Extended paper submission deadline May 1

The ECOC 2017 exhibition in Gothenburg, Sweden, has already surpassed the 2016 exhibition in size among strong industry confidence, and ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg promises to be a success. The conference organisers are requesting any further interested parties and potential speakers to submit papers and register for the conference as soon as possible.

The exhibition organiser Nexus Media commented, “The Nordic countries are happy to welcome ECOC back to Scandinavia, a high-tech innovation hub that successfully merges communications and optical technologies within a creative business and scientific context. We encourage you to contribute with a paper to ECOC 2017 and participate in the conference.”

ECOC is one of the premier international conferences in the optical communications field, with an exciting and comprehensive coverage of cutting-edge basic and applied research. Each year, ECOC offers unique insights into leading developments in optical communications and unparalleled networking with over 5 000 of your colleagues from all over the world.

The conference features a distinguished list of internationally recognised invited and tutorial speakers together with the industry’s own contributed peer-reviewed research in a high-quality technical program promoting the exchange of ideas and interaction with industry colleagues world-wide.

The ECOC technical program is divided into eight areas that cover the full width of component, system and network technologies relating to fibre optic communications. This year’s social program includes a special reception, dinner and concert. And as usual ECOC will be co-located with the ECOC Exhibition – Europe’s largest exhibition in the fibre optic communication industry.

The city of Gothenburg is in the heart of Sweden, with a characteristic maritime scenery at the waterfront and the special Nordic light which has inspired artists for centuries.
