SPIE Security + Defence Digital Forum 2020

Plan to participate in SPIE Security + Defence Digital Forum

SPIE Security + Defence is transitioning to a FREE Digital Forum to be held 21 - 25 September.  The event remains the leading international conference and exhibition for engineers, scientists, programme managers and policy makers for the latest developments in sensing, data and signal analysis, optronics, quantum science, optical technologies, and funding programmes. 

Co-located with:
SPIE Space, Satellites + Sustainability (S3) and SPIE Remote Sensing

Given the current global health situation, SPIE is committed to adhering to best practices to protect the health of our constituents. With the new online format you will still be able to present your paper and connect with your community.
