In the era of big data, exponentially growing use of data content requires break-through solutions in communication systems for processing, transmission, and storage of information. In this session, we address fundamental physical limitations in both information theory and hardware domain, and consider novel approaches in developing ultra-high speed optical communication, signal processing, and data storage. Special attention is given to the impact of amplitude and phase noise on the quality of signal transmission; non-linear effects arising from both transmission media and signal processing; implementation of advanced modulation formats; trade-off between spectrum and energy efficiency, and other important aspects.
