Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of 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 and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • 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.


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.

In 2015, the name of our conference changed from Physical Optics to Computational Optics. This change was intended to help align the expectations of the authors and audiences with the interests of the organizers. We feel that the new name evokes something closer to the kinds of topics we want to learn about and share: the simulation of optical phenomena and systems using either novel techniques or by applying conventional techniques to develop new paradigm situations. Discussions with participants during and after the conference tended to support our decision to change the name.

This year’s conference was filled with excellent speakers and an equally attentive audience that provided many questions and lively discussions. Our keynote talk by Donis Flagello was an historical overview of computation in lithography – a field that now depends heavily on computational optics for every cycle of development.

This was then followed by two and a half days of computational optics presentations, as well as had three posters presented on Tuesday. The eight regular sessions included: Imaging Applications (sessions 1 and 5), Optical Field Propagation Techniques (session 2), Applications in Medicine and Energy Harvesting (session 3), Non-imaging Applications (session 4), Electromagnetic Field Methods (session 6), Inverse Imaging (session 7), and Computational Optics (Session 8).
