Abstract:

The main objective of the meeting was to report on the current state of the art in optical computing and to look into possible future directions that are likely to emerge from an interaction between new devices, novel architectures, and nontraditional applications for optical computing. The meeting consisted of invited papers and both oral and poster contributed papers in all areas of research in materials, devices, architectures and algorithms relevant to optical computing. Topics of interest included optical interconnections for computing optical computing systems, architectures and algorithms, digital or analog, hybrid opticalelectronic processor, optical neural processors, including optical associative memories, and optical artificial intelligence.
