SPIE Paper Submission
Details to be announced

Submit an Abstract (Opens 01 Apr 2023)

1. Create user account/login with your email and password here:
The account enables a user to perform tasks like edit submission(s), monitor review status, view registration records, download/print invoices, receipts, and presenter schedule, keep track of what’s new on the announcement board.

2. On the left menu, click ‘My Submissions’ under ‘Author Options’
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to submit your abstract.
  • An abstract ID will be assigned to each successfully submitted abstract. For faster services, please quote your abstract ID in all correspondences.
3. Guidelines
  • English is the official language throughout the meeting.
  • Only abstracts received via the icOPEN2023 submission portal will be considered.
  • Abstract should contain text only (no graphics or mathematical equations) and may not exceed 250 words.
  • Authors will be required to state their preferred presentation mode (Oral or Poster) which is usually honored though not guaranteed to be satisfied.
  • Authors can make changes to their abstracts but must be before review decisions have been made. Example of changes: abstract title and/or contents, add/remove/re-order authors, withdraw an abstract etc.
  • All co-authors must be added to prevent omission from all publications and the author index.
  • All abstracts are subject to a peer review process. Reviewers are the conference’s scientific committee of experts in fields specifically matching the conference topics.
  • Authors of accepted abstracts may choose to submit a full paper.
  • By submitting the abstract, you are granting icOPEN organizers permission to disseminate it electronically.
4. Review & Acceptance
  • Abstracts will be reviewed based on their contents and scientific merit.
  • Authors will be notified of review decisions from 19 Oct 2023.
  • Acceptance is on condition that at least one author will register and present the paper at the conference. icOPEN2023 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference if the paper is not presented at the conference.
