The 20th European Conference on Network and Optical Communications, NOC 2015 will be held in London, UK, from June 30th to July 2nd, 2015.

NOC addresses research topics in the optical networks area, such as core, metro and access net - work planning design and modeling, optical communications (both fiber and free-space), and pho - tonic devices. New topics such as optical mobile backhauling, optical interconnects, intra-datacenter networking, and software-defined optical networks will also be included.

Topics of interest include

  • Optical network performance modelling
  • Optical network planning and design
  • Optical network management
  • Signalling for all-optical networks
  • Measurement, monitoring and supervision techniques
