- Acceptance Notification: March 15, 2014
- Camera-Ready Submission: April 4, 2014

The 2nd International Workshop on Survivable and Robust Optical Networks 2014 offers an opportunity for researchers and industrial to present their novel and innovative work concerning survivability, reliability, and robustness in optical networks.

IWSRON-2014 is intended to present recent research developments in optical network architectures and design. The workshop solicits papers on both completed work and work-in-progress. Papers that bring out new and interesting approaches at an early stage of their development are welcome.

IWSRON-2014 will be held in Hasselt, Belgium (June 2-5 2014) in conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies (ANT-2014) which draws many leading researchers in the field of networking.

All IWSRON-2014 accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (
