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 field of x-ray tomography with emphasis on micro- and nano-scale 3D imaging continues to develop rapidly. Many more laboratory and storage-ring based Computed Tomography (CT) systems are in operation, churning out data sets, than there were in August 2012 when the last Developments conference was held. Spectral CT and photon counting CT are examples of rapidly developing modalities. Strategies are becoming increasing sophisticated for rapid, accurate registration of tomography data sets with those of other modalities. Methods for reconstruction with limited data sets (missing angle ranges; small number of projections) and for phase reconstruction are becoming much more accessible.

The field remains vibrant. The editor has identified many more than 103 papers on x-ray microCT published annually, and there is great industrial effort which does not produce papers in the open literature. The third generation of tomographers is coming into their own (e.g., students of students of faculty such as Prof. Ulrich Bonse who established this conference). As time passes and a field becomes more mature, it is inevitable that members of this community are lost. Steve Wilkins a longtime proponent of x-ray imaging, developer of innovative approaches and former member of the Program Committee, died between Developments meetings. Tom Breunig died suddenly; he has been out of the field for some years but was a key member of the teams doing the first in situ tomography loading experiments of cracked samples and the in vivo microCT of small animals.

The ninth conference in the Developments series filled two entire days (oral presentations) and an evening poster session. There was a stimulating balance between mathematical treatment of reconstructions and of artifact reduction on the one hand and experimental studies and analysis strategies and instrumentation development on the other. The diversity of applications underlined the mature interdisciplinary scope of the conference. The Editor thanks the authors for their excellent talks and papers, invited and contributed; 42 manuscripts from 53 presentations appear in the conference volume. He also thanks the Program Committee for their very important help; two of them reviewed each manuscript. The photograph below shows Committee members after one of the technical sessions. Last, but not least, the SPIE staff provided exemplary support with the program development, the meeting itself and the Proceedings.
