WRAP is a biennial event organized by the IEEE Photonics Society in India. The primary aim of WRAP is to provide a platform that brings together global experts and researchers to disseminate and highlight novel contributions and challenges in the field of Photonics. The first edition of WRAP was organized at IIT Delhi in 2013. The later editions of WRAP were held at IISc Bangalore, Mahindra University, and IIT Guwahati in 2015, 2017, and 2019, respectively. The fifth edition of WRAP is planned to be held as a hybrid (in-person and virtual) event tentatively at IIT Bombay. However, depending on the Covid-19 pandemic situation and the guidelines prevalent at that time, the event might be converted to a completely virtual mode.
