Call For Papers

The 39th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication
ECOC will be the largest optical communication event in Europe for 2013 and will provide a forum for new results and developments.

Technical Scope:

Sub committee 1 - Fibres, Fibre Devices and Amplifiers
Chair: Periklis Petropoulos

This area focuses on optical fibres, their design, fabrication and characterisation, the physics of light propagation in optical fibres, fibre amplifiers and fibre lasers, as well as fibre based devices for telecommunication, data communications and other applications.

Sub committee 2 - Waveguide and Optoelectronic Devices
Chair: Graeme Maxwell

This area focuses on the design, fabrication, performance testing, and reliability of devices and components used to generate, amplify, detect, switch, or process optical signals for information transport and processing, routing and interconnecting. Technologies include planar waveguides, bulk optics, and photonic bandgap structures based on various material systems.

Sub committee 3 - Subsystems for Optical Networks and Datacoms
Chair: Seb Savory

This area focuses on the modelling, design, and implementation of optical, optoelectronic, or electrical subsystems, including algorithms for digital coherent transceivers, performance monitoring, optical signal processing, add-drop multiplexing, optical switching, and optical packet routing. In addition, the area considers enabling optical interconnects, switching and routing subsystems and integrated interconnection architectures that address the unique challenges of Datacom and Computercom.

Sub committee 4 - Point-to-Point Transmission Systems
Chair: Ekaterina Golovchenko

This area focuses on the modelling, design, and implementation of optical transmission links of all scales, highlighting system-level implications of physical impairments and impairment mitigation techniques. Contributions to this area are concerned with aspects such as capacity, reach, flexibility, or energy consumption of optical transmission systems and solutions to overcome the current limitations. Papers illustrating the transmission benefits of novel fibres, devices and subsystems are encouraged but papers focused on fibre, device or subsystem design and/or their more general properties/performance should be submitted elsewhere.

Sub committee 5 - Optical Transport and Large Scale Data Networks
Chair: Andrew Lord

This area focuses on the modelling, design, architecture, and scaling of optical transport for telecommunications and data networks. This includes circuit- and packet-switched backbone, metro-core and inter datacentre networks as well as the control and management functions and integration with higher layer services. It also covers aspects of successful commercial network deployments and field trials. We particularly encourage submissions that focus on new application areas and cutting-edge network level innovations.

Sub committee 6 - Access, Local Area and Intra-Data Center Networks
Chair: Albert Rafel

This area focuses on networking aspects of broadband optical access and local-area networks. It covers FTTx, passive optical networks, radio-over-fibre systems, free space systems, hybrid wireless/optical solutions, in-building and intra data-centre networks. It also comprises aspects of successful commercial mass deployments, field trials, and applications of optical communication technologies in public, private and enterprise networks and computer interconnect networks.
