Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique 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 citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B...0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

This issue of the Proceedings of the Optics & Photonics (SPIE 2015) from conference 9309 ‘Mechanisms of Low Light Therapy X’ had 35 abstracts submitted, of which 27 were podium presentations and 8 were invited as poster presentations. Of these, 24 papers (some collated from multiple presenters) have been submitted as manuscripts broadly based in four categories that represent the meeting’s 4 sessions: Reviews and Dosimetery, In Vitro, and Animal or Clinical Studies.

The highlight of this meeting was the wide range of interests and expertise in a rapidly evolving field of low light therapy that is best personified by the acceptance of a scientifically accurate term ‘Photobiomodulation’ by the National Library of Medicine. A comprehensive review by the organizers of this meeting outlines the current state of the field highlighting exciting new progress in the lab research and clinical applications. A massive problem in the field currently is the inaccuracy of the physical parameters of therapy and this is discussed in a concise review paper in this volume.

A majority of the ongoing investigations examine effects of light based interventions in simplified, in vitro models and this is well represented by the largest number of papers and presentations at this meeting. Among these, special emphasis is placed on lineage differences to light therapy such as distinct effects on dental stem cells, osteoblasts, keratinocytes as well as microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. These differences are critical for our better understanding to applying light therapy for in vivo and human clinical applications. Demonstrating proof of principle in animal models provides the ability to test a large number of interventional variables as well as examining relevant, in vivo parameters robustly. Studies presented in these proceedings range from the basics of light-tissue interactions to effects in specific pathophysiological processes such as wound healing and diabetes. The final frontier for human clinical use is borne by translation research studies and these proceedings highlight the range of studies being attempted in pain, inflammation and wound healing.

The meeting also had a good number of posters being presented to promote interactions and active discussions in the forum. Overall, it was a very informative and engaging meeting showcasing the growing popularity and utility of light based interventions for human health. Next year promises to bring forth much more excitement and innovations. See you all there!
