Photonic Networks and Devices (Networks)

13 - 16 July 2014
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, San Diego, California, USA

This new meeting is aimed at bringing together researchers and engineers from various communities that intersect in today's new generations of applications that will require photonic networks. It is expected that the applications and network architectures will both drive and take advantage of new innovations in optical transmission and photonic photonic device and integration technologies. New demands for bandwidth, flexibility, low cost, high levels of integration, high functionality, lower power consumption and heat dissipation, capacity scaling, small footprint and other factors will require new innovation in photonic devices and integration. Photonic device technologies will help drive systems and architectures to scale to petascale and exascale bisectional bandwidths and 10s of terabit transmission and beyond. The meeting is aimed at research that helps that span new photonic devices and photonic networks to support the future scaling and performance needed by leading edge and future applications, including data centers, cloud infrastructure and video distribution.

Congress Special Events

General Session with Plenary Speakers
Monday, 14 July, 08:30 - 10:00
Monte Carolo & St. Tropez

Yuri VlasovApplications of Integrated Photonics Technology - From Optical Interconnects to Neurophotonics, Yurii Vlasov; IBM Research, USA
Abstract: The IBM Silicon Nanophotonics technology enables cost-efficient optical links that connect racks, modules, and chips together with ultra-low power single-die optical transceivers. I will give an overview of its historical development, technology differentiators, current status and a roadmap.

Norman L. SwensonSignal Processing ASICs for Optical Fiber Communications,
Norman L. Swenson; ClariPhy, USA
Abstract: Signal processing for optical communications has made tremendous strides in the last decade.  This talk gives an overview on recent progress in this area, focusing on commercially available ASICs and ongoing research to advance the state of the art.
