Submit Papers


 

Postdeadline Paper Submission Deadline: 7 March 2017 12:00 EDT (16:00 GMT)

Postdeadline papers give OFC participants the opportunity to hear about new and significant work in rapidly advancing areas. They aim at triggering critical examination of novel ideas and follow-on work within the community at the earliest possible opportunity. Only those papers judged to be truly excellent and compelling in their timeliness will be accepted for presentation in a limited number of post-deadline sessions.
 
Submissions should, for example:
  • establish a new benchmark for device, system or network performance
  • propose a new architectural paradigm or system construct, including analysis of its benefit and technical validity
  • present groundbreaking technologies, components or subsystems
  • report on high impact experiments and field trials
It is important that submissions clearly:
  • motivate timeliness, excellence and advance over state of the art
  • justify all claims made in the paper (e.g. on capacity, spectral efficiency, .)
  • state measurement conditions (e.g. number of channels, time periods, .) and performance benchmarks
  • are free of what could be perceived as technical flaw, inaccurate statement or overclaim
Authors of postdeadline papers will not be notified of acceptance in advance of the conference; they have to attend the conference to present their work if selected.

Questions regarding the paper submission and review process can be directed to the Technical Papers Staff at cstech@osa.org.
