Abstract : This meeting provided a forum for the presentation of both invited and contributed original papers on the subjects of devices and architectures suitable for switching, multiplexing, or routing optical signals. This meeting fostered and enhanced interaction between two groups that share a common interest in exploring possible applications of photonics switching technology; people working on optical switching devices and components; and people working on future switching systems and networks. Papers covered the following areas: devices and phenomena for switching applications and switching systems and network architectures utilizing optical switching technologies.
