The Telecommunication Networks Engineering Group of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena is pleased to announce the 20th International Conference on Optical Network Design and Modeling (ONDM 2016) which will be kindly hosted at the School of Telecommunications, Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, Cartagena, Spain, May 9-12, 2016. ONDM 2016 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and the IEEE Communication Society.
The School of Telecommunication Engineering is located next to the seafront and the marina, walking-distance to city centre, cultural and touristic places. Cartagena is famous of its unique artistic heritage, with a number of landmarks such as the Roman Theatre and a lot of Phoenician, Roman, Byzantine and Moorish remains.
The scope of the Conference is concentrated on cutting-edge research in established areas such as optical networking, optical systems, as well as emerging topics like novel Internet architectures, new optical network architectures for the Cloud/DataCenter, wireless optical networks, photonic integrated networks and SDN-NFV developments in optical networks. Some of the addressed topics will be the following:
Authors must submit full papers (minimum 3 pages and maximum 6 pages in standard IEEE conference style) describing original, previously unpublished research results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing forefront research and development in the area of optical network design and modeling. Selected papers will be invited to submit to an extended version to ONDM 2016 Special Issue in IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications and Networking.
ONDM 2016 will include a short workshop on integration of Big Data and Optical Networking. Relevant speakers will be invited to provide their vision on the topic through short talks and panel discussion.
Seneca Foundation - Agency for Science and Technology in the Region of Murcia sponsored the conference through the Program "Jiménez de la Espada" for Mobility, Cooperation and Internationalization (ref. 19976/OC/15).
