IEEE Workshop on Optical Characteristics and its Applications 2013


To be held in conjunction with IEEE iThings2013.   


August 20-23, 2013

Beijing, China



The optical characteristics by radiation or scattering are very active subfields of optic detect system research. The Optical Characteristics and its Applications 2013 (OC&A 2013) workshop will serve as a meeting point for researchers working on Optic Modeling and Simulation, Measurement Techniques, Data Processing, Detection and Recognition Techniques, etc. It also aims at stimulating communications and exchanges between research institution workers and academic experts.


Topics of Interests


Novel papers are invited from academic and research institutions, describing intriguing phenomena, original results, new technical implementations, or in-depth user studies, including but not limited to, the following:


(01) Modeling and Simulation

(02) Optic Measurement Techniques

(03) Optic Characteristics of Materials

(04) Atmosphere Propagation

(05) Laser Scattering

(06) Optic Sensor Simulation and Evaluation

(07) Image Processing

(08) Hyperspectral Data Pre- and Post- Processing

(09) Target Detection and Recognition


Authors are invited to submit papers (IEEE standard format, max 6 pages). The IEEE templates can be found at: All submissions should be written in English, the PDF file of your paper should be sent to:


All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee, which will assess significance, originality, accuracy, and clarity. Workshop proceedings will be published in the proceedings of iThings'13 by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in several SCI-index international journals.
