Post Deadline Paper Submission
PHOTONICS 2010 encourages the scientific and technical community to report extraordinary results through the Post Deadline Papers. Only a limited number of Post Deadline Papers, adjudged truly excellent by the Technical Program Committee, will be accepted.

Post Deadline Papers can be submitted from September 15 to November 15, 2010. The status of the Post Deadline Paper will be notified to the corresponding author by November 30, 2010 through email.


Authors willing to submit Post Deadline Paper are requested to prepare Four-page camera-ready manuscript (not the extended abstract) strictly following the instructions 1, 2 and 3 given in the section "Instruction for Authors to Prepare Four-Page Camera-ready Paper".


Defining the file name for the Post Deadline Paper : File name of the Post Deadline Paper (in pdf) should follow "PIS code_PIS sub code (if needed)_First Author's Last name_ First Author's First name_paper number_PDL". Please strictly follow the above mentioned sequence in naming the Post Deadline Paper file.

  Examples of the correct file name : "OFT_PC_Aggarwal_Ajay_1_PDL", "GP_Plodinec_David_1_PDL" and "GP_Plodinec_David_2_PDL".

Post Deadline Paper should be directly submitted to abstract.photonics2010@gmail.com with a subject "Post Deadline Paper". In order to be considered for the selection, each paper must be accompanied by at least a valid registration to the conference made on/before the date of submission.

Full-length camera-ready paper must be of maximum four page length.


Author(s) must follow instructions 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the one-page extended abstract preparation while preparing the full-length camera-ready paper.


Author(s) should not include PIS code and the Presentation Preference in the full-length camera-ready paper.


Defining the file name for the four-page camera-ready paper : File name of the full-length paper (in pdf) should follow "PIS code_PIS sub code (if needed)_First Author's Last name_ First Author's First name_paper number_full". Please strictly follow the above mentioned sequence in naming the full-length paper file.

  Examples of the correct file name : "OFT_PC_Aggarwal_Ajay_1_full", "GP_Plodinec_David_1_full" and "GP_Plodinec_David_2_full".
For plenary/invited Speakers : Guidelines for the full-length camera-ready paper of the plenary/invited talks remain the same as mentioned above. However, the file name of the full-length paper should be defined as "PIS code_PIS sub code (if needed)_Speaker's Last name_ Speaker's First name_Plenary/Invited_full".

The font should be "Times New Roman" throughout. All text, title, authors, addresses, abstract, references, tables, figures, and photographs should fit to one page.


Topic and Preference inclusion : The Topic (Photonics Indexing Scheme (PIS) Code) should be included at the top left corner and the Presentation Preference (Oral/Poster) should be included at the top right corner, one line above the title of the abstract (within the 2.5 cm top margin). As an example, "Header" option may be used to add the PIS code and the Preference while preparing the extended abstract using MS Word. The Photonics Indexing Scheme (PIS) Codes are listed at the end of this page. Extended abstract without PIS code will not be accepted.


Title, Author(s) name and affiliation : The title should be written in 12 pt bold capital letters and centered at the top of the page. The authors' names, complete organizational affiliations, mailing addresses, and E-mail addresses should be in 11 pt font size, one line (11pt) below the title.


Brief Abstract : The abstract of about 50 words should be placed one line (11pt) below the last E-mail address and should be set in 10 pt font. The text of the abstract should follow "Abstract:" (in bold) in the same line.


Main Text : The main text should start two lines below the abstract and be written in a two-column format with 8 mm spacing between columns using 10 pt fonts. Indent each paragraph by 3.5mm. Each major section should begin with a heading in bold capital letters centered within a column and numbered

using Arabic numerals except for ACKNOWLEDGEMENT and REFERENCES. Each section heading should be preceded with one blank line. The subsection heading should be left justified in bold letters capitalizing the first letter of each major word and numbered using Arabic numerals (2.1, 2.2, ..). Equations should be centered in the column and numbered sequentially. Place the equation number to the right of the equation with right justification within its column. When referring to an equation, use the number within parenthesis as (1).


References : When quoting a reference in the text, place the reference numbers within square brackets. The reference list should be placed in the last section.


Acknowledgement : An acknowledgment can be added as an un-numbered section before the reference section.


Figure(s) and Table(s) : Author(s) may use color traces in graphical data or color photographs. All color traces in graphical data/photograph will be available only in the soft copy of the proceeding. All the colored artwork will appear black and white in the printed version of the proceedings/conference program.

  Place figure/photograph captions directly below each figure/photograph. All such captions should be numbered sequentially using Arabic numerals.
  Place table captions just above each table. These captions, numbered sequentially using Arabic numerals, should be centered.

Defining the file name for the extended abstract : File name of the abstract (in pdf) should follow "PIS code_PIS sub code (if needed)_First Author's Last name_ First Author's First name_paper number". First author will be the one who would be presenting the paper. In case, there is only one paper, "paper number" would be "1", if there are two papers from the same first author; it would be "2" and so on. Please strictly follow the above mentioned sequence in naming the abstract file.

  Examples of the correct file name : "OFT_PC_Aggarwal_Ajay_1", "GP_Plodinec_David_1" and "GP_Plodinec_David_2".

For plenary/invited Speakers : Guidelines for the extended abstract of the plenary/invited talks remain the same except for the following minor changes: (a) Please mention "Invited/Plenary" instead of "Presentation Preference" at the top right corner.
