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.
