Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a seven-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first five digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the seven-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first five digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Welcome to Photonics West OPTO 2019 conference on Broadband Access Communication Technologies XIII conference.

First, this year, our conference topics concentrated on two of the hottest topics in the industry namely; (i) the development in 5G Wireless Access, and (ii) Optical Wireless in Data Centers.

We assembled an array of excellent sessions dealing with 5G Photonics from Advanced Devices and Components, 5G Photonics: Enabling Transports and Silicon Photonics Devices; 5G Photonics: Systems and Optical Fiber. These great efforts were done by great session organizers headed by Dr. Spiros Mikroulis, Dr. Zhang Junwen, and Prof. Roberto Llorente.

We also organized special session on Optical Wireless in Data Centers which was organized by Prof. Shlomi Arnon. Well-known invited speakers make this special session very informative and interesting.

Second, we continue our tradition with the new Best Student Paper Award selected from the pool of student papers who submit from any of the following conferences

Broadband Access Communication Technologies,

Metro and Data Center Optical Networks and Short-Haul Systems, and

Next Generation Optical Communication: Components, Subsystems, and Systems

The awards are sponsored by Corning Inc. and NTT Electronics America and carry a $500 prize.

Lastly, we are grateful to many excellent invited speakers and contributed authors for their time and contributions. We also acknowledge the valuable efforts from the technical program committee members, and the great assistance of the SPIE staffs that make this conference strong and successful.
