Why Attend OFC/NFOEC 2013?

  • Technical conference: 17 – 21 March
  • Exposition: 19 – 21 March

I began writing about the upcoming OFC/NFOEC (Optical Fiber Communication Conference/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference) with thoughts of introducing some of the workshops and panels that will be happening, such as Core Networks, Access Networks, FTTx Technologies, Fibers and Optical Propagation Effects, and more, but in my wandering, came across an interesting blog penned by Casimer DeCusatis on why he attended last year’s OFC and why he will be returning this year. Here are his five reasons (in increasing order of importance):

  • Acceptance of a paper
  • Keeping up-to-date with developments in this field
  • Recharging your batteries with new thoughts, innovative ideas, and inspiration from leaders in this field
  • A great return on an investment that is absorbed by the normal costs of working in this field
  • Networking
