Networks for IT: A new Opportunity for Optical Network Technologies
Sunday, September 16, 14:00- 18:00
|Chair:||Dimitra Simeonidou (University of Essex, firstname.lastname@example.org)|

Networks increasingly deal with managing and adapting distributed computing and associated data management resources (PCs, servers, supercomputers, clusters) and storage systems.
Due to potentially very high aggregated demands for networked IT, a paradigm shift in the optical network architecture may be needed to enable dynamic and distributed IT services at large scale.
This workshop offers a unique opportunity for optical network researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences on problems, challenges, solutions and future research and development issues concerning the deployment of optical networks for providing IT services. In addition to invited paper presentations, the workshop provides an intimate setting for discussion and debate.
Note: Attendance to this workshop is free of charge for ECOC registered attendees.
