    Refund Policy
    There is a EU35 service charge for processing refunds. Requests for registration refunds must be received no later than 16.00 hrs PST, 9 August 2009 to be honoured. All registration fees will be forfeit after this date. Membership dues are not refundable. SPIE Digital Library subscriptions are not refundable.

    Audio, Video, Digital Recording Policy
    Personal photographs and video taping of individual booths (and their displays) is not allowed without the explicit permission from the company representative on-site. Failure to obtain consent could result in losing your film and being asked to leave the Exhibition Hall.

    Due to copyright restrictions, no recordings of any kind are permitted without prior written consent of the presenter in any conference session, short course or poster sessions. Consent forms are available at the SPIE Europe Audiovisual Desk and anyone wishing to record must have a written consent form signed and filed for each presenter being recorded. Individuals not complying with this policy will be asked to leave a given session and asked to surrender their film or recording media.

    In the Exhibition Hall: For security and courtesy reasons, photographing or videotaping individual booths and displays in the exhibit hall is allowed only with explicit permission from on-site company representatives. Individuals not complying with this policy will be asked to surrender their film and to leave the exhibition hall.

    Laser Pointer Safety Information
    SPIE Europe supplies tested and safety approved laser pointers for all conference meeting rooms, and for short course rooms if instructors request one. For safety reasons, SPIE Europe requests that presenters use our provided laser pointers available in each meeting room.

    If using your own laser pointer, have it tested at your facility to make sure it has <5 mW power output. Laser pointers in Class II and IIIa (<5 mW) are eye safe if power output is correct - but don't automatically trust the labeling. Commercially available laser pointers, red or green (or any color), could be incorrectly labelled as to their wavelength and power output.

    Use of a personal laser pointer at a SPIE Europe event represents user's acceptance of liability for use of a non-SPIE Europe supplied laser pointer device. Misuse of any laser pointer could lead to eye damage.

    Underage Persons on Exhibition Floor
    For safety and insurance reasons, no persons under the age of 16 will be allowed in the exhibition area during move-in and move-out. During open exhibition hours, only children over the age of 12 accompanied by an adult will be allowed in the exhibition area.

    No Suitcasing Policy
    Suitcasing is the act of soliciting business in the aisles during the exhibition or in other public spaces, including another company's booth or a hotel lobby. Please note that while all meeting attendees are invited to the exhibition, any attendee who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, in another company's booth, or in violation of any portion of SPIE Exhibition Policy will be asked to leave immediately. Additional penalties may be applied. Please report any violations you may observe to show management.

    Unsecured Items
    Personal belongings such as briefcases, backpacks, coats, book bags, etc. should not be left unattended in meeting rooms or public areas.  These items will be subject to removal by security upon discovery.
