Promote your work

We want you to get the most out of your work and participation in SPIE events--that's why we want to encourage you to share your work. Participants who share their work in at least some form are more likely to have a successful event experience.

Social media platforms including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and blogs are great places to share items such as your abstract, paper, or the proceedings, as well as invite people to watch your presentation.

To make this process easier, we have gathered a few resources below to help you get started.

Tips for sharing

Whether you want to share with an individual colleague or thousands of social media followers, it can be a quick and easy way to benefit you and your work.

 • Utilize email if you are not active on social media
 • Like and share applicable posts on social media
 • Contact your organization to see if they will do some social activity on your behalf
