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.

The eighth edition of the Spintronics symposium of the SPIE conference gathered more than one hundred speakers in San Diego from Sunday, 9 to Thursday, 13 August 2015.

In line with the seven previous editions, the Spintronics symposium, held in the framework of the Optics+Photonics conference, covered most of the hot topics in Spintronics. The conference was an invaluable opportunity for informal and extremely stimulating discussions between experts, which cultivated a friendly atmosphere for networking—exhibiting the dynamism of our field of research.

With 26 oral sessions and one poster session, the symposium gave a broad spectrum of hot topics in Spintronics. Participants discussed recent fundamental results at the forefront of theoretical, experimental, and technological developments. Presenters paid special attention (with 2 or 3 sessions) to 2D transitions-metal dichalcogenides and graphene, spin-ice, magnetic sensors and memories, organic materials, and spin-orbit torque phenomena.

Sessions covered many other active topics, including: spin-coherence, spin pumping, spin injection, and spin dynamics; utra-fast spectroscopy; Rashba, Dresselhaus, and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions; skyrmions and topological insulators; magnon Hall effect; spin-charge coupling in semiconductors; nanomagnetism; topological phase; Majorana Fermions; superconductivity; voltage control; and multiferroics.

Note that the sessions on spin laser and spin photonics take a growing importance in the framework of the Optics+Photonics SPIE annual meetings.

Finally, we are grateful for the SPIE staff and Program Committee members who did tremendous work. Special thanks to all colleagues and friends who helped organize the focused sessions. We warmly thank all of the authors and speakers for their active participation; they have made this conference a great success.
