Mar 2009
The Optical Society (OSA), IEEE Photonics Society (formerly IEEE LEOS) and IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc) have announced that they are partnering to combine two existing publications into one, called the Journal of Optical Communications and Networking (JOCN). The combined journal will cover theoretical and practical advances in the architecture and systems aspects of state-of-the-art optical communications networks. The new publication is slated to launch in June 2009 and will be promoted at this year’s Optical Fiber Communication/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) in San Diego. Keren Bergman of Columbia University and Vincent W.S. Chan of MIT will serve as co-editors-in-chief. JOCN will combine OSA’s monthly Journal of Optical Networking and the Optical Communications and Networking series published three times per year as a supplement to the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications. OSA and IEEE will share journal operations, with OSA managing peer review and IEEE overseeing production. JOCN will be published online monthly and will be available in a quarterly printed compilation. OSA’s Optics InfoBase, IEEE’s Xplore and ComSoc’s digital library will carry the final published version of all JOCN papers.


GLOSSARY
optical communications
The transmission and reception of information by optical devices and sensors.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
