Skip Navigation LinksECOC 2016 CLEO Focus Meeting




Following on from successful conferences held since 2006, the European Physical Society and CLEO Europe-EQEC in collaboration with the Chairs of ECOC 2016 are delighted to announce the organisation of a special CLEO Focus Meeting on Fundamental Photonics for Future Telecommunications, to be held as part of ECOC 2016.
New developments and trends on emerging and highly forward-looking research in photonics will be at the heart of this special CLEO Focus Meeting, complementary to the regular ECOC sessions. The meeting will showcase state-of-the-art results which bridge the gap between basic science and applications.
The scope includes, but is not limited to, digital and optical signal processing, nanophotonics, plasmonics, nonlinear optics, novel materials including metamaterials, novel devices, spatio-temporal complex nonlinear dynamics, optical angular momentum research, quantum optics, emerging ultrafast technologies, new concepts in optical generation including supercontinuum sources, optical rogue waves and frequency combs, multimode systems, beam manipulation and wave-guiding, and other optical communication and processing related topics.

 Papers must be submitted using the EDAS Online Submission Tool.


Paper Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors should submit up to three-page summary


Paper submission procedure using EDAS
  • Logging in to EDAS
    Using EDAS requires logging in first. If you already have an account, enter your email address (or your numeric EDAS ID#) and password in the fields on the form on the EDAS home page.
    If you do not know whether you have an account on this EDAS system, try entering your email address or name. EDAS will check for your account and let you know whether it knows about you.
    If you have an account but have forgotten your password, you can reset your Password

Mandatory fields are listed in red; optional fields are listed in black. The password for accessing the EDAS system will be sent to you via email. Once you receive your password, you should return to EDAS and log in.


  • Registering your Paper
    After logging in to EDAS, you should see the web form for registering your paper submission. Fill in the form:
    Enter the name of the first author, then later on you will have to add all the co-authors.
    Enter each author using either their EDAS identifier or their last name.
    Each author must be registered in EDAS; if an author is not yet registered in EDAS, you will be prompted for the information to register them.
    You must also select one of the authors to be the correspondence author.
    Enter the title and abstract of the paper.
    Select the topic from the list of paper topics that best classify your paper. 
    Once you have filled in all information for your paper, click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of that page. This will show you a page that acknowledges your paper's registration.


  • Uploading your Paper
    After registering your paper submission, you must upload your actual paper. 
    To upload your paper right after registering your submission, simply  follow EDAS instructions on the acknowledgement page.
    After you return to your EDAS homepage, you will see your uploaded paper. If you click on the paper number, you will see the paper details. If you click on the paper under "Manuscript", you will see the PostScript or PDF version that you uploaded.  

  • Revising your Paper or Account
    After you have submitted your paper, you can revise your submission at any time before the paper submission deadline. The system is then closed for Review. 
    You can also revise your own EDAS account information from your EDAS Homepage. To do so, click on the link at the top to edit your profile.
