The 16th International Conference on Optical Networking Design and Modeling - ONDM 2012 - will be held at University of Essex, Colchester, UK, on April 17-20, 2012.

As it is established practice at ONDM, the 16th installment will focus on cutting-edge, state-of-the-art research in optical networking and newly emerging areas.

ONDM will also encourage submissions of the research papers that relate the topics of optical networking to the other areas and disciplines, such as integration of optical and wireless networks or the role of optical network for the future Internet design. Controversial ideas and approaches and their open discussion are strongly encouraged.

Moreover, ONDM in UK will contribute to the community strengthening by inciting interactivity among the senior and junior participants as well as among the industrial and academic participants.
