You’ll know (as will they) that your work has been rigorously peer-reviewed by a committee of experts to ensure high-quality presentations on emerging topics. After your presentation, you’ll have invaluable opportunities to engage with other presenters and attendees in one-on-one, in-depth interactions.
Accepted papers are indexed in Ei Compendex and Scopus and published in OSA Publishing’s Digital Library, the world’s largest peer-reviewed collection of optics and photonics information. Full-text search and key metadata tags for conference papers are available to Google to facilitate results in its search engine and Google Scholar.
