Conference Call for Papers

The optical interconnects (OI) technical area is concerned with technical advances pertaining to the design and/or realization of components, devices, and architectures motivated to support high-speed optical interconnection at all levels – including intra-chip, chip-to-chip, board-to-board, and module-to-module technologies. The OI subcommittee solicits papers in the following topic areas:

• Optics for the datacenter (e.g. silicon photonics, VCSELs, etc.)
• Passive components (e.g. waveguides, WDM components, optical I/O, etc.)
• Active components (e.g. lasers, switches, modulators, and photodetectors for high speed/bandwidth interconnection)
• Integration and packaging solutions
• Advanced modulation or signaling schemes
• Advanced multiplexing schemes
• Switching and signal routing technologies
• Transceiver and module technologies
• Other emerging or novel interconnection solutions (e.g. free-space, underwater, etc.)

Overview

Top Research Topics at IEEE Optical Interconnects Conference?

  • Optoelectronics (42.65%)
  • Silicon photonics (34.80%)
  • Electronic engineering (33.82%)

The primary areas of discussion in IEEE Optical Interconnects Conference are Optoelectronics, Silicon photonics, Electronic engineering, Optics and Photonics. Optoelectronics research featured in the event incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Laser and Modulation. While work presented in the conference provided substantial information on Silicon photonics, it also covered topics in Photonic integrated circuit, Chip, Bandwidth (signal processing), Transceiver and Hybrid silicon laser.

Some problems in Electronic engineering that were presented in the conference overlapped with concepts under Optical performance monitoring, Optical cross-connect, Bandwidth (computing) and Electrical engineering. The event explores topics in Optical performance monitoring which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Optical modulation amplitude and Optical interconnect. The Optical cross-connect study featured in it draws parallels with the field of Optical burst switching.

In particular, the Electrical engineering works presented emphasize discussions on CMOS. Optics study tackled is connected to the field of Transmission (telecommunications). Photonics and Electronic circuit are closely related fields of research discussed in the conference.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A monolithic 56 Gb/s CMOS integrated nanophotonic PAM-4 transmitter (33 citations)
  • 75% efficient wide bandwidth grating couplers in a 45 nm microelectronics CMOS process (22 citations)
  • A 40 Gb/s PAM4 silicon microring resonator modulator transmitter in 65nm CMOS (19 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at IEEE Optical Interconnects Conference:

The published articles explore disciplines such as Silicon photonics, Optoelectronics, Wavelength-division multiplexing, Electronic engineering and CMOS. The study of Optoelectronics in the conference publications encompasses disciplines such as Bandwidth (signal processing), as well as fields such as Efficient energy use, Photonic integrated circuit and Silicon on insulator, all of which overlap with one another. The Electronic engineering study tackled in the published papers is a key component of adjacent topics in the area of Optical performance monitoring.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Telecommunications
  • Optics
  • Electrical engineering

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference mainly deals with areas of study such as Optoelectronics, Silicon, Photonics, Silicon photonics and Modulation. The event aims to bridge the gap between the study of Optoelectronics and Electro-absorption modulator. The conference addresses concerns in Silicon which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Radio frequency, CMOS, Resonator and Efficient energy use.

While Photonics is the focus of the event, it also provided insights into the studies of Optical fiber, Electronic engineering, Wavelength-division multiplexing and Chip. It emphasizes research on Electronic engineering, which includes concerns such as Multiplexing. In the event, Power dividers and directional couplers, Optical interconnect, Bandwidth (signal processing), Transceiver and Phase shift module are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Silicon photonics research.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Energy Efficiency Analysis of Frequency Comb Sources for Silicon Photonic Interconnects (5 citations)
  • Low-Voltage 60Gb/s NRZ and 100Gb/s PAM4 O-Band Silicon Ring Modulator (4 citations)
  • High-Performance Single-Mode Polymer Waveguide Devices for Chip-Scale Optical Interconnects (4 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 4.55% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 52.38% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 14.29% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 9.52% of all publications and 23.81% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
