The 2014 Optical Interconnects Conference, sponsored by the IEEE Photonics Society, announces a Call for Papers for the 25th anniversary of this premier conference, dedicated to bringing advanced interconnect technologies from research labs to commercial realization. Initially conceived as the Workshop on Interconnections within High Speed Digital Systems, the Optical Interconnects Conference has now evolved to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration between researchers, engineers, system architects and programmers to solve the challenges of high performance interconnect systems, especially in future petascale and exascale platforms in supercomputers and datacenters. The conference is scheduled for 4 – 7 May 2014 at the Loews Coronado Bay Hotel in Coronado, CA, USA.
Original research papers are being sought by the Optical Interconnects Conference 2014 in the following topic areas: interconnect system architectures & applications; datacenter & supercomputer interconnects; optical transmitters, receivers & components; ultra low power and/or high bitrate interconnects; fundamental limits & novel concepts in electrical and wireless interconnects; silicon photonics, hybrid & monolithic photonics integration, end-to-end (electrical-optical-electrical) links; optical switching devices, architectures & control networks; emerging interconnect standards; and interconnect packaging.
A highlight of previous workshops, a special Working Group Problem Session challenges participants to solve an optical interconnect application problem. In a four-hour Sunday afternoon session, attendees will break out into small groups combining diverse skill areas to brainstorm solutions to a predefined design problem. These individual groups will present their findings in a Monday evening session.
Papers will be accepted immediately, and the paper submission deadline has been extended to 7 February 2014. Authors will be notified by late March of the status of their paper. Accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplore digital library shortly after the conference, providing worldwide exposure for all authors.
