ONDM 2019 (23rd Conference on Optical Network Design and Modeling 2019)

May 13-16, Athens, Greece

ONDM 2019 was addressed cutting-edge research in established areas of optical networking as well as their adoption in support of a wide variety of new services and applications. This involves the most recent trends in networking, including 5G and beyond, Internet of things, big data and network data analytics, cloud/edge computing, content delivery, autonomic networking, Artificial Intelligence assisted networks, visible light networks, quantum secured networks, etc. that drive the need for increased capacity, efficiency, flexibility and adaptability in the functions that the network can perform. These can be achieved developing new disaggregated optical network architectures, exploiting and integrating novel multidimensional photonic technology solutions as well as adopting open hardware and software platforms, such as software defined networking (SDN), and network function virtualization (NFV) to allow support of new business models and opportunities.
This year ONDM Conference Summer School was partly funded by EU commission and Erasmus Mundus Joint Master degrees programme: ONDM Summer School joint with the SMARTNET programme. The Summer School has offered a set of presentations, addressing MSc and PhD students in the areas of Optical and 5G Networking.
Emmanouil (Manos) Varvarigos from National Technical University of Athens, Greece, was involved in the general tutorials of the conference and gave a talk on “Self-Monitored, Self-adjusted Optical Network”:

Dr. Markos Anastasopoulos from University of Bristol, UK has presented a tutorial of “Network Modeling”:

Prof. Sergei Turitsyn from Aston University, UK has presented a tutorial of “Nonlinear communication technologies”:
