1 PHOTOPTICS 2020, 8th Int. Conf. on Photonics, Optics and Laser Technology SCOPE Optics has a long and distinct tradition among physical sciences. Ever-present throughout human history, optical systems and phenomena have been subject of interest in all cultures and epochs, from the ancient times of geometrical optics, across the works of Alhazen, Kepler, Descartes, Newton, Huygens, Young, Fresnel, Poisson and many others, to the electromagnetic theory synthesis of Maxwell, culminating in the quantum mechanics revolution of the first half of the 20th century which has come to pave the way for modern laser and photonics technologies. Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, with an ever-increasing number of applications covering medical sciences (vision technologies, surgical instrumentation, medical imaging), spatial exploration (telescopes, lenses, spectrometers), telecommunications (fiber optics), information processing (quantum computing), industry (from cutting, welding to precision metrology) and military/weaponry technology, to name but a few examples. Furthermore, laser and optical technology are in general absolutely essential to performing applied research in areas such as chemistry and biology, providing fundamental analysis tools. The success of optical systems and technologies in high-end scientific research has also found its way into everyday consumer products such as printers, displays, discs, cameras and eyeglasses, not to forget that optical fiber is crucial to telecommunications in general and internet in particular. This 8th edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature three different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects. Researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in any of these fields are welcome to join us in Prague, Czech Republic and present their work on new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, as well as general survey papers indicating future directions. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published on the Proceedings of PHOTOPTICS, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Companies interested in presenting their products or methodologies or even researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference website. CONFERENCE AREAS Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas: 1. LASERS 2. OPTICS 3. PHOTONICS AREA 1: LASERS Biomedical and Therapeutic Laser Applications Fiber Lasers and Applications High Intensity Lasers and High Field Phenomena Laser Spectroscopy and Microscopy Plasma Technologies Quantum Electronics and Laser Science Quantum Information and Measurement

2 Semiconductor Lasers and LEDs AREA 2: OPTICS Adaptive Optics Optics in Astronomy and Astrophysics Spectroscopy, Imaging and Metrology Applied Industrial Optics Biomedical Optics Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging Fiber Optics Technology Light-Matter Interaction Optical Communications and Networking Optical Instrumentation Optical Materials and Devices AREA 3: PHOTONICS Fiber Optics Devices Optogenetics Organic and Bio-Photonics Photodetectors, Sensors and Imaging Photonic and Optoelectronic Materials and Devices Photonics for Energy Plasmonic Structures and Quantum Dots Ultrafast Electronics, Photonics and Optoelectronics Green Photonics Microwave Photonics MOEMS-MEMS Molecular Energy Transfer and Light Harvesting Molecular Photophysics and Spectroscopy Nanophotonics and Optical Manipulation Nonlinear Optics and Photonics Optofluidics KEYNOTE SPEAKERS PHOTOPTICS 2020 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed. PAPER SUBMISSION Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors personal details, the acknowledgments section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors identity. Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with

3 proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, portraying a short report of work in progress or an arguable opinion about an issue discussing ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research focused on one of the conference topic areas. All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates that can be found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation . PUBLICATIONS All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on digital support. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper on our digital library is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Semantic Scholar and Google Scholar.
