Chairs & Committee Member Information

The responsibilities of being Conference Chair, Program Committee Member, and Session Chair are crucial to the success of SPIE events, and it is you, our incredible volunteers, who are the true engine of the Society. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire staff of SPIE, THANK YOU for volunteering your time and dedication - we truly could not do this without you.
