Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a seven-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first five digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the seven-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first five digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The twenty-first annual conference for Novel Optical Systems Design and Optimization was held in San Diego, California, this year. We had a full one-day program. The four technical sessions were dedicated to Unconventional and Light Field Optics; Multi- and Hyperspectral Applications; and, as a double, to Novel Optical Systems and Methods, the latter covering several metrology and inspection systems. In addition, there was a poster session.

The session on Unconventional and Light Field Optics started with two invited papers from the VR world, chaired by R. Hamilton Shepard. Craig Olsen was responsible for Multi- and Hyperspectral Applications, which included highlights with spectral catalogue data, as they are highly appreciated among researchers. Stephan Fahr chaired the first “Novel” session, which brought up two miningrelated topics: photogrammetry of underground excavations and inspection of mining products. Groot Gregory finished with the second “Novel” session, one highlight being optical designs represented and altered by “genetic expression programming” methods.

Our conference had several invited papers, some of which complemented each other in a surprising, or intended, way.

Our thanks go to all the speakers and authors who made this conference a coherent and interesting event. We are very grateful to those who helped make this conference a success, especially SPIE staff, the program committee, and of course, the interested audience, sparing no effort to keep the discussion going.

The SPIE staff ensured that everything ran smoothly before, during, and after the meeting.

The program committee provided excellent assistance to ensure the quality of the content while also presiding over a number of the sessions. Thanks to them for keeping our conference running smoothly and on time. Also, thanks to everyone else on our program committee for helping review the abstracts and paper submissions: Francois Callewaert, Joseph Choi, Arthur Davis, Peter Goldstein, Eric Herman, John Koshel, Sara Madaan, Bharathwaj Narasimhan, José Sasián, Hayin Sun and Udo Zölzer.

Next year, we will return for our twenty-second conference. The chairs will be Cornelius Hahlweg and Joseph Mulley. We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
