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.

The inaugural conference on Sensors for Extreme Harsh Environments showcased recent results from members of this unique and emerging community. During this conference, insights on the performance and design considerations of sensor materials, devices and systems within harsh radiation, temperature and chemical environments were presented. In addition, the requirements for implementing these new technologies on actual commercial (automotive and geothermal power) and space/defense platforms (space rovers and hypersonic structures) were highlighted. A roadmap for addressing the challenges of integrating and manufacturing reliable micro- and nano-scale devices for harsh environment sensing applications was discussed. Representation from academia, industry and government agencies provided a comprehensive audience. Also, participants from overseas—Belgium, Austria, Germany and Taiwan—aided in obtaining a global view of the challenges of this field.

We would like to thank our esteemed colleagues for making it an insightful and productive conference. We are thrilled to share your hard work and exciting results through this proceedings volume. We look forward to building upon our initial success at DSS 2015!
