Aim: This session circulates the latest research on high-speed communication systems, subsystems and relevant components, with an emphasis on nonlinear effects arising from both transmission media and signal processing and solutions with potentially low energy-efficiency, including theoretical analysis, experimental demonstrations and field deployments of various technologies that address the challenges in optical communications. Researchers and engineers from fields such as Optical Fiber Communications, Electronic/Optics/Communication Engineering, Electromagnetics and Materials are welcome to present related research results and exchange information in this community.

1) Advanced modulation formats and technique for high-speed transmission, such as pulse amplitude modulation (PAM), carrierless amplitude and phase modulation (CAP), quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM).
2) Digital and optical signal processing (e.g. electronic equalizers, optical phase conjugation) for linear/nonlinear effects compensation from optical channel and system components.
3) Optical interconnects for chip-to-chip, module-to-module, inter/intra rack and inter/intra data center communications.
4) Next-generation passive optical networks (PONs) (WDM-, CWDM-PON technologies), 10G/100G Ethernet-based networks, Ethernet over first mile, access network design and optimization.
5) Relevant components and integration including optical source, optical modulator, optical amplifier, MUX/De-MUX, optical switch, and optical receiver.
6) Wireless, wired, or waveguided visible light communication (VLC) systems and radio-over-fiber (RoF) systems.
7) Optical data links for single-mode fiber (SMF), multi-mode fiber (MMF), plastic optical fiber (POF) and novel fiber applications.
8) Cost, complexity and energy aspects of high-speed optical systems including techno-economic modelling for Green optical networks.
9) Reduced complexity FPGA designs for optical communications.
