ECOC 2017 – 43rd European Conference on Optical Communication
The largest conference on optical communication in Europe and one of the largest and most prestigious events in this field worldwide.
The Nordic countries are happy to welcome ECOC back to Scandinavia, a high-tech innovation hub that successfully merges information and optical technologies within a creative business and scientific context. Gothenburg, Sweden, is in the heart of Scandinavia, with a characteristic maritime scenery at the waterfront and the special Nordic light which has inspired artists for centuries.
The Nordic countries consistently rank as one of the most competitive, productive and globalized regions in the world. The region is a global leader of innovation with a highly skilled and multinational labour force, sophisticated consumers,
smooth business procedures, openness to international ownership and stable economies.
Industry and academia can benefit from the region’s advantages in many ways. One way is to tap into the skills and technologies in industry clusters and research institutions. Of special note are the information and communication technology as well as cleantech, ICT, life sciences, automotive and materials science industries. These are all areas where Nordic companies excel and compete at the highest international level.

In parallel to the conference, there will be a major exhibition presenting a wide range of products and services related to optical communications. The ECOC Exhibition is the largest European optical communications event and the meeting place for everyone in the fibre optic communication technology industry.
Special ECOC Symposium in Copenhagen, Denmark, 14-15 September 2017
The Symposium will address major EU-overseas research strategies, large national research investments in research centres and institutes, as well as advanced spatial multiplexing technologies for extremely high capacity data transmission.
