Chairs & Committee Member Information

SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation

The responsibilities of being Conference Chair, Program Committee member, or Session Chair are crucial to the success of SPIE events, and you have all worked hard to build a wonderful program. THANK YOU for volunteering your time and dedication.

All authors, presenters, and attendees are being notified of the new Digital Forum format that will enable the dissemination of research and results via the SPIE Digital Library. Attendees will be able to watch and listen to conference presentations and interact via online discussion with presenters.

We ask you to use your connections and influence to spread the word about this event. Also, during the week of the event, please take an active role, as you would during an in-person conference, to facilitate conversation and review comments. 

If you have any questions or concerns at any point along the way, please don't hesitate to contact your Conference Program Coordinator.
