ECOC is the largest conference on optical communication in Europe, and one of the most respected and long-standing events of its kind in the world. ECOC 2020, from 20 to 24 September 2020, will be the 46th edition, which indicates the stability and the attractiveness of this conference as one of the world’s major events in the field, providing a prime forum for new developments and results in optical communication techniques and networks.
ECOC travels around Europe from year to year and now returns to the Benelux region. Alternating between the Netherlands and Belgium, ECOC 2020 will be back to Brussels where it was for the first time in 1995, marking the start of the link between a commercial exhibition and the conference and then back in 2008. In response to the increasing interest in the field of optical communications both in research and industry, the event has grown since then, both in size and importance and has successfully withstood the internet-bubble and the crisis in the telecommunication industry. Since a few years ECOC is again growing in size, importance and impact and ECOC 2020 will continue on this élan with even more exhibitors and papers from all over the world. ECOC 2020 is organised by IMEC, the Inter-university Microelectronics Center, a world-leading independent research center in nanoelectronics and digital technology.
Registration will open February 1st 2020
