Photonic Networks and Devices (Networks)

Photonic devices and networking concepts that drive future network scaling and performance for next-generation applications.

NETWORKS brings together researchers and engineers from various communities that intersect in today's applications that require photonic networks. The new applications and network architectures will both drive and utilize innovations in optical transmission and photonic devices. Growing demands for bandwidth, flexibility, programmability, resilience, security, low cost, high integration, high functionality, low power consumption, and small footprint require novel solutions in photonic networks and devices. New management paradigms in the framework of software-defined networking are needed for efficient and dynamic programmability of virtualized network resources.  
NETWORKS focuses on fostering research that supports the future scaling and performance requirements of emerging applications, including spectrally and spatially multiplexed systems, data centers and data-center interconnections, cloud infrastructure, high-performance computing, and content delivery.
