Welcome to the 25th Anniversary of the Optical Interconnects Conference at Lowes Coronado Bay, Coronado, California!

 

This is, indeed, a very special Workshop on Interconnections within High Speed Digital Systems wherein we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this Workshop and the third as the IEEE Photonics Society Optical Interconnects Conference! To help mark this important milestone, the event is being held in Coronado, California to help accommodate the busy schedules of the broadening cross-section of researchers, engineers and thought leaders from many disciplines who attend to focus on advanced interconnect technologies that span reaches from on-chip to across an enterprise.

This 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, all attendees have the option to participate in working groups to discuss and design a conceptual solution to a predefined design problem germane to the world of interconnects science. The problem sessions establish an overall focus for the conference as well as important background in the topic areas - enabling all participants to more richly engage throughout the conference. This year the problem sessions will be held on Sunday afternoon, May 4th and will feature a problem related to optical interconnects.  The problem session is a fun, very engaging, ice breaking way to meet people with skills that complement your own.  We urge you to consider arriving on Sunday, May 4th before 4:00pm so you can take advantage of the opportunity.

We extend our personal thanks to each of the Program Chairs and the Program Committee Members who have volunteered and invested their time realizing this conference. We also thank our invited speakers for sharing their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for new and emerging interconnect technologies and architectures. We believe that the combined efforts of the organizers and speakers will continue the great tradition this conference series has achieved its esteemed reputation. Finally, we want to express our sincere appreciation to the Photonics Society staff for their professional organization and arrangements for this conference.

We look forward to seeing all of you at this 25th Anniversary Conference!
