ETN WON in IEEE Summer Topical Meeting Series
Prof Wladek Forysiak and Dr Antonio Napoli from the ETN WON consortium together with colleagues, Dr Leily Sehar Kiani, from Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLNL), USA and Dr Maria Ionescu from Nokia Bell Laboratories, France, will act as co-chairs to organise a topic area in “Ultra-wideband optical fibre communication systems” at the IEEE Summer Topical Meeting Series 2021 which will take place on 19-21 July 2021 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
More details are coming in due course.
About IEEE Summer Topical Meeting Series
The IEEE Summer Topicals Meeting Series serves as an international forum to facilitate information exchange between various technical communities using or affected by rapidly growing areas of technology or “Hot Topics” related to the general field of Photonics. This intimate environment provides the opportunity to learn about emerging fields and to interact with the research and technology leaders. Historically, the conference hosts 4-7 individual topics and attracts 200+ participants with 30-50 participants attending each topic.

Ultra-wideband optical fibre communication systems
Ultra-wideband (UWB) optical fibre communication systems have emerged in recent years as a major topic in the field with the potential to address the near-to-mid-term capacity increase requirements in optical networking. Systems based on UWB technology are potentially attractive because they leverage the massive investment in the single mode optical fibre plant already deployed in millions of km worldwide, by making as much as possible use of the low loss transmission window of optical fibre (~1300-1600nm). This topic area seeks to gather together key researchers and stakeholders with interests in UWB optical fibre communications from around the world to explore the current state-of-the-art in UWB component technologies, sub-systems, architectures, and systems. We aim to stimulate an open discussion on the latest advances, opportunities and challenges faced by research scientists and development engineers working on systems, and stimulate new ideas and collaborations.
The topic area seeks contributions related to ultra-wideband fibre systems and include:
- Optical fibre component technologies and physical integration
- Optical fibre communication system demonstrations
- Optical fibre communication modelling and performance prediction
- System design and operation
- Spectral power optimisation, bandwidth allocation and network management
- Optical power management techniques and capacity optimization
- Application of novel techniques such as machine learning to UWB systems and related technologies
- Cost and energy performance analyses for network applications
