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.

As the world’s leading conference in liquid crystal optics, photonics and displays, the 2015 SPIE Photonics West “Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies X” conference successfully drew a large and enthusiastic crowd. The conference provided a platform for intellectual and enlightening discussions of current state and exploration of emerging frontiers of liquid crystal science and technologies in optics, photonics and displays.

The scientific program featured keynote, invited and contributed papers, which covered a wide range of topics such as Nanoparticles Doped Systems, Soft Mechanics and Metamaterials, New Materials and Effects, Chiral Phases and Applications, Waveguides and Spatial Light Modulators, Active Filters and Retarders, Fast-Switching and Bistable Devices, and Lens and 3D Displays. The group of participants included a good number of invited speakers, junior scientists and graduate students who gave their research presentations at the conference. Student papers presented at both the oral and poster sessions drew large attendance and heavy traffic. I highly appreciate the program co-chairs and committee members for their contributions, which are the foundation of this successful conference.

We look forward to seeing you at the Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies XI conference in 2016.
