The IEEE Photonics Society Optical Interconnects Conference seeks to facilitate collaboration required to drive new interconnect architectures and technologies from concepts in research labs to commercial realities. To this end, the conference covers the complete spectrum of high performance interconnect challenges in network systems, architectures, applications, subsystems, and devices. In addition, the crucial role that any interconnect strategy plays can only be fully realized when optimized at the system level. This is particularly so in large future peta- and exa-scale platforms in datacenters and supercomputers. So we look forward to the participation of system architects, programmers and everyone researching the interconnect role in a more self-aware next generation platform.
The conference provides a mix of high caliber invited talks in addition to refereed oral and poster papers, each providing a unique opportunity to learn and exchange ideas with the authors. In addition, this year the conference includes an evening panel discussion entitled “Optical Interconnects Supply Chain in 2020: Who Owns the Interface?”. The panelists who are recognized experts in the industry and academia will bring different views to create thought provoking exchanges. All attendees will have a chance to ask questions and participate in exciting technical discussions.
Available software demonstrations:
OptiSPICE: Opto-Electronic Circuit Design Software
OptiFDTD: Finite-Difference Time-Domain Software

OptiBPM: Waveguide Optics Design Software
OptiFiber: Optical Fiber Design Software
OptiGrating: Integrated and Fiber Optical Gratings Design Software
