About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the The International Workshop on Optical SuperComputing, OSC 2008, held in Vienna, Austria, August 2008 in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Unconventional Computation UC 2008.

OCS is a new annual forum for research presentations on all facets of optical computing for solving hard computation tasks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Design of optical computing devices, electrooptics devices for interacting with optical computing devices, practical implementations, analysis of existing devices and case studies, optical and laser switching technologies, applications and algorithms for optical devices, alpha practical, x-rays and nano-technologies for optical computing.
