The technical programme committee appreciate papers which…

  • - States clearly in the introduction the application and technical problem
  • - Provides an original solution not previously published in journals or other conferences
  • - Clearly identifies the novelty of the work is in the abstract, introduction and conclusions
  • - Includes, where possible, quantitative claims and fair unbiased, comparisons to previous work
  • - Includes a reasonable list of contextualized references

  • - Acknowledges the contributions of other groups to the state-of-the-art through citations
  • - Avoids unnecessary self-citations
  • - Provides citations following the prescribed template
  • - Includes a clear figure/schematic of the investigated setup/devices or configuration
  • - Provides sufficient details to enable the work to be reproduced by others, including a clear description of structure/principle in addition to the results
  • - Directly supports the claimed novelty with the presented results and goes beyond a simple iteration of a previous publication
  • - Clearly justifies implementation choices in consideration of the application requirements
  • - Provides a comprehensive discussion of the results
  • - Includes results fundamentally reliant on optics
  • - Includes quantities with the relevant number of significant digits and units
  • - Complies fully with the official template
  • - Has clear and legible figures, even after printing in black and white (the use of a vector format is recommended)

- Papers can only be submitted as PDF with embedded fonts.
- Papers must be written in English.
- It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct paper; any errors in spelling, grammar, or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author, if accepted.
- Your 40 words abstract, which will appear in the conference program, should be an explicit summary of the paper that states the problem, the methods used as well as the major results and conclusions. It should be complementary to rather than a repeat of the title.
- After the last submission step, you will be requested to fill the IEEE online copyright form, in order to correctly finalize your submission.


Successful authors and accepted papers: general rules

- Each accepted paper must be associated to at least one author registered to the conference. Each registered author can be associated to no more than two accepted papers.
- Only the papers that are correctly associated to a registered author will be included in the Final online programme/abstract book.
- The full version of the included papers will be published as part of the Technical Digest, complete with ISBN reference number and available to all conference delegates, and will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
