JOSA B is planning a feature issue highlighting expanded versions of selected papers presented at the 2018 International High Power Laser Ablation Symposium (HPLA), which will be held 26-29 March 2018. Papers will cover research concerning laser-materials interaction. Only authors invited by the Feature Issue Editors to expand their conference papers may submit for this issue.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review processes of the journals. The standard JOSA B publication charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, the paper needs to add significant new information to the original conference summary. See OSA's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to JOSA B and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Laser Interaction with Materials 2018.
