SPIE Optics + Photonics 2020 Digital Forum Announced

Welcome to the Optics + Photonics 2020 Digital Forum

Announcing SPIE Optics + Photonics 2020 Digital Forum
This meeting remains the way in which academics, scientists, and engineers share research in optical engineering and applications, nanotechnology, quantum science, and organic photonics, only now in an online format.

While many of us look forward to this annual meeting in San Diego, following public health guidance and our focus on your wellbeing, SPIE is cancelling our in-person Optics + Photonics event and transforming it into a no-charge Digital Forum that will run 24-28 August 2020. This will include live plenary presentations, on-demand technical talks, and opportunities to connect virtually.

We will be reaching out to all authors, exhibitors, and registered attendees in early June with more information. Meanwhile, we look forward to offering you a way to continue to connect with your community and advance your research.

To be sure you receive the latest information
