OPTICS is part of ICETE, the 16th International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications.
Registration to OPTICS allows free access to all other ICETE conferences.

ICETE 2019 will be held in conjunction with ICSOFT 2019 and DATA 2019.

Registration to ICETE allows free access to the ICSOFT and DATA conferences (as a non-speaker).

The purpose of OPTICS, the International Conference on Optical Communication Systems, is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on any of the optical communication components of an optical communication system, or the system itself. Optical fiber is currently the main means for high-rate transmission in communication networks, while supporting the needed bandwidth and requirements that are expected to be imposed on the front-haul network to support the 5G vision. While 5G is designed to support a variety of heterogeneous applications such as massive Internet of Things (IoT), mission critical ultra-reliable and low latency machine-type communications and energy-efficient services, optical fiber communications and photonic networking systems are of paramount importance for driving crucial changes in the architecture of our telecommunication networks.  In the last years, there is a great deal of ongoing research efforts that span the entire protocol stack of optical networks, with representative areas being architecture of optical components, optoelectronics, wavelength routing, energy efficiency, flex-grid optical networks and 5G-enabled optical backhaul architectures.
