Despite the slowdown of Moore's Law, applications from machine learning and edge computing to scientific computing and mobile computing continuously demand more performance under tighter cost, energy, and size constraints. Silicon-based photonic technologies advanced rapidly in the last two decades and have become promising solutions to complement electronic technologies. OPTICS (optical/photonic interconnects for computing systems) workshop aims at discussing the latest advances in optics/photonics for computing systems, covering topics from fabrications, photonic devices, photonic circuits, architectures, system integrations, and design automation and optimization. The workshop targets researchers and engineers working on optics/photonics, electronics, architectures, systems, applications and design automations. Topics to be discussed include but are not limited to:

# PEDA (Photonic-Electronic Design Automation): layout, placement and routing, floorplan, crosstalk, thermal, process variation, etc.
# Photonic-electronic system integration and application: data center, HPC, automobile, aviation, etc.
# Photonics-based architecture: optical neural network, rack-scale optical network, inter/intra-chip optical network, optical switching, etc.
# Photonic/optic circuits: OE conversion, optical interconnect, optical computing circuit, etc.
# Photonic device and fabrication: laser, photodetector, modulator, switch, filter, etc.

You are invited to participate and submit your contributions to OPTICS. Abstracts upto one A4 page should be emailed to the program chair. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters. Accepted abstracts won't be published in DATE proceedings nor on IEEE Xplore. The submission and notification deadlines are as follows.

# Submission deadline: 25th January 2020
# Acceptance notification: 30th January 2020
