What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Optics
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Laser

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics was organized to reinforce research efforts on Optoelectronics, Optics, Laser, Photonics and Fiber laser. The concepts on Optoelectronics presented in the event can also apply to other research fields, including Optical fiber and Nonlinear optics. The studies tackled, which mainly focus on Optics, apply to Spectroscopy as well.

Discussions in it are anchored in the subject of Laser and the similar topic of Power (physics). While Photonics is the focus of Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, it also provided insights into the studies of Quantum, Photonic crystal and Photon. It focuses on Fiber laser as well as the interrelated topic of Mode-locking.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Ultrafast Broadband Photodetectors Based on Three-Dimensional Dirac Semimetal Cd 3 AS 2 (108 citations)
  • High speed device-independent quantum random number generation without detection loophole (70 citations)
  • Long-Range Transport of Organic Exciton-Polaritons Revealed by Ultrafast Microscopy (53 citations)

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2018 edition, 4.34% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 17.03% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 8.04% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 20.95% of all publications and 53.98% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
