OSA, IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE ComSoc Partner on Optical Networking Journal

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27—The Optical Society (OSA), IEEE Photonics Society (formerly IEEE LEOS) and IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc) today announced they are partnering to combine two existing publications into one, called the Journal of Optical Communications and Networking (JOCN). The combined journal will cover theoretical and practical advances in the architecture and systems aspects of state-of-the-art optical communications networks. It will launch in June 2009 and be promoted at this year’s Optical Fiber Communication/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) in San Diego. Keren Bergman of Columbia University and Vincent W.S. Chan of MIT will serve as co-editors-in-chief.

“OSA and IEEE are excited to partner on this new endeavor,” said Bergman. “JOCN will provide professionals in the optical communications field with one comprehensive journal highlighting the latest advances in telecommunications networking, from network security to next generation Ethernet and beyond.”

JOCN will combine OSA’s monthly Journal of Optical Networking and the Optical Communications and Networking Series published three times per year as a supplement to the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications. OSA and IEEE will share journal operations, with OSA managing peer review and IEEE overseeing production. JOCN will be published online monthly and will be available in a quarterly printed compilation. OSA’s Optics InfoBase, IEEE’s Xplore and ComSoc’s Digital Library will carry the final published version of all JOCN papers. More information on paper submission topics and submission guidelines are available on the JOCN Web site.

“I am a firm believer that architecture development and experimental work need to be closely coupled and the communities working on each segment should communicate often and fluently,” said Chan. “JOCN will serve as the bridge and we expect it will help accelerate optical communication and network research in years to come. This journal is indispensible for researchers at the forefront of optical networking and communications.”

About OSA
Uniting more than 70,000 professionals from 134 countries, the Optical Society (OSA) brings together the global optics community through its programs and initiatives. Since 1916 OSA has worked to advance the common interests of the field, providing educational resources to the scientists, engineers and business leaders who work in the field by promoting the science of light and the advanced technologies made possible by optics and photonics. OSA publications, events, technical groups and programs foster optics knowledge and scientific collaboration among all those with an interest in optics and photonics.

About the IEEE
Celebrating its 125th anniversary, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) is the world’s largest technical professional society. Through its more than 375,000 members in 150 countries, the organization is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics. Dedicated to the advancement of technology, the IEEE publishes 30 percent of the world’s literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, and has developed nearly 900 active industry standards. The organization annually sponsors more than 850 conferences worldwide. Additional information about the IEEE can be found at www.ieee.org.

About IEEE ComSoc
The IEEE Communications Society has over 40,000 members and is the second largest of IEEE’s 38 technical societies. Founded in 1952, it has become the major international forum for the exchange of ideas on communications and information networking. For more information, see www.comsoc.org.

About IEEE Photonics Society
The IEEE Photonics Society (formerly IEEE LEOS) is focused on advancing the interests of its members and the photonics, laser, and optoelectronics professional community by: providing opportunities for information exchange, continuing education, and professional growth; publishing journals, sponsoring conferences, and supporting local chapter and student activities. The IEEE Photonics Society formally recognizes the professional contributions of members, represents the photonics, laser, and optoelectronics community, and serves as its advocate within the IEEE, the broader scientific and technical community, and society at large.
