Abstract

Call for Papers

Optical Interconnection Networks

Keren Bergman (editor), Columbia University
Gary Hughes (guest organizer), National Security Agency
Submission deadline: August 1, 2004


In current high-performance computing and communications systems an emerging need for ultra-high-capacity, low-latency interconnection networks has led investigators to consider insertion of optical-domain switching fabrics. The use of optical technology for the physical switching layer within data communication systems is clearly advantageous in providing maximum bandwidth per cable particularly through the exploitation of DWDM. Furthermore, the transparency offered in the optical domain allows potentially wide flexibility in the data encoding and protocols. However, many key challenges remain to the successful implementation of optical packet routing, as optical signals cannot be processed efficiently or buffered for an arbitrary time. Clearly, innovative architectures, switching fabrics, and packet processing subsystems that employ optical technologies in synergetic fashions with powerful electronic techniques would be poised to harvest the immense transmission bandwidth of optics creating the ultimate "unlimited-capacity" interconnection network.
The Editors of the Journal of Optical Networking (JON) are soliciting papers on Optical Interconnection Networks. The aim in this feature issue is to publish original research on topics including-but not limited to-the following:
  • optical packet interconnection network architectures
  • optical internet switches and routers
  • packet synchronization modules
  • high-capacity interconnection network interfaces
  • WDM optical packet buffering contention resolution and arbitration
  • performance analysis

Manuscript Submission

To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON, indicating "Optical Interconnection Networks" in the "Comments" field of the online submission form. For all other questions relating to this feature issue, please send an e-mail to jon@osa.org, subject line "Optical Interconnection Networks."
