Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first 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, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four 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. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

This year’s conference brought a wide range of papers related to ISR Systems and Applications. The conference was broken into multiple sessions, which addressed several different parts of the ISR TCPED image chain (Tasking, Capture, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination):

  • Strategies and Training

  • Optics and Gimbals

  • Sensors

  • Image Processing

  • Video Processing

We would like to thank all the authors for their efforts to make our conference such a success. Their efforts to write and present their papers are greatly appreciated. Their innovations in this exciting field make our conference better each year, and we look forward to the 2015 conference to see what additional advances have been made in these areas, as well as the introduction of new technologies that have been developed.

See you at DSS 2015!
