SPIE Slack Help

Watch videos to learn how Slack is used for SPIE events

Below are some quick videos to help you prepare for a SPIE event, using Slack to engage with presenters and colleagues. These videos will walk you through how to get started in a new event workspace, find channels and conferences, and locate a specific presentation or paper.

Channels common to all workspaces:

  • #general - A channel with information about the event, handy quick links, and other information.
  • #help - Information for attendees about getting help with Slack or any other matters.

Desktop app or browser?

Slack users can choose to run the program through a browser, the downloaded desktop app, or the downloaded mobile app. For SPIE events, we recommend downloading and using the desktop app for the easiest use.
