About ECOC

The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) is Europe’s leading conference on optical communications, and one of the largest and most prestigious events in the field worldwide. The conference brings together experts and leaders from academia, research and industry across the globe to share their latest breakthroughs and visions for the future.

ECOC is the ideal place for you to expand your knowledge, discuss new ideas, and network with others. It encompasses everything from the materials and devices that make optical communication possible, to the systems and networks that use them.

The ECOC Exhibition has been running for nearly 30 years and has grown to become the largest optical communications exhibition in Europe and the key meeting place for decision makers from across the fibre optic communications technology industry.

50 years of ECOC! In 2024 we are looking forward to celebrating this special anniversary with you in 2024 and have planned some great social events:
