VISIT THALES ALENIA SPACE INDUSTRIAL PLANTS!
Tuesday 23th September, 2014 10:30am - 1:00pm Thales Alenia Space, with more than 40 years of experience in the design, integration, testing, operation and commissioning of innovative space systems, welcomes you to discover its site, during ECOC 2014.
ECOC 2014 Conference highlights.
ECOC 2014 Programme : 40th edition built around 7 topics.
Leading-edge researchers will report their work through a carefully selected blend of, tutorial, invited and regular papers, amounting to about 400 oral and poster presentations, Among hot topics, to name a few, you will hear about new fibre components that will support the new frontier of multiplexing, namely spatial division multiplexing, about mature InP based modulators and but also exciting new progress about photonic integrated circuits on silicon. Digital signal processing will draw particular attention, whether through revitalized all optical techniques, or through the pervasive digital approaches, supporting the extraordinary growth of coherent techniques and the ever increasing modulation formats cardinality. At ECOC 2014, you will find out about a new momentum for research on optical packet switching, including a considerable effort into operation, design and fabrication of all optical large port count switches. You will also learn about the latest milestones along the endless path toward greater capacities, with likely complements at the post-deadline session, taking advantage of numerous contributions about the digital mitigation of nonlinear distortions. You can also figure out how the aspiration for networks function virtualization (NFV) could reshape the transport network. ECOC 2014 will also confirm that optical technologies can alleviate the load of electronics, for example by performing dynamic allocation of resources and switching. The role of photonics technologies to support the massive expansion of data centers or between data centers will be confirmed. ECOC 2014 is capturing this emerging field with a dedicated symposium.. This ECOC will explore next generation solutions of passive optical network (PON) technologies. The next generation PON2 topic concerns many papers of this ECOC 2014 ECOC 2014 will also considers the way to deliver very high bit rate inside the home network by record free-space optic links. In addition to the ECOC program, a special “CLEO Focus Meeting” will present, as every even year since 2006, a selection of papers highlighting some of the fundamental aspects of Photonics for future telecommunication..
Book your hotel in Cannes now and save big!

ECOC 2014 PROGRAM AVAILABLE
Check all the themes and the target audience details for each sequence on our website. Come and listen to these 4 international high quality speakers, on Monday 22th of September, in a plenary session at 10am: • Tim Krause, Chief Marketing Officer at Alcatel-Lucent, USA • Mari-Noelle Jégo-Laveissière, Executive Vice President of Innovation, Marketing and Technologies of Orange Group, France • John Bowers, Director of the Institute for Energy Efficiency and Kavli Professor of Nanotechnology, University of California Santa Barbara, USA • Rudy De Waele, Technology Innovation Strategist, Futurist, Keynote speaker and Author/ Curator of shift 2020, UK
The Technical Program Committee – with Pascale Nouchi and Sébastien Bigo as Committee Chairs – have met in the beginning of June with the sub-committee chairs and studied over 800 papers during 2 days. All the sub-committee chairs are very satisfied with the program and selection. The papers have been selected and all authors informed. The program will be available in the next days.
The Best Student Paper Award, sponsored by ADVA
Following with the ECOC tradition, a best student paper Award will be attributed to a student author, for writing a remarkable paper and making an outstanding presentation at ECOC 2014. You can read all the criteria for eligibility right here. To compete for best student paper Award: • The principal author should be a student at the time of submission of his/her paper. • The student should apply by ticking the appropriate box, in the on-line paper submission form. • The student should be registered to the conference. No financial help will be provided for conference registration, transportation and accommodation by the conference organizers. • The student author should be the presenter of his/her work at the conference. Seven finalists will be preselected by the seven sub-committees in their respective areas during the paper review meeting in June. The finalists will be immediately notified that they have been short-listed, and will be asked to deliver a second presentation for the jury at the conference, in addition to their scheduled presentation in the conference programme. The jury will consist of the Conference General Chairs, the Technical Programme Committee Co-Chairs and a representative of the sponsor, ADVA. The representative of the sponsor will have no voting rights. The jury will announce their decisions during the closing ceremony of ECOC 2014. The winner will receive a check of 2 000€ and two runners-ups will receive 1 000€.
