About PSC

International Conference on Photonics in Switching and Computing 2019 (PSC 2019)

The Photonic in Switching and Computing (PSC) conference welcomes you to Fukuoka, Japan in July 2019. PSC is a unique conference which addresses all aspects of optical networks including: i) optical systems and subsystems, ii) optical components and devices, and iii) network control and management for telecom, datacom, high performance computing (HPC), and big data. The main focus is on optical switching technologies for networking and computing systems with emphasis on vertical integration from technologies to systems and architectures. Some of latest research in PSC areas will be presented in a stimulating environment with in-depth and open discussions of the latest trends in this area.

PSC is the successor of the well-known Photonics in Switching (PS) conference which has been running annually since 2001 alternating location between North America, Europe and Asia. PSC 2019 is the second conference edition, explicitly integrating emerging computing topics. PSC 2019 will be jointly held with OECC. We strongly believe that this joint conference will provide attendees with a great opportunity to explore the wide spectrum of research topics spanning from device to networking technology and their integration. We encourage all of you to submit your up-to-date research results to PSC 2019.

See you in Fukuoka.
