50 years of ECOC – we are looking for documents from the past 50 years

The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) is the continent’s largest event in this field and one of the most prestigious events on optical communications worldwide.

In 2024, the 50th ECOC will take place in Frankfurt. On this occasion, we would like to present the development of optical communication technology since 1974 in a small poster show or exhibition. We are looking for photos and documents from the beginnings of ECOC until today. In addition, we plan to set up a searchable archive of all conference papers. Conference proceedings of some years are still missing.

Please send information to ECOC50@vde.com if you have such documents.
