Photonics in Switching and Computing (PSC)

 

Photonics in Switching and Computing addresses all aspects of optical switching components, functions, building blocks, and architecture, within existing and emerging communication systems, networks, and computers.

Photonics in Switching and Computing highlights the latest research activities in areas related to "Photonics in Switching" and to “Photonics in Computing” will be presented in an environment that is conducive to in-depth and open discussions of the trends in this area. Research topics include optical switching technologies for dense integration of photonic and electronic functionalities operating side-by-side; various aspects of photonics in computing systems such as photonics for AI and quantum photonics; optical subsystem technologies and architectures for 5G networks and beyond, and inter- and intra-datacenter interconnects; and optical networking and computing architectures including short-reach optical interconnects, optical packet/burst switching routers, rapidly reconfigurable networks, and next-generation protocols and architectures.
