For the Conference on Optical Fiber Communication, OFC 2011, last week, DTU Fotonik, and specifically the High-Speed Optical Communications (HSOC) Group in collaboration with the Nanophotonic Devices (ND) Group, has had postdeadline papers accepted for the second year running.
As the Conference writes on it web page: ”Please note that only submissions that consist of late-breaking results will be considered.” So we are talking about the latest new records and only the most important and best documented papers are accepted.
Thus, OFC (and ECOC) postdeadline papers are the most prestigeous papers attainable within optic communications and the competition is fierce. Only about 30% of the submitted papers are accepted. This is a much lower success rate than most high quality journals.
The HSOC Group have a hand in two postdeadline papers (like last year) and have thereby firmly cemented their position in the elite of optic communications.
