OCS, the International Workshop on Optical SuperComputing, is a new annual forum for research presentations on all facets of optical computing for solving hard computation tasks. Optical computing devices have the potential for being the very next computing infrastructure. Given the frequency limitations and cross-talk phenomena, as well as soft-errors of electronic devices on one hand, and the natural parallelism of optical computing devices, as well as the advance in fiber optics and optical switches on the other hand make optical computing commercial-able.
Research contributions to the theory, design, specification, analysis, implementation, or application of optical supercomputers are solicited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Design of optical computing devices
-Electro-optics devices for interacting with optical computing devices
-Practical implementations
-Analysis of existing devices and case studies
-Optical and laser switching technologies
-Applications and algorithms for optical devices
-Alpha practical, X-Rays and nano-technologies for optical computing
