  • Science & Industry Showcase:  18 – 19 September 2018




Four Steps to Prepare Your Submission

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

  2. ​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

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

  4. Submit your abstract and summary description before 22 May 2018.
