Vice Chair Dry Technology, Cloud and Network Operations
Over the past decade, Dry Plant technology – especially Submarine Line Terminal Equipment (SLTE) – has experienced a fast-paced evolution in what used to be a rather conservative, riskaverse industry. The lines between undersea and terrestrial transmission technologies have blurred; the SLTE are more compact, are getting modularized, even disaggregated. The dry plant no longer strictly resides in purposely built Cable Landing Stations (CLS) and started migrating to PoP and even Datacenters. The use of Software has become ubiquitous, not only in managing networks but also in turning-up and operating subsea networks. In this Topic Area, authors are encouraged to explore advances and trends in dry-plant technologies from both a hardware perspective and software and control point-of-view, network management, network operations, etc.
Subjects that can be addressed include, but are not limited to
Guideline for Submission
The SubOptic Papers Committee is pleased to request industry experts to submit Abstracts for papers to be presented as either oral or poster presentations at SubOptic 2023
Deadline for Abstract Submission
The deadline for submission of Abstracts is 2 September 2022
Format of Abstracts
Abstracts must be written in English, and consist of plain text only, maximum 300 words. Essentially the abstract should be a brief summary (or an 'abstract') of the proposed paper or poster.
Each Abstract should be original in nature and cover some aspect of the program topics detailed in this Call for Papers. Abstracts will be evaluated and scored for quality, credibility, originality and general interest.
Overt product advertising or company publicity within an Abstract (or the subsequent paper) is not permissible and will be cause for rejection of the submission.
Any type of company of the submarine industry (operators, vendors, manufacturers, service providers, etc.) is invited to submit.
Abstract Submission Method
To submit an Abstract for consideration, the lead author of the paper should:
The SubOptic 2023 Papers Committee reserves the right to change the designated topic area for any Abstract, as may be appropriate.
Notification of Acceptance
Under the guidance of the SubOptic 2023 Papers Committee, multi-company panels of industry experts will review all abstracts in an objective and professional manner, and select the papers desired for presentation at the conference. The Lead Author will be notified by email in early November 2021 of the committee's decision.
Publication in the Proceedings of SubOptic 2023
If an Abstract is accepted for oral or poster presentation, the author will be required to submit a paper (nominally three to five pages, but any length within reason will be accepted), written in English, to the SubOptic 2023 Papers Committee by 31 January 2023
Accepted papers will be published in the SubOptic 2023 Conference proceedings, contingent upon the transfer of copyright to the SubOptic 2023 Executive Committee.
