Call for
Papers
This conference provides a forum to present the latest advances in technology and product developments in next-generation optical communication including coherent, space- and mode-division multiplexed optical transmission systems. The conference program encompasses components and subsystems related to next-generation optical communication technology as well as coherent, space- and mode-division multiplexed optical communication systems. Early-stage concepts and controversial solutions are also welcome and encouraged.

We particularly invite students to submit their thesis work to this conference. Students who are first authors will be eligible for the Optical Communications Best Student Paper Awards.

Topics for the conference include but are not limited to:
  • advanced components for coherent transmitters and receivers
  • photonic and optoelectronic integration
  • subsystems including DSP algorithms
  • coherent transport systems
  • coherent detection for networking including access networks
  • components for space-division multiplexing
  • components for mode-division multiplexing
  • electrical and optical signal processing for space- and mode-division multiplexing
  • space- and mode-division multiplexed optical communication systems
  • SDM Networks.


Optical Communications Best Paper Awards

We are pleased to announce Best Paper Awards in Optical Communications, sponsored by Corning and NTT Electronics. These awards will recognize the outstanding work of students and professionals who present the most notable recent results with broad impact in the area of optical communications. Qualifying papers will be evaluated by the awards committee. Manuscripts will be judged based on technical merit, impact, and clarity. The winners will be announced during the first day of the Optical Communications conferences and the presenting authors will be awarded a certificate and cash prize.

To be eligible for the Best Student Paper Award, you must:
  • be a student without a doctoral degree (undergraduate, graduate, or PhD student)
  • be listed as an author on an accepted paper within conferences OE131, OE132, or OE133
  • have conducted the majority of the work to be presented
  • submit your manuscript online by 12 December 2018
  • present your paper as scheduled
  • be present at the Awards Ceremony.
To be eligible for the Best Technical Paper Award, you must:
  • be a post-doc or early career professional
  • be listed as an author on an accepted paper within conferences OE131, OE132, or OE133
  • have conducted the majority of the work to be presented
  • submit your manuscript online by 12 December 2018
  • present your paper as scheduled
  • be present at the Awards Ceremony.
How to Apply After your Manuscript is submitted online (by 12 December 2018), send an email to nasfine@stny.rr.com stating your desire to be considered, and for which award you qualify.



IMPORTANT: The Proceedings for this conference will be published on the SPIE Digital Library on the first day of the meeting. Manuscript submission (6-page minimum) is obligatory for participation in the conference. Note the earlier manuscript due date of 12 December 2018.
