enjoyed by the international speakers and greatly appreciated by the attendants, and the unfinished expose covering of this ever growing field, have compelled the organizing committee to initiate this successor workshop. Henceforth, the workshop this year  covers more areas in fields such as:


 Investigation and characterization of photonic  crystals and photonic band gap effects

 Fabrication of photonic structures and devices

 Micro- and nano-photonic devices

 Micro-optical-electro-mechanical-systems (MOEMS)
