Following the tradition of previous editions, ONDM 2018 will focus on cutting-edge research in optical networking and associated new services and applications. It will also examine recent trends in networking including 5G as a new end-to-end network vision, big data, cloud, content delivery, and artificial intelligence. The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited, to:

  • Novel optical network architectures;
  • Optical network control, management and orchestration including SDN and NFV solutions;
  • Slicing, virtualisation and multi-tenancy techniques for optical networks;
  • Optical local/access/metro network solutions in support of 5G infrastructures;
  • Optical and wireless network convergence;
  • Optical networks in support of intra- / inter-data center connectivity and cloud computing;
  • Machine learning techniques for optical networks;
  • Advances in optical network modelling and optimisation;
  • Routing and spectrum assignment in fixed and flex-grid optical networks;
  • Novel optical node designs including disaggregation and open optical line systems;
  • Optical networks exploiting photonic integrated circuits;
  • Energy efficiency in optical networks;
  • Optical network availability, resilience and survivability;
  • Security and privacy in optical networks
  • Architectures and solutions for quantum key distribution and post-quantum security;
  • Optical networking in support of industries such as transportation, power grids, etc.;
  • Techno-economic studies of optical networks.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers (max. 6 pages in standard IEEE conference style) describing original, unpublished research results, not currently under review, addressing forefront research and development in the area of optical network design and modeling. Papers Submission Template.
