The submission for the postdeadline is now closed.

The postdeadline session will take place on Thursday, 25 August 2016, from 18:30 to 19:30

Authors are now encouraged to submit postdeadline papers.

Postdeadline papers cover original, unpublished work on the conference topics.

The purpose of postdeadline papers will be to give conference participants the opportunity to hear new and significant results in rapidly advancing areas. Only those papers judged to be truly excellent and compelling in their timeliness will be accepted for presentation in postdeadline sessions.

Authors must obtain appropriate approval to have their paper reviewed by and presented to an international audience.

Mode of presentation: Oral only.

Deadline for the submissions: Friday 1 July 2016, 08:00 p.m. (GMT+1, local time on site).

Absolutely no papers received after this deadline will be considered by the Programme Committee. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.

Papers should be submitted to only one topic, "Solid-state lasers" or "Fibre, and Waveguide Devices".

The notifications are planned to be sent out on Monday 18 July 2016

Authors are requested to:
1) Electronically submit their paper on-line (a 50-word abstract and a one page summary in pdf format)
2) Return the copyright form (download the template here in .pdf or .doc format) and email it within one week to the EPS office at

Required documents:

1. A 50-word abstract

2. A one page summary in pdf format (download template .pdf | .doc)

Please follow the following layout recommendations

- Paper size: A4 format (210mm X 297mm)
- Margins: left & right = 25 mm, top & bottom = 25 mm
- Format: Acrobat (*.pdf) file
- Title: use 14pt Times bold letters centred on the page, elements and acronyms should be capitalized.
- list all authors’ names, organisation/affiliation & mailing address under the title:

Centre author name(s) on one line. Use 10-point, bold font. Author names should include first and middle names or initials followed by surname. Their affiliations must be indicated through the use of appropriate superscripts.
Centre author affiliation(s) on the following lines. Use 8-point, italic font. Affiliations should follow the format: division, organization, address. Do not use abbreviations.

- Introductory Text
Please be concise in your presentation, highlighting what is novel and original about your submission. Do not repeat the separate 50 word abstract.

- Main text
The first line of the first paragraph of a section or subsection should start flush left. The first line of subsequent paragraphs within the section or subsection should be indented 0.5 cm.

- Tables
Tables should be centred and numbered consecutively. Table titles should be centred above the table and in a 10-point font. If the title is more than one line, it should have margins that match the width of the table. Tables should be positioned as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text.

- Figures
Figures should also be placed as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the text. All the figures should be centred, except for small figures less than 6 cm in width, which may be placed side by side. No part of a figure should extend beyond the typing area. Text should not wrap around figures. The figures should be provided in greyscale.
Figure captions should be centred beneath figures and in an 8-point font. Figure captions should be indented 1 cm on both sides and justified on both right and left sides.

- Equations
Equations should be centred, unless they are so long that less than 1 cm will be left between the end of the equation and the equation number, in which case they may run on to the next line. Equation numbers should only appear to the right of the last line of the equation, in parentheses. For long equations, the equation number may appear on the next line. For very long equations, the right side of the equation should be broken into approximately equal parts and aligned to the right of the equal sign.

- References
References should appear at the end of the article in the order in which they are referenced in the body of the paper. The font should be 8 point, and the references should be aligned left.
Within the main text, references should be designated by a number in brackets [1], and they should precede a comma or period [2]. Two references cited at once should be included together [2,3], separated by a comma, while three or more consecutive references should be indicated by the bounding numbers and a dash [1–3].
For journal articles, authors are listed first, followed by the article’s full title in quotes, the journal’s title abbreviation, the volume number in bold, page number, and the year in parentheses.

Directives for the electronic submission:

1. Creation of an account in order to log on.
As a first step you need to create an account.
You can either directly open an account and submit the contribution or you can create a user account and later on log on to submit the contribution.
In any case, additional contributions can be submitted using your login details received by email.

In case you already submitted a paper to Europhoton 2014 or registered for the conference, you already created the account and just need to add or ask for your username (email address or user-ID) and password directly on the electronic submission website. These were also earlier emailed to your address.

The person who registers will be considered as the “submitter” and all further correspondence will only be sent to him/her. The submitter will receive an email confirming the chosen username and a password in order to be able to log on and send on line the paper and all future submissions.

By accessing the conference management system you can:
- View and modify your personal details
- Modify or withdraw your conference submission
- See the status

2. Authors’ list

The submitter needs to enter the COMPLETE authors' information including himself/herself in case she/he is also a co-author. The submitter is entirely responsible for entering the full and correct list of all the authors. The presenter needs to be marked with a bullet. List the authors as per your wished order. EPS will not make any change.

The submitter is authorized to bring any change (single page summary, 50-word abstract, list of authors) until Friday 1 July 2016, 08:00 p.m. (GMT+1, local time on site). After that deadline the review process will begin and no change can any longer be brought.

These recommendations are intended to avoid technical problems in the transferral of your paper to the conference on line digest. Failure to follow these recommendations may result in papers being returned to authors. Please note that the EPS will not manipulate or edit papers.
The selected summaries will be published in the on line digest. No additional manuscript will be required. Since contributed papers are selected on the basis of the summary, it should convey the original results in a succinct manner rather than describe the research topic.

Any of the following conditions may result in rejection of a paper:
- failure to submit the paper by the deadline date
- failure to complete the required fields on the web based submission form
- failure to follow the compulsory layout recommendations (a 50-word abstract, a single page summary in pdf format)
- failure to send the copyright form.

Authors will be notified whether their papers have been accepted by 18 July 2016. Notifications will be sent to the email address as given during the electronic submission.
