SPIE Optics + Photonics 2021 - Plan to join your colleagues in San Diego

Connect with your community.

Looking forward to a return to San Diego this August? We are too.
We are actively working on making Optics + Photonics 2021 a week full of thought-provoking conferences and engaging events. We hope you will join other academics, scientists, and engineers in sharing the latest research in optical engineering and applications, nanotechnology, quantum science, organic photonics and astronomical instrumentations.

A home for your research.
Don’t delay in submitting an abstract. Presenting at Optics + Photonics will ensure your research gets shared and disseminated to an international audience. Although much in the world remains uncertain, the one constant is that your work is important, and SPIE is here to assist in bringing the community together to learn from one another and discuss the latest advancements in San Diego this August.
