Photonics Global Conference (PGC 2024) will be held in Wroclaw, Poland from August 26 to 29, 2024. The primary objective of the conference is to facilitate interdisciplinary interaction among diverse fields within the photonics and optical communications domain. With a rich history spanning several years, this conference annually rotates to different locations around the world, providing a diverse and dynamic platform for global collaboration. Last year's event took place in Stockholm, and in 2024, it is set to make its debut in Poland, positioned as the premier photonics and communication event. Set amidst the unique atmosphere of the Pracze Campus in Wroclaw, it aims to offer an exceptional platform for networking and the dissemination of the latest research findings. This conference will provide a space to convene international scientists, researchers, practitioners, and students in photonics, fostering discussions on emerging developments, novel concepts, and best practices. By identifying synergies in research directions, we endeavor to catalyze broader and deeper applications of photonics
