technical scope

The call for regular papers for ECOC is now officially closed.
You may still submit new and significant research in a rapidly advancing area to the post-deadline session.
All details here.

The perimeters of the technical subcommittees have been modified with respect to the past editions of ECOC and are defined as follows :

Technical scope

1 - Fibres, Fibre Devices and Fibre Amplifiers

Optical fibres, their design, fabrication and characterisation, physics of light propagation in optical fibres, fibre amplifiers and fibre lasers, devices to couple light into fibre, as well as fibre-based devices for telecommunication, data communications, sensing and other applications.

2 - Waveguide and Optoelectronic Devices

Design, fabrication, testing of performances 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, based on various material systems.

3 - Digital and Optical Signal Processing

Modeling, design, and implementation of digital and/or optical techniques, for signal processing for long-haul, metro or access networks. This area includes digital signal processing algorithms for transmitters and coherent receivers, error correction coding, but also optical regeneration and any other schemes for impairment mitigation. Papers reporting signal processing in a transmission system should fall in the 5th topical area. 

4 - Subsystems for Optical Networking AND FOR Datacoms

Modeling, design, implementation and test of optical, optoelectronic, or electrical subsystems, including line terminals with advanced modulation formats, performance monitoring devices, add-drop multiplexers, optical switches, optical packet routers, optical interconnects, and original measurement equipment. In addition, the area considers interconnection devices, subsystems and architectures that address the challenges of Datacom and Computercom.

5 - Point-to-Point Transmission Systems

Modeling, design, lab and field implementation of optical transmission fiber links, highlighting system-level implications of physical impairments and impairment mitigation techniques. Contributions to this area are concerned with aspects such as capacity, reach, flexibility, of optical transmission systems and solutions to overcome the current limitations. 

6 - Core, Metro and Data Center Networks

Modeling, design, architecture, and planning of optical circuit and packet switched core, metro, inter and intra data center networks. This includes control and management functions and integration with higher layer services. It also covers aspects of energy savings, successful network deployments and field trials.

7 - Access, Local Area and Home Networks

Networking aspects of broadband optical access, local-area and home networks. It covers FTTx, passive optical networks, radio-over-fibre systems, optical wireless and free space systems, hybrid wireless/optical solutions, in-building networks. It also comprises aspects of energy savings, successful mass deployments and field trials. The topic of optical interconnects is covered within the 4th topical area.

Co-organized with Special CLEO Focus : Fundamental Photonics for Future Telecommunications

Following on from successful conferences held since 2006, the European Physical Society and CLEO Europe-EQEC in collaboration with the Chairs of ECOC 2014 are delighted to announce the organisation of a special CLEO Focus Meeting on Fundamental Photonics for Future Telecommunications, to be held as part of ECOC 2014.

New developments and trends on emerging and highly forward-looking research in photonics will be at the heart of this special CLEO Focus Meeting, complementary to the regular ECOC sessions. The meeting will showcase state of the art results which bridge the gap between basic science and applications.

The scope includes, but is not limited to, nanophotonics, nonlinear optics, novel materials, novel devices, nonlinear dynamics, quantum optics, emerging ultrafast technologies, new concepts in optical manipulation and waveguiding etc.
