  • Make the presentation as scheduled in the program.

  • Obtain funding for their registration fees, travel, and accommodations, independent of SPIE, through their sponsoring organizations.

  • To provide the research community with enhanced access to information presented at SPIE conferences, SPIE will record the audio plus screen content of oral presentations and, with author permission only, will publish the recordings on the SPIE Digital Library. When submitting an abstract, you will be asked to respond to the permission request.
  • Only original material should be submitted.
  • Abstracts should contain enough detail to clearly convey the approach and the results of the research.
  • Commercial papers, papers with no new research/development content, and papers where supporting data or a technical description cannot be given for proprietary reasons will not be accepted for presentation in this conference.
  • Please do not submit the same, or similar, abstracts to multiple conferences.
