Assist with Developing the 2020 Technical Program

CLEO welcomes all members of the optics and photonics community to suggest topics or program ideas for two programs: the Applications & Technology Topical Reviews and Special Symposia. All proposals for both programs will be evaluated by CLEO General and Program Chairs.

 

Special Symposia

A symposium should be comprised of invited and contributed papers.  These sessions should cover areas considered to be topical and of special interest to attendees in the areas Application & Technology, Science & Innovation and Fundamental Science. (See topic categories.)

Submissions should consist of timely, cutting-edge topics and/or new material in rapidly advancing areas. 
 


A&T Topical Reviews

Topical Reviews are comprised of invited and contributed papers and emphasize significant recent advances in the application of photonics technologies to address current real world problems.


Submissions should consist of timely, cutting-edge topics and/or new material in rapidly advancing areas related to applications and technology.
