Joint Feature Issue of Applied Optics and Optics Express

Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI) 2021

Submissions Open: 1 August 2021
Submission Deadline: 1 October 2021

Applied Optics and Optics Express welcome submissions to a feature issue on "Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging 2021" in conjunction with the Imaging and Applied Optics Congress, which will take place virtually on 19-23 July 2021. Whereas meeting participants are particularly encouraged to submit their work, the feature issue is open to all contributions in related areas.

This feature issue will highlight the latest advances in computational imaging research, emphasizing integration of opto-electric measurement and computational processing; theoretical to experimental demonstration and applications of the latest advances in computational imaging research; and computational sensing and imaging applications spanning fundamental science to medical, security, and defense industry applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Non-Line-of-Sight Imaging
  • Quantum Imaging
  • Event Sensing
  • Single-photon Imaging
  • Physics aware Deep Learning
  • Digital Holographic Microscopy
  • Computational Imaging for SLAM
  • Fighting COVID with computational imaging and sensing

Authors may choose between Applied Optics and Optics Express when submitting to the joint feature issue, but should recognize the differences between them and select the appropriate journal. The guest editors may recommend transferring a manuscript to the other journal as needed. For Applied Optics, submissions will emphasize the practical applications of science and technology. All other topics will be better suited for Optics Express. Papers will appear in their respective journals. Additionally, a combined table of contents of papers from both journals will appear once all papers are published.

All submissions need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journals. The standard Applied Optics and Optics Express Publication Charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, an expanded conference paper needs to add value to the original conference proceedings and the conference paper number must be included in the cover letter at submission. Please see Optica Publishing Group's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.

Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Applied Optics or Optics Express and submit through Prism's manuscript submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the feature issue on Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging 2021.
