Call for
Optics and photonics, similarly to their electronics counterpart, have slowly but steadily migrated from an analog age to a digital age. The term 'digital' refers not only to the end functionality as it does in "digital electronics", but also to the way they are designed, fabricated and integrated in systems:

    a) Numerical algorithms help design non-conventional optics from macroscopic (freeform optics) to nanoscopic scales (metasurfaces, plasmonics...).
    b) Binary or grey scale lithography techniques and freeform mold diamond turning allow for mass production.
    c) Digital techniques enhance their functionality, as in computational imaging or display. Digital switching alter their functions, as in switchable, tunable and reconfigurable optics.

This conference aims at combining all three aspects of the digital optics realm around the four following topics. These topics are gaining today massive interest in academia, research institutions, industry (including consumer electronics), as well as in the Venture Capital investment field.

Novel optics for augmented, mixed and virtual reality systems (AR, MR, VR)
    novel optics for compact imaging, optical combining and eyebox generation
    technologies to mitigate Vergence/Accomodation Conflict (VAC)
    foveated rendering technologies and algorithms
    dimming technologies and pixel occlusions.

Digital optics for image formation
    LCOS, Micro-OLED, DLP and i-LED micro-display technologies
    technologies and algorithms for dynamic holographic projection
    MEMS and fiber scanner display engines.

Computational optics for display and imaging
    computational imaging and display
    single pixel, lensless and integral imaging cameras
    digital holography systems and algorithms.

Switchable, tunable and digitally reconfigurable optics
    dynamic vision correction

    tunable optics to generate enhanced visual comfort (VAC mitigation)
    dynamic aberration control in imaging systems.

Digital optics for sensing
    compact eye tracking systems and algorithms
    3D depth cameras and 3D sensors systems
    optical gesture sensing and integrated motion sensors.
    optical biometric authentication systems.
