The EOSAM Topical Meeting presentations will be available to registered attendees during the conference week as on-demand sessions.
    Attendees can ask questions from the speakers during the week, and we ask our authors to respond to all questions by Thursday 14:00 CEST.

    As EOSAM takes an online form this year, due to Covid-19, we want to support our researchers and will provide a platform for authors to publish their research (all topics included). All accepted abstracts will be published in the online conference proceedings in September, with no travelling required.

    As this year is exceptional, and it is hardly possible to get new scientific findings published fast, to help the researchers, we extended the
    submission deadline until 10 June 2020.

    Normal review process is included, and all submitted and accepted papers will be published in the EOSAM online proceedings, open access, in the Web of Sciences, with DOI and indexation to CrossRef®.

    In addition, authors will be asked to present the talk online (voluntary), either as live or pre-recorded. More details provided soon.


    Submissions (2-page abstract) are welcomed for all the topical meetings (all topics of optics included!).
    The topics are listed on each topical meeting site. Each topical meeting has their own program committee and chairs who will review the submissions.

    3) Important when submitting

    • Select the correct topical meeting ("TOM") in the submission phase (13 different TOMs and some special sessions to choose from).
