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.

Photonics technologies have become pervasive and contribute to many different sectors including communications, sensing, displays, and lighting. It is in this context that Montreal welcomes the Canadian and International Photonics communities to its annual premier event: Photonics North 2014.

Researchers will share their latest results and innovations. The programming includes a collection of plenary, invited, and contributed talks as well as a commercial exhibit will allow several Canadian and foreign suppliers of photonic technology and instrumentation to showcase their products.

On behalf of the entire Program Committee, we welcome you to Photonics North.

David V. Plant

On behalf of the organizing committee for Photonics North 2014 I would like to welcome you to the “Palais des Congrès” in Montreal for the 17th annual Photonics North Conference. We have an exciting conference covering topics ranging from the fundamental interaction of photons with matter to practical sensors for a variety of useful applications.

Sessions this year include: Optical Communications; Optoelectronics and Integrated Optics; Photonics Materials; Nonlinear Optics, Nanophotonics and Quantum Optics; Photonic Sensors and Biomedical Optics; Photonic Commercialization; Photonic Theory, Design, and Simulation; Plasmonic, Hybrid Plasmonics, and Artificial Media; High Power Laser Technology, Ultrafast Optics, and Applications; and Green Photonics, Energy, and Related Technologies.

We are fortunate to have a large group of experts (including your colleagues and friends) coming together in a venue that is conducive to fostering new ideas and integrating innovative concepts across disciplines. The conference is committed to a high standard of excellence and we promise that you will agree that the bar has been raised again this year.

Enjoy Photonics North 2014!
