As we plan for an in-person meeting in 2021, we recognize that travel conditions are uncertain. SPIE remains committed to providing a forum for information sharing, collaboration, and advancing research that is vital to our community.

If we determine that we are unable to host an onsite meeting, we will host this event online as a Digital Forum. Look for more information when registration opens in early January. Please join your community and contribute to our shared effort to improve the global condition for everyone.
