Call for Papers

Following the tradition of Optical Network Design and Modelling conference, ONDM 2014 will address cutting-edge research in optical networking, as well as topics relating optical networking to the other areas and disciplines, such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), integration of optical and wireless networks or the role of optical network for the future Internet design.
The scope of the conference includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Optical network performance modelling
  • Advances in Optical Network Theory
  • Transparent and translucent optical networks
  • Routing and spectrum assignment and flex-grid optical networks
  • Optical networks for future Internet design
  • Optical network control and management
  • Energy efficiency in optical networks
  • Optical network survivability
  • Novel architectures for optical routers and switches
  • Optical networks to support cloud computing
  • Software defined optical networking
  • Optical access network architectures and protocols
  • Techno-economic analysis of optical networks
  • High speed optical LANs including optical wireless networks
  • Field trials, new applications and experiments in optical networking
  • Convergence of optical and wireless networks
  • Security and privacy in optical networks

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished research results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in the area of optical network design and modelling.

Authors of regular papers must submit their paper(s) and/or poster(s) using the EDAS online application.

Authors of invited papers must submit their paper(s) and/or poster(s) using the  EDAS dedicated online submission application.

All papers must be submitted as PDF files, which should not exceed 6 pages in double-column IEEE Transactions style. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published in IEEE Xplore digital library. For paper templates and further instructions on how to prepare your manuscript, please consult the IEEE Author Digital Toolbox.

The accepted full papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. Accepted full papers will be submitted for indexing to multiple abstract and indexing partners.
Authors of a number of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a Special Issue of the Springer Photonic Network Communications journal.
