Special Issue on: MICROWAVE PHOTONICS (Submission Deadline: 1 February 2020)This special issue covers all topics in the field of microwave photonics, a special issue for the 2019 IEEE International Topical Conference on Microwave Photonics (MWP’2019). Microwave photonics is concerned with the use of photonic devices, systems and techniques for applications in microwave, millimeter, and THz wave engineering, and also encompasses the development of high-speed photonic components for microwave system applications. The field is continuing to experience significant growth, fueled by the recent interest and development in integrated microwave photonics and microwave/millimeter-wave photonics for 5G applications and beyond. 

Special Issue on: ECOC 2019 (Submission Deadline: 15 November 2019)
JLT offers the opportunity to expand each ECOC 2019 paper accepted for either oral or poster presentation into a journal paper that will appear in print as part of this special issue in May/June 2020. All papers submitted to the special issue must reference the ECOC paper, as well as contain enough original content when compared with the conference publication. The additional material may come in various forms: new technical results, auxiliary results not reported in the conference paper, significantly expanded explanations or discussions, a significantly expanded introduction that places the work in a much more comprehensive context, etc. - The guiding principle should be that JLT's readership should appreciate having the journal version available in addition to the conference pape
