>> Scope;
This topical meeting will provide an international forum for the most recent and advanced issues concerning optical amplifiers, including principles of operation, practical realization, design, photonic integration, and the optical systems and networks they enable. All aspects of optical amplifier implementation from research to manufacturing will be discussed.

>> Topics to be Considered;
1. Fiber and Active Waveguides
planar waveguide amplifiers and sources, rare-earth doped fibers, Raman amplifiers, new fiber amplifiers and sources, materials and structures, design and fabrication, Amplifier modeling and characterization, noise and linearity, active fiber-based integration.

2. Semiconductor Devices and Functional Circuits
wavelength converters, optical switches and processing elements, semiconductor photonic integrated circuits, planar elements and subsystems, sensors, semiconductor amplifiers, semiconductor pump lasers.

3. Networks and Systems
multi-wavelength network applications; switched optical network applications, video and analog transport, subscriber-access networks, upgrade of existing systems, terrestrial and undersea transmission, soliton transmission, system-related analysis; nonlinear effects, field demonstrations/deployment experience.
