Call for
The ODS special conference offers an excellent forum for exchanging information on the status, advances, and future directions in the field of optical data storage and related technologies. The Blu-ray-Disc-based professional archival optical disk system has been put into practical use. However, competition with hard disk drives and solid state drives, as well as the growth of storage in the cloud, is making it unclear what the future ODS system might look like.

In 2018, the scope of ODS conference will be extended to “industrial Optical Devices and Systems (iODS)”. Currently, optics research and development community in industry, which was very active in ODS in the past, is seeking for new applications of the technologies developed for ODS. Of course, new developments in technologies for future ODS systems such as holographic recording and new methodologies in related areas such as nano-photonics will be the main focus at this conference. In addition, the possibility of applications of ODS technologies to emerging industrial domains such as IoT, big data, intelligent cars, healthcare, security, etc. will be discussed. Contributions in a variety of areas including traditional ODS as well as new iODS are strongly encouraged.

Papers are solicited in the following and related areas:
  • holographic recording
  • multi-dimensional recording
  • heat-assisted magnetic recording
  • other technologies for future ODS
  • basic theory and modeling
  • testing and characterization
  • media and materials
  • components and devices
  • coding and signal processing
  • systems and applications
  • nano-photonics related to ODS
  • plasmonics related to ODS
  • spintronics related to ODS
  • bio-photonics related to ODS
  • other technologies related to ODS
  • professional archival storage
  • Internet of Things
  • big data
  • other applications of ODS technologies.
