The 2023 Technical Conference

The 2023 Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science Conference will be held in an in-person/asynchronous format. After selecting a Presentation Type within the submission form, a pop-up box for Presentation Method will appear. You will be asked to select your preferred presentation method from two options:

  • In Person
    Attend the conference in person and present at the meeting venue.
  • Asynchronous
    For presenters unable to attend in person, this option offers a pre-recorded video presentation that will be published online for on-demand viewing only. Asynchronous presentations do not include the opportunity for live presentation and/or participation in Q&A. 

If you select in person, it is expected that you will attend the meeting in person to present. Otherwise, your presentation may be withdrawn.

By offering a flexible meeting format, if your paper is accepted for presentation, we guarantee that you will be able to present it before its intended audience.

Modes of Presentation

Oral Sessions

The presentation times for oral sessions are as follows: contributed presentations are 15 minutes each, invited talks are 30 minutes, and keynote talks are 45 minutes. Each presentation will have a break for questions during the last 2-3 minutes of each presentation.

Poster Sessions

We offer an in-person poster option and a virtual gallery for ePosters. All ePosters will be displayed in gallery view with search features by keyword, topic category, presentation times, and a flag displaying any ePoster presenters available for real-time communication. Each ePoster will have a dedicated page that will include a 3-minute poster preview and/or poster PDF, as well as an embedded chat window displaying the chat dialog.

Postdeadline Session

Postdeadline papers are presented as oral presentations during a special session toward the end of the conference. The presentation time will be determined during sessioning, but is generally around 15 minutes each, including questions. The purpose of postdeadline papers is to give participants the opportunity to hear new and significant material in rapidly advancing areas. Only those papers judged to be truly excellent and compelling in their timeliness are accepted for postdeadline presentation. If you believe your work meets these requirements, you are encouraged to submit a postdeadline paper.
