The OFS organizing committee invites proposals for 90-min to 2-hr tutorials to be presented on Monday morning, June 7th, 2021. The target audience includes students and researchers new to a field. A tutorial should provide a balanced, informative overview of the field, e.g. basic principles, current and emerging research, and/or applications. Presenting a tutorial is an excellent way to network and establish one’s reputation in the community. Tutorial speakers will be offered a reduced registration rate, and will be invited to the committee dinner.

The committee will consider any subject relevant to the OFS conference and of sufficiently broad interests to the community. Potential tutorial subjects include but are not limited to:

  • Microresonators
  • Quantum sensing
  • Silicon photonics for sensors
  • Frequency stabilization
  • Cavity optomechanics
  • Fiber optic interferometry
  • Laser written waveguides
  • Distributed sensing
  • Simulation tools in optics
  • Novel fiber technology
  • MEMS/MEOMS sensors
  • Advanced imaging with fiber optics

Submission Guidelines:

Tutorial proposals should be a 1 page abstract with the following information:

  • Title
  • Name(s), affiliation, and contact information of the speak(s)
  • A description of the subject, the scope and depth of the tutorial. Indicate any special format and equipment requirement
