Foreword to the Special Issue on European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2015)
Every year, and this 41st edition was no exception, ECOC is the leading forum in Europe for keeping up with the top research advances and scientific discoveries in devices, subsystems, systems and networks in the field of optical communications and related photonic technologies. With a global attendance and delegates coming from all over the five continents, ECOC provides a unique opportunity for networking and interaction that nobody interested in the field should miss. ECOC 2015 took place from September 27th to October 1st 2015 in Valencia, Spain. As ECOC 2015 organizers, we believe that it is very important to keep the traditions that have contributed to its long-standing success, but at the same we tried to experiment and innovate both in the technical and social programs. For the first time, ECOC 2015 held a young researcher's meeting and included a Rump Session to debate on the future of optical communication; “Optical innovation, quo vadis?” ECOC 2015 also held two technical symposia, both of which were unique and special. 2015 was the international Year of Light and ECOC 2015 included a special commemoration symposium, “Light: Enabling the Global Internet Era,” at which distinguished keynote speakers addressed how optical technologies have been responsible for the transformation in communications, the evolution of the Internet era as we have experienced it in the last two decades, and why they will play an ever-increasing role in tomorrow's communication networks. A second symposium on one of the hottest topic in the optical community, “Optical Communications and Networks for Datacenters,” held in remembrance of our colleague Prof. H. Dorren. It was focused on discussing the requirements, challenges, and solutions for the next-generation datacenters.

Abstract

Every year, and this 41st edition was no exception, ECOC is the leading forum in Europe for keeping up with the top research advances and scientific discoveries in devices, subsystems, systems and networks in the field of optical communications and related photonic technologies. With a global attendance and delegates coming from all over the five continents, ECOC provides a unique opportunity for networking and interaction that nobody interested in the field should miss. ECOC 2015 took place from September 27th to October 1st 2015 in Valencia, Spain. As ECOC 2015 organizers, we believe that it is very important to keep the traditions that have contributed to its long-standing success, but at the same we tried to experiment and innovate both in the technical and social programs. For the first time, ECOC 2015 held a young researcher's meeting and included a Rump Session to debate on the future of optical communication; “Optical innovation, quo vadis?” ECOC 2015 also held two technical symposia, both of which were unique and special. 2015 was the international Year of Light and ECOC 2015 included a special commemoration symposium, “Light: Enabling the Global Internet Era,” at which distinguished keynote speakers addressed how optical technologies have been responsible for the transformation in communications, the evolution of the Internet era as we have experienced it in the last two decades, and why they will play an ever-increasing role in tomorrow's communication networks. A second symposium on one of the hottest topic in the optical community, “Optical Communications and Networks for Datacenters,” held in remembrance of our colleague Prof. H. Dorren. It was focused on discussing the requirements, challenges, and solutions for the next-generation datacenters.
