TechRecur: ECOC Conference heading to high-tech innovation hub Gothenburg, Sweden
19 April, 2017 - 08:17
The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) – the largest conference of its kind in Europe – is heading to Scandinavia for its 43rd edition this year, taking place September 17th-21st in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Co-located with the ECOC Exhibition, the annual ECOC Conference offers unique insights into the top research advances and scientific discoveries in the field of optical communications, with exciting coverage of cutting-edge basic and applied research. Divided into eight areas, the ECOC technical program covers the full width of component, system and network technologies relating to fibre optic communications.
The 43rd edition is being held in Gothenburg, a pocket-sized metropolis located on the west coast of Sweden, a leading destination for sustainable meetings in the Nordic region and what locals refer to as ‘little London’. Scandinavia – a well-known hub of innovation – consistently showcases some of the highest broadband speeds worldwide.
Along with the conference, a special two-day pre-ECOC symposium will be hosted at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen on September 14th, addressing major ECOC-related research efforts worldwide. This will include EU and overseas research strategies, and the symposium will also offer transport for attendees straight to Gothenburg after it ends.
