PHOTONICS IN SWITCHING 2015 PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 21, 2015.
The event will take place at the enchanting Convitto della Calza in Florence on September 22-25, 2015.
Co-located event: TIWDC 2015 - Fiber Nonlinearities in Coherent Optical Communication, September 22, 2015.
Photonics in Switching addresses all aspects of optical switching components & devices, optical switching functions & building blocks, optical systems and optical networking. Research topics include optical switching technologies that allow dense integration of photonic and electronic functionalities operating side-by-side; various aspects of photonics in computing systems; optical subsystem technologies and architectures including optical signal processing, integrated advanced modulation schemes; optical-code translation, label switching and processing; and optical networking and computing architectures and systems including optical cross-connects and interconnects, reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers, optical packet and burst switching routers, rapidly reconfigurable networks and next-generation protocols and architectures. The meeting will include plenary, keynote and many invited papers by recognized experts plus timely contributed oral and poster presentations.
