The first OptoElectronics and Communications Conference (OECC) was held in Chiba, Japan, 1996, as an annual conference for the researchers and engineers working in the fields of optoelectronics, optical fiber transmission, and photonic network systems in the Asia Pacific region to report, discuss, exchange, and generate ideas which advance the disciplines of optoelectronics and optical communications. Throughout the years, OECC has become the foremost international conferences held annually in the Asia-Pacific region.
OECC 2021 will be held in Hong Kong during July 3-7, 2021. The Conference is organized by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and co-sponsored by the Optical Society and IEEE Photonics Society. Due to the situation of COVID-19, it is transformed to an online conference. The local organizing committee will try its best to keep live interactions among participants online. All presented papers will be indexed by EI compendex and available in Optics InfoBase (OSA) and IEEE Xplore.
OECC 2021 will continue the footsteps of its predecessors, to serve as a great platform for researchers to discuss and explore advanced technologies of optoelectronics and communications from device to system levels. We welcome your contribution to submit papers relevant to the following topics:
S1. Core/Access/Data Center Networks and Subsystems
S2. Transmission Systems and technologies
S3. Optical Fibers, Fiber Amplifiers and Fiber Devices
S4. Optical Active Devices and Modules
S5. Optical Passive Devices and Modules
S6. Space Division Multiplexing and Related Devices
S7. Nanophotonics and Integrated Devices
S8. Optical Sensing and Measurements
S9. Biophotonics and Imaging
