As a presenter, you’ll participate in a strong technical program that includes other distinguished experts. Your audience will be comprised of colleagues, industry leaders and potential collaborators.

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.

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.

Since the meeting is now in a virtual format, upon acceptance you will have the option to present live or via a prerecorded video. A document to assist speakers in preparing a virtual presentation and speaker FAQs will be posted later this month under “Author Resources”.

Speakers presenting a contributed oral talk or poster will pay a US$ 100 presentation fee. There will be no cost for attendees to participate.

Please note the Bragg Gratings, Photosensitivity and Poling in Waveguides and Materials (BGPP) meeting is not accepting contributed submissions.

Requirements

35-word Abstract: Your abstract should be a brief summary of your paper topic. If your paper is accepted, your 35-word abstract will be included in the Conference Program. Note that the same abstract should be included in the 2-page summary as highlighted in the style guide.

2-page Summary: All contributed authors are required to submit a final summary of their work for publication in the Technical Digest, via OSA Publishing's Digital Library. Style guides are provided in a variety of different formats to support authors’ needs. All PDF submissions MUST contain the following items in order to be published:

  1. Complete title
  2. Complete listing of all authors and their affiliations
  3. Self-contained abstract, limited to 35-words (indexers such as Google Scholar will not index papers that do not contain abstracts)
  4. Appropriate copyright statement following the abstract. By default, the copyright statement will appear as 2020 The Author(s). If needed, the default statement can be suppressed by use of the {abstract*} environment.
  5. Permission and attribution for any trademarked or copyright images. Note that images of people or images owned or trademarked by other entities (including, for example, well-known logos or cartoon characters) will also require official written permission.

Style Guide

Style guides are provided in a variety of different formats to support authors’ needs. Style guides are the same for all OSA managed meetings. Be sure to confirm page count and paper size requirements for the meeting to which you are submitting.

Please make sure that your paper does not contain non-English font packages (for example, Japanese, Korean or Chinese fonts, etc.) in the body of your paper summary, as well as in all figures and tables. Characters in these fonts cannot be seen by reviewers. In the past, we have had particular trouble with MS-PGothic, MS-Gothic and MS-Mincho.
