Low latency optical fiber communications are essential for emerging time-sensitive applications including but not restricted to 5G x-haul mobile networking, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and modern data centers. This workshop consists of a series of short talks by leading experts from industry and academia, followed by a panel discussion, to address the following two important questions: (1) What are the requirements and technical challenges on low latency for these different time-sensitive applications? (2) What are the enabling technologies, including time-sensitive network architectures and radical solutions such as hollow-core fiber cables?
