If you are interested in a special issue related to a scientific meeting, the first step is to submit a proposal for the issue to the journal editors. Optica staff will work with you to include all the necessary information for a special issue proposal. To request additional information, please contact representatives from the Optica Publishing Group.

Generally, a proposal should include:

  • A description of the scope of the special issue/topics the issue will cover
    • Note: The special issue does not need to cover the entire scope of the meeting. It is possible to pull out one emerging/developing area for the special issue
  • Rationale for why the issue is a ‘hot topic’
  • Emphasize new developments in the field
  • Explain why readers would be interested
  • Exhibit at an Optica Meeting
    From large conventions to mid-size conferences, Optica Meetings provide an excellent opportunity to reach your target audience.
  • Sponsor a Meeting
    Optica Meetings and Conventions offer several opportunities to reach attendees with news about your company, products and services.
