• Technical Conference:  15 – 19 September 2019
  • Science & Industry Showcase:  17 – 18 September 2019


Postdeadline Submission Deadline: 19 August, 12:00 EDT
The regular submission period has closed, but you can submit your paper to be considered for a postdeadline presentation. 

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.

Steps to Prepare Your Submission

  1. Determine in which submission category your research fits. The organization of Technical Conference content rests firmly (and recognizably) on the foundation of OSA Technical Divisions.

  2. Determine which presentation mode is best for you and your work.  Papers can be submitted to be considered for oral, poster, rapid fire oral/poster and eposter.  

  3. ​​Understand the paper submission requirements and guidelines.

  4. Submit your abstract and summary description before deadline listed above.
