Chair & Committee Member Information

The responsibilities of being Conference Chair, Program Committee member, or 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 your dedication and for volunteering your time and expertise - we truly could not do this without you.  

If you have any questions or concerns at any point along the way, please don't hesitate to contact Kirsten Anderson, your Conference Program Coordinator.
