Welcome to FOAN 2017 - 7th International Work Shop on Fiber Optics in Access Networks.

After the successful workshops in Moscow (2010), Budapest (2011), St. Petersburg (2012), Almaty(2013), Brno (2015) and Lisbon (2016) this year we are in Munich.

The primary goal of FOAN 2017 is to bring and present the latest research in the field of Fiber Optics Technologies for Access network. The idea behind the workshop is to create opportunity to learn new things by gathering scientists and experts from academies, industry and operators in this field that will during the workshop share their knowledge, experience, and ideas.

As previously years we are collocated with International Congress on Ultra modern Telecommunication and Control Systems (ICUMT). ICUMT is an annual international congress providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers targeted on newly emerging algorithms, systems, standards, services, and applications, bringing together leading international players in telecommunications, control systems, automation and robotics. The event is positioned as a major international annual congress for the presentation of original and fundamental research and engineering results.

FOAN is an annual international workshop providing an open forum for academies, industry and operators in the field of Fiber Optics Technologies for Access network.

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases .
