Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom)

Signal processing is essential in today’s photonic communication systems and networks including backbone metro and long-haul applications, data center interconnects (DCI), edge computing, optical access networks, free space communications, and so forth.

SPPCom covers the state-of-the-art advances in digital and analog (electronic and optical) signal processing techniques for all of these applications, to address the ever-increasing capacity demand, reduce cost per bit, and enable future photonic communication services.

SPPCom brings together researchers and engineers from various areas to share their knowledge, cutting-edge research and visions.
