About the Workshop

The aim of this Workshop is to update the knowledge of the participants towards Optical Network and Photonics principles. This workshop will also introduce the participants to the current practices in the field and will help in developing the research aptitude in this area. Broadly, we will cover the Optical Networks, Optical Time Division Multiplexing (OTDM), Protection and Restoration in Optical Networks, Elastic Optical Networks, Machine Learning for Optical Networks, Photonic Crystal Fibers (PCF) and Plasmonic behaviour of PCF. Lectures and Demonstration Sessions would help to understand it in a better way. The target audience will be UG/PG/Research students, Faculty of Engineering Colleges, and Personnel from Industries.
