ICTON 2010 : 12th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks
Call For Papers
The National Institute of Telecommunications, Department of Transmission and Optical Technologies in Warsaw, together with The Institute for Communications Engineering / Lehrstuhl für Nachrichtentechnik (LNT), Technische Universität München, and the IEEE Photonics Society Poland Chapter are pleased to announce the 12th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks ICTON 2010 which will be kindly hosted the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities palace in Munich, Germany, June 27 - July 1, 2010.
Technical co-sponsorship foreseen by:
IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE Photonics Society Poland Chapter, VDE/ITG.
Beautifully located in the heart of Europe and only an hour from the alps, Munich is connected to 250 destinations world-wide (www.munich-airport.de). The Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, founded in 1759, is situated in Munich's historic city center.
