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.

Fiber optic sensor technology continues to move strongly into a broader base of applications. Since the development of early fiber optic sensor technology in the late 1970s and early 1980s that was highly directed toward aerospace and defense, fiber sensors have found their way into civil structures worldwide to monitor bridges, buildings, and dams. Medical applications continue to be developed and they have become increasingly important tools to support the oil and gas industry.

To highlight the importance to the oil and gas industry and the role fiber sensors are playing in improving the safety and viability of oil exploration and extraction, Fiber Optic Sensors and Applications XI includes a special section on using fiber optic sensor technology for this important field.

Other important sections include papers on medical and chemical applications, as well as the continued development of interferometeric, distributed, and fiber grating sensors that are playing increasingly significant roles in many more areas. While fiber optic sensor technology has matured considerably for certain fields of use, significant development is ongoing to improve the viability of the technology for aerospace, defense, and civil structures. In parallel, the relatively recent introduction of the technology into the medical and oil and gas application area is rapidly expanding, while new capabilities and applications continue to be found.

Fiber Optic Sensors and Applications XI continues the tradition of recording the development of fiber optic sensor technology begun by SPIE Proceedings in the late 1970s. There are now hundreds of proceedings and thousands of papers. We hope that current and future researchers will build on this work to more fully realize the potential of this amazing technology.
