Call for Papers
November 18 - November 20, 2009
University Residential Center
Bertinoro (Forlì-Cesena), Italy.
Standard, electrical-based, computers rapidly approach fundamental limitation.
Alternative principles should be explored in order to keep computing developments at
the current pace or even faster. Optical computing has major potential in providing a solution
through its use of photons to perform computations instead of electrons.
This workshop will be an opportunity to bring people together from optics and computer science who are interested in establishing important principles
and in developing optical computers. This will also be an opportunity to meet with pioneering figures and to
discuss the future of optical supercomputing. Last year's International Workshop on Optical SuperComputing, OSC 2008 in Vienna, was a remarkable success as we anticipate this year to be.
