Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom)

Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom)

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

SPPCom is focused on all aspects of optical and electronic signal processing for photonic communication systems ranging from on-chip communications to ultra-long haul transmission.

Signal processing is required in many types of photonic communication systems and networks - from on-chip data transfer to ultra-long haul transmission. As spectrally efficient modulation formats become more prevalent in these applications, advances in the requisite signal processing for transmitters and receivers are ever more important. This includes techniques for mitigating the effects of transmission impairments and non-ideal components/devices, key transmitter/receiver functions, forward error correction, and enabling technologies. Software defined networks, space division multiplexed systems, Tb/s superchannel systems, and broadband hybrid wireless-optical communication systems are of particular interest.

Topics Categories

  • Spectrally efficient modulation formats and detection schemes
  • Channel equalization and compensation
  • Polarization, clock, carrier, and phase recovery in coherent receivers
  • Channel estimation, distortion identification, and performance monitoring
  • Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)
  • Nyquist and near-Nyquist signaling
  • Signal processing for space-division multiplexing
  • MIMO algorithms and implementations
  • Forward error correction
  • DAC, ADC and DSP technologies
  • DSP complexity and power consumption
  • All-optical techniques for wavelength conversion and translation, regeneration, correlation, and mitigation of transmission impairments
  • Real-time demonstration of high-speed electronic circuits and subsystems
  • Applications to access, metro, regional, long haul and ultra-long-haul networks
  • Applications to short-reach systems using single- and multi-mode fiber

Coming Soon.  Please check back in early 2014.

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

SPPCom Symposium: Machine Learning Concepts in Optical Communication Systems
Tuesday, 15 July, 10:30 - 12:30
Portofino Room

The goal of this symposium is to bridge the gap between researchers working in the areas of optical communication and machine learning. More specifically, the symposium will address powerful statistical signal processing methods, used by the machine learning community, and link them to current problems in optical communications.  For more details about this event visit the Symposium webpage.
Joint Poster Sessions
Tuesday, 15 July, 13:30 - 15:00
Terrazza Ballroom

Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Congress Panel Session & Networking Event
