Since 2012, the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) and OSA have been organizing a joint English language symposium during the JSAP Autumn meeting. The symposium aims to encourage students and early-career researchers inside and outside Japan to present and discuss their updated works in English, and it welcomes the entire broad fields of optical science and photonics, and their satellite topics.
The scope of this symposium corresponds with the scope of the technically sound journal, OSA Continuum, which aims to publish research, including negative results, with high standards for technical accuracy, scientific rigor, and presentation quality, without judgment of the potential impact or significance in optics and photonics.
This feature issue in OSA Continuum will be restricted to those who presented at the JSAP-OSA joint symposium and will cover a wide range of new fundamental science and advanced technologies for optical science and photonics. This issue also welcomes useful computational numerical simulations in optical science and photonics, and manuscripts that offer technical "know-how" in the above related applications.
Topics of interest correspond to the JSAP-OSA joint symposium session titles:
All submissions should present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journal. The standard OSA Continuum Article Processing 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 OSA's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.
Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to OSA Continuum and submit through OSA's submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the feature issue from JSAP-OSA Joint Symposium 2020.
