Idea Center

OSA continuously strives to identify ways to better serve the optics and photonics community. Input from our members is an invaluable way to expand the depth and breadth of opportunities we provide. Please use the below links to provide your suggestions. 

  • Propose a Topical Meeting. OSA accepts meeting proposals for new meetings and emerging topics on an ongoing basis.
  • Propose an OSA Incubator Meeting. OSA’s Incubator Meetings are intended to provide unique and focused experiences to invited participants, allowing researchers, engineers and business leaders the opportunity to discuss new and burgeoning fields in a way that cannot be achieved through the usual channels of communication.
  • Propose a FiO Topic. To continue to develop our annual meeting the FiO program committee accepts topic suggestions.
  • Propose a Technical Group Activity. OSA members are encouraged to join up to five technical groups that provide updates on OSA publications, meetings and activities in your areas of interest.
