ONDM Jubilee Panel

This year we are celebrating the 25th edition of ONDM. To mark the anniversary, the conference will open with a Jubilee Panel featuring participants that chaired past ONDM editions and played key roles in developing and growing the conference.

The panel will serve as a platform to briefly look back at the past editions of ONDM and focus on what the future holds for optical communications.

We have prepared a short video to celebrate this ocasion.
