2-6 de junio, 2014. SantanderThe IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology presents a forum for authors to publish expanded papers in a Special Issue on the 23rd International Conference on OPTICAL FIBER SENSORS.  
The Chairs of the conference serve as Guest Editors in this endeavor.

On behalf of the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief, we encourage you to submit an expanded version of your accepted conference paper to the journal. Typically, these papers are 5 to 7 pages in length. Mandatory page charges of $260USD per page are enforced in excess of 7 pages.  This paper would appear in an upcoming JLT special issue titled «OFS 23.»  Normally, a large number of invitees take advantage of the opportunity. Based on this, we hope you will be able to submit such a paper.
