SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2020 – New Digital Forum

SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum 2020

SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum | 27 April - 1 May 2020

SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum is a newly launched version of SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2020, reimagined into a convenient, high-quality, and timely method to share emerging research and technology advances throughout the photonics community. There is no cost to register for the Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum and to view the presentations.

Watch presentations on your own schedule during the forum week, post questions to authors, and engage with your colleagues. Authors will respond to questions received through the platform.

Mark your calendar. The scientific community needs to keep dialog and information dissemination open, even under times when we cannot meet face-to-face for valuable discussions and debate. The SPIE community looks forward to your participation.

Registration details for the SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum will be available soon.

What is the Digital Forum?

SPIE Digital Forums, like our in-person conferences, offer a rich exchange of research and advancements, made accessible via the SPIE Digital Library online platform. Together we can move scientific discussion forward during this time when we cannot meet face-to-face.

The upload site for the SPIE Digital Library platform allows oral and poster authors from the conference program to share their self-recorded presentations (audio and PowerPoint).

During the live phase of the forum, participants from the global photonics community are encouraged to engage with the authors' works by watching presentations and posting questions and comments. Authors will respond to questions throughout the week.

Why are we holding a Digital Forum?

While we had to cancel the in-person gathering due to the global COVID-19 health crisis, we know how important it is for our community to report the advances many had hoped to present at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing. We have created this new method to continue the information exchange and networking that our community values and relies upon.

We are in process of refunding or crediting registration fees for SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing, and we are actively reaching out to the community to participate in this free event instead. Scientists and engineers in optics and photonics are making great progress, so please plan to participate and continue to drive breakthroughs in this field.
