Deadline Extended : 30 September 2017

The FTTH Council MENA invites you to submit a paper for the 9th annual FTTH Council MENA Conference & Exhibition, which will be held on 22 & 23 November 2017 in Tunis.

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 15 September 2017!

Following the successful previous conferences, the FTTH Council MENA will increase this success with a high-quality conference programme under the theme “FTTH, Empowering the Digital Vision” which will highlight the benefits of the FTTH deployment for operators, governments and consumers.

This call for papers is open for all kind of submissions. Papers can be submitted by single persons, operators, engineering consultants, authorities, content developers, manufacturers, equipment vendors and all further stakeholders of the FTTH world. The review will be done by a neutral committee of analysts. It will be a blind review, meaning that the reviewer only sees the title and the abstract but not the author(s). Any statements in the abstract which could indicate the author who/company which submitted the abstract will be removed for the review.

The FTTH Council MENA prefers neutral presentations and case study/real life experience presentations. Manufacturers and vendors can therefore increase the value of their abstract if the presentation is done through a customer.

The FTTH Council MENA will do the final selection of the papers. There is no obligation from FTTH Council MENA to inform submitters about the reasons of accepting or rejecting a paper.


Abstract Guidelines:
Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words/3000 characters without pictures and must be commercial free. The abstract should describe the primary conclusion or results of the paper including details of the work indicating the significant findings. Papers must contain significant new material not presented or published previously. Papers may range from introductory to advanced.
