The paper submissions are still open up to a deadline on this Friday, July 20. However, I was told that post-deadline submissions are still welcomed. The submissions and participants can be from all related fields, including microoptics technology & system design, projection systems, computational optics/photography, light field acquisition and distance measurement/depth cameras.

Thanks to AO for sending me the info!


  1. In addition to the impressive speaker list, the paper titles sound exciting too. I want to read the papers now. Millisecond focus speed? All-glass wafer-level camera lenses? Plenoptic superresolution (the bane of plenoptic cameras) - all interesting topics.

    At exactly the same dates, there will be a sensor-related/radiation-related workshop in Toulouse, France. It a pitty that two interesting workshops fully run in parallel.
