GSU to Host iWON 2013 in December
On December 9, the Department of Computer Science will host the International Workshop on Optical Networking (iWON 2013) at Georgia State’s Rialto Center for the Arts.
iWON will give optical networking researchers a forum to discuss the latest research and innovation in the design of smart optical network architectures, protocols, algorithms, services, and applications. The workshop will feature invited talks, panel discussions, presentations, and posters. There is no registration fee for the workshop, and meals are provided at no charge.
iWON is now accepting submissions in the form of a two-page extended abstract or position paper. The deadline for submissions is August 2, with notification of acceptance by September 20 and final versions due on October 18. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to include a full version of the paper (up to six pages) in the workshop proceedings.
Associate professor Xiaojun Cao is chairing the workshop. Department chair Yi Pan is on the workshop’s steering committee, and associate professor Anu Bourgeois is the publicity chair. Recent Ph.D. graduate Yang Wang is a member of the program committee.
iWON is being held at the same time as IEEE GLOBECOM 2013, although the two events are not connected. GLOBECOM, which is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, is expected to draw about 2,000 researchers and industry leaders to downtown Atlanta during December 9–13.
