The 33rd ISOM (ISOM'23) will be held from November 19 to 22, 2023, at TAKAMATSU SYMBOL TOWER in Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan. ISOM'23 will discuss the current status of Optical Memory, Imaging, Sensing, and Other Related Technologies.

The scopes of ISOM are being continuously updated and have been reorganized in 2016. To further highlight them, the official name of ISOM was changed from "International Symposium on Optical Memory" to "International Symposium on Imaging, Sensing, and Optical Memory" in 2017. In addition to ordinary contributed papers, a number of invited papers in cutting edge will be presented.

What's new
2023.11.22 ISOM'23 was successfully finished with 129 participants.
2023.11.21 First Call for Paper of ISOM'24 is available(Download).
2023.11.8 The application for the banquet will close on November 17th because we need to confirm the number of participants in advance.
