ICOCN 2015: Call for papers
14th International Conference on Optical Communications and Networks
July 3-5, 2015 – Nanjing, P. R. China
International Conference on Optical Communications and Networks (ICOCN) serves as an international forum for researchers involved in all aspects of optical communications and networks. ICOCN is held annually, and is sponsored by IEEE Photonics Society. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be included in IEEE Xplore (indexed by EI Compendex). ICOCN 2015 will be held on July 3-5, 2015 in Nanjing, China. We would like to invite you to participate in this conference, to share your recent research results in optical communications and networks, and to take the opportunity to interact with researchers in the area. ICOCN 2015 will address cutting-edge research in the areas ranging from optical devices, subsystems, to networks. There are four tracks including (but not limited to)
Track 1: Photonic devices and integration
Ø Semiconductor lasers, modulators, amplifiers and detectors
Ø Optoelectronic hybrid, monolithic integration and on-chip subsystems
Ø Free-space or MEMS optical devices
Ø Other photonic devices for switching, interconnection and equalization, etc.
Track 2: Optical networks & transmission systems
Ø Network Architectures, Management, and Applications
Ø Optical network planning and resource optimization
Ø Optical Transmission Systems, Subsystems and Technologies
Ø Access, Local area, Home, Data center networks, etc.
Track 3: Microwave photonics and analog optical systems
Ø Analog optical links for microwave and millimeter-wave transmission
Ø Microwave photonic signal generation and processing
Ø Photonic techniques for antennas and beam-forming
Ø Terahertz (THz) technologies and applications, etc.
Track 4: Fiber optics, fiber devices and optical sensing
Ø Fiber design, fabrication and characterization
Ø Nonlinear and ultra-fast fiber optics
Ø Novel applications of special fibers and fiber devices
Ø Optical sensing technologies, etc.
The conference will be financially supported by NSFC, Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz, etc. Ten student papers will be selected for Best Student Paper awards. We look forward to seeing you at ICOCN2015, Nanjing!
