Pick a theme! Consider the product applications of your research as it relates to the four conference themes. Refer to these pages for recommendations to help you choose a theme for your submission:
Nanophotonics and Plasmonics
Optics in Computing
Virtual Reality and Augmented Vision
Option: General research outside of themes or Hot Topic

Get the Most From Membership
FiO, the OSA Annual Meeting, is intended to be inclusive and diverse — which is why all OSA Members will be given the ability to present a contributed paper.
Present in front of a supportive, international audience of peers, colleages and other OSA Members. In 2016, 2,300 attendees came from more than 60 countries.
As a presenter, you're also an attendee. You'll have numerous opportunities, formal and informal, to meet, network and engage with other presenters and attendees — leaders from academia, industry and goverment.
