Photonics in Switching and Computing highlights the latest research activities in areas related to "Photonics in Switching" and to “Photonics in Computing”. This year's conference will highlight the synergy between photonic technologies, systems and computing/networking architectures.

Research topics include optical computing, photonic neuromorphic computing, 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.
