The International Conference on Optical Communication Systems (OPTICS2016)

Lisbon, Portugal
26 July 2016 - 28 July 2016
Website: http://www.optics.icete.org/

The purpose of OPTICS 2016, the International Conference on Optical Communication Systems, is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on any of the optical communication components of an optical communication system, or the system itself. An optical communication system consists of a transmitter, which encodes a message into an optical signal, a channel, which carries the signal to its destination, and a receiver, which reproduces the message from the received optical signal.
