OSC, the International Workshop on Optical SuperComputing, is a new annual forum for research presentations on all facets of optical computing for solving hard computation tasks. Optical computing devices have the potential to be the next computing infrastructure. Despite the frequency limitations and cross-talk phenomena, as well as soft-errors of electronic devices the natural parallelism of optical computing devices, along with the advance in ?ber optics and - tical switches make optical computing commercial-able. The workshop focuses on in research on the theory, design, speci?cation, analysis, implementation, or application of optical supercomputers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: designs or demonstrations of optical computing devices and systems; algorithmics and complexity issues of optical computing; computation rep- sentation by photons and holograms; neural and brain inspired architectures; electro-optic devices for interacting with optical computing devices; practical implementations; analysis of existing devices and case studies; optical photonics and laser switching technologies; optical and photonic memories; optical signal processing subsystems; optical networks for high-performance computing; op- cal interconnections; quantum optical systems; applications and algorithms for optical devices; alpha particles, X-rays and nano-technologies for optical c- puting. The second OSC workshop was held during November 18-20, 2009, in Bertinoro International Center for Informatics, Bici, Italy. This volume contains 19 contributions selected by the Program Committee. All submitted papers werereadandevaluated bythe ProgramCommittee m- bers. We aregratefulto the EasyChairsystemin assistingthe reviewingprocess. OSC 2009 was organized in cooperation with SPIE and OSA.
