Conference Registration is free and available to students in optics and or related fields. Conference presentations will be broadly grouped into Optical Engineering, Optical Physics, Photonics, and Image Science presentation tracks. The cost of the hotel (Friday night through Sunday night) will be covered for all out-of-town conference attendees. A limited number of Travel grants on top of this will also be available to students. These grants will be awarded based on time of submission and quality of abstract. The College of Optical Sciences has partnered with us to offer special travel grants for undergraduate students to attend, so we encourage your submissions as well!

For guidelines on how to submit a good abstract, please see OSA’s tips for manuscript preparation, or read the submission criteria for Optics Express.
