Paper submission

Poster guidelines: all posters should be formatted to A0, portrait orientation. Pins etc. to affix posters will be provided.

One-page papers should be submitted electronically in .pdf format. When preparing the manuscript, we ask you to follow the guidelines given in these templates:

Please submit the properly formatted .pdf-version of your paper to the easychair.org website.

Please indicate the preferred type of presentation (oral/poster/either) when submitting the paper by checking the appropriate box.The category oral presentation will be treated as oral preferred but poster acceptable. The category poster presentation will be treated as poster preferred but oral acceptable. The category either will be treated as authors do not have a strong preference for a particular type of presentation.

Please indicate the topics that are relevant to your paper (more than one can be chosen) by checking the appropriate boxes.

Please indicate if your paper is student led (primary author is a student).

This year OWTNM 2015 will have student paper prizes (both oral and poster submissions will be considered at par) co-sponsored by the Optical Society of America. The prize will consist of a certificate and monetary prize. The papers will be judged (for technical quality, originality  and clarity on the basis of the presentation) by members of the Local Organisation Committee and Technical Committee of the OWTNM onsite. The announcement of the prizes will be made in the closing session of the conference.
To be eligible for the competition the following conditions must be fulfilled:

  • The paper must be submitted by 6 February 2015
  • Please tick the "student led paper" box when submitting at the EasyChair site
  • The presenting author must be the student named in the submission

Submission deadline has now been extended: February 6, 2015

Notification of acceptance: February 23, 2015.

All the 1-page abstracts accepted for presentation in the workshop will appear in the  book of abstracts, that will be made available to all attendees.

All OWTNM participants will have the opportunity to submit full papers to a special issue of Optical and Quantum Electronics.
