Biomedical Optics Feature Announcement
Bio-Optics: Design and Application
Submission Deadline: 15 June 2013
We are pleased to announce a feature issue of Biomedical Optics Express associated with the OSA topical meeting Bio-Optics: Design and Application, held at the Optics in the Life Sciences Congress in Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii, 14-18 April 2013. The feature issue welcomes papers presented at the conference, as well as related papers from authors who were not able to attend.
The Bio-Optics: Design and Application topical meeting, for which this will be the second bi-annual edition, has become the pre-eminent international meeting focused on the design, fabrication, instrumentation, and application of innovative optical techniques in life science. Advances in optical techniques are significantly improving the performance and capabilities of biomedical devices and instruments and hence greatly improving the quality of our lives. Examples include high-resolution high-speed optical imaging technologies for basic life science research and diagnosis of diseases, adaptive optics for vision care, portable biomedical sensors for point of care, nanotechnologies for biomedical imaging and sensing, novel optical fabrication and 3D integration technologies for biomedical devices and biochip, optical systems for intraoperative and clinical applications, etc. This meeting and the associated feature issue will provide an excellent platform for researchers and engineers from academia and industry to discuss the most recent advances of bio-optics in life science.
Topics of interest for the feature issue include:
- Biomedical optical imaging technologies
- Design and fabrication of biomedical optical devices
- Visual optics, eye imaging and sensing
- Biosensor, biochip, optofluidics, and bio-inspired optics
- Nanophotonics for biomedicine
- Clinical systems and applications
Biomedical Optics Express is OSA's principal outlet serving the biomedical optics community, featuring rapid, open-access publication of content related to optics, photonics and imaging in the life sciences. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that make use of the special features of Biomedical Optics Express and are particularly germane to biomedical content, such as inclusion of color figures, movies, and Interactive Science Publishing -- interactive presentation of 2D and 3D image data (see www.opticsinfobase.org/isp).
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Biomedical Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSAs electronic-submission system (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/boe/journal/boe/author.cfm). When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Bio-Optics: Desing and Application feature issue. Please note that submissions to the feature issues incur the normal publication fees for Biomedical Optics Express.
