Submit a Postdeadline Paper

Postdeadline Paper Submission Deadline: 12 September 12:00EDT (16:00 GMT)

The Benefits of Submitting a Paper to an OSA Meeting

As a presenter, you will participate in a strong technical program that includes other distinguished experts. Your audience will be comprised of colleagues, peers, industry leaders and potential collaborators.

You'll know (as will they) that your work has been rigorously peer-reviewed by a committee of experts to ensure high-quality presentations on emerging topics.

Accepted papers are indexed in Ei Compendex and Scopus and published in OSA Publishing's Digital Library, the world's largest peer-reviewed collection of opics and photonics information. Full-text search and key metadata tags for conference papers are available to Google to facilitate search results in Google Scholar and its search engine.

Please note only the Advanced Solid State Lasers Conference (ASSL) is accepting postdeadline papers. Applications Conference (LAC) will not be accepting PDPs.
Please note Postdeadline submissions are not an opportunity to submit a paper after the published deadline, but are intended to provide those with late-breaking work an opportunity to submit that work for consideration. Postdeadline submissions should describe new and significant material in rapidly advancing areas. A limited number of postdeadline submissions will be selected for presentation, and only those papers judged to be truly excellent and compelling in their timeliness will be accepted.
