Conference Call for Papers

OFC is the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. The program is comprehensive — from research to marketplace, from components to systems and networks and from technical sessions to the exhibition. OFC draws attendees from all corners of the globe to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections and move the industry forward.

The technical program is organized by four tracks: D-, N-, S- and the newly-formed SC-Q.

D-Track — In general, this track evaluates papers studying the design, fabrication and characterization of devices, components and fibers. Devices and PICs evaluated in a system should be submitted to the S-Track under the appropriate subcategory.
N-Track — Focuses on the networking and service aspects of networks and systems.
S-Track — Evaluates papers at the subsystem and system level at the areas outlined in the subcategory titles and the subcategory sub-bullets.
SC-Q Track — Papers related to devices, systems and networks for quantum communications should be submitted to SC-Q. While commercially sensitive aspects can be omitted from submitted papers, the remaining content must have enough technical substance to meet OFC standards.

Overview

Top Research Topics at Optical Fiber Communication Conference?

  • Optics (37.18%)
  • Optoelectronics (30.38%)
  • Electronic engineering (28.54%)

The discussions in Optical Fiber Communication Conference mainly cover the fields of Optics, Optoelectronics, Electronic engineering, Wavelength-division multiplexing and Optical fiber. The event encompasses presentations on Optics, specifically Optical amplifier, Dispersion-shifted fiber, Dispersion (optics), Wavelength and Optical filter. The tackled Dispersion-shifted fiber research is interrelated with Polarization-maintaining optical fiber which concerns subjects like Plastic optical fiber.

The study on Optoelectronics presented is investigated in conjunction with research in Laser. The research on Electronic engineering featured in the conference combines topics in other fields like Optical performance monitoring, Transmission (telecommunications), Bit error rate and Modulation. Some problems in Optical performance monitoring that were presented in the conference overlapped with concepts under Optical modulation amplitude, Optical cross-connect and Optical switch.

Many of the studies tackled connect Transmission (telecommunications) with a similar field of study like Signal processing. The studies in Wavelength-division multiplexing featured incorporate elements of Multiplexing and Computer network. Studies on Optical fiber discussed in the event link to the field of Fiber.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Supercontinuum generation in photonic crystal fiber (3038 citations)
  • Optical phase-shift-keyed transmission (829 citations)
  • Optical fiber sensor technology (792 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Optical Fiber Communication Conference:

The most cited papers investigate areas of study like Optics, Electronic engineering, Wavelength-division multiplexing, Optoelectronics and Transmission (telecommunications). Bit error rate, Modulation and Signal processing are some topics wherein Electronic engineering research discussed in the most cited publications has an impact. While Wavelength-division multiplexing is the focus of the most cited publications, it also provides insights into the studies of Computer network and Spectral efficiency.

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

  • Optics
  • Computer network
  • Quantum mechanics

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference facilitates discussions on Optoelectronics, Electronic engineering, Signal processing, Transmission (telecommunications) and Optics. In addition to Optoelectronics research, it aims to explore topics under Fiber and Optical amplifier. In Optical Fiber Communication Conference, Fronthaul, Optical fiber and Modulation are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Electronic engineering research.

It holds forums on Signal processing that merges themes from other disciplines such as Digital signal processing, Bit error rate, Bandwidth (signal processing), Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing and Quadrature amplitude modulation. The studies tackled, which mainly focus on Transmission (telecommunications), apply to Signal as well. The work on Optics presented in it focuses on Polarization (waves) in particular.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Nonlinear Interference Mitigation via Deep Neural Networks (78 citations)
  • Dynamic slicing approach for multi-tenant 5G transport networks [invited] (45 citations)
  • 0.4 THz Photonic-Wireless Link With 106 Gb/s Single Channel Bitrate (44 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 2018 edition, 8.12% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 23.71% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 12.52% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 26.22% of all publications and 37.56% 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).
