International Workshop on Holography and related technologies (IWH2019) will be held at Penang School of Toyohashi Tech, Penang, Malaysia, from Nov. 5 to 7, 2019. This is the Thirteenth workshop which covers overall aspects on holography and related technologies, holographic memories, displays, holographic measurement, computer generated holograms and digital holography, ranging from their fundamental physics and technologies to practical systems. The first International Workshop on Holographic Memories (IWHM2007) was held in Penang, Malaysia. IWHM2008 and IWHM&D2009-2010 were successfully held in Japan, which include overall aspects on holographic memories and display. Since 2011, this workshop has extended the scope furthermore, and IWH covers the holographic display, holographic optical elements, as well as holographic memory. Last year, IWH2018 was held at Suzhou, China with great success. IWH2019 is back to Penang, Malaysia where the birth place of this conference. IWH2019 is jointly organized by the following associations:


・ Japan Optomechatronics Association (JOEM)

・ Optoelectronics Industry and Technology Development Association (OITDA)

・ JSPS Amorphous and Nano-materials and Applications 147 Committee

・ IEEE Magnetics Society Nagoya Chapter

・ Photonics division, The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP)
・ Optical Society of Japan (OSJ)


All topics related to holography including memories, displays, digital holography, computer generated holography, and holographic optical elements are going to be discussed, ranging from their basic physics and technologies to practical applications, such as materials, components, measurements, basic theory and physics, system design, simulations and devices. In what follows is the list of subject areas, which are not restrictive but suggestive:

1. Holographic Memory
2. Holographic Optical Elements
3. Computer Generated Holography
4. Digital Holography
5. Holographic Display
6. Holography Arts and Design
7. Recording Materials
8. Signal Processing for Holography
9. Devices for Holography
10. Simulation for Holography
11. AR, MR, HUD and HMD with Holography
12. Applications
