Special daytime previewing prior to the session from 12:00 noon to 4:30 pm. Attendees are required to wear their conference registration badges to access Level 200, Mezzanine to view the posters.

Posters that are not set up by the 5:00 pm cut-off time will be considered no-shows, and their manuscripts may not be published. Poster authors should accompany their posters from 6:00 to 7:30 pm to answer questions from attendees. All posters and other materials must be removed no later than 8:00 pm. Any posters or materials left behind at the close of the poster session will be considered unwanted and will be discarded. SPIE assumes no responsibility for posters left up after the end of each poster session.
