SPIE DSS returns to Baltimore (USA) 20-24 April 2015

01 October 2014

SPIE DSS is returning to the Baltimore Convention Center (USA) 20-24 April 2015, with nearly 60 conferences on commercial and industrial sensing, laser technologies, military medicine and imaging, and other optical and photonics technologies for the defense and sensing communities.

Abstracts are being accepted through 6 October.

Two symposia, SPIE Sensing Technology + Applications (STA) and SPIE Defense + Security, bring together more than 6000 experts in wireless sensors and devices, fiber optic sensors, imaging, robotics, terahertz systems, pattern analysis, and other optical technologies for defense, security, industry, health, and the environment.

A 450-company exhibition will be held Tuesday through Thursday during the week, and a new best paper award will be presented in memory of Fumio Okano at the 3D Imaging, Visualization, and Display conference under STA.

Okano, a pioneer of 3D displays who died in 2013, was a longtime chair at the conference. SPIE member Jun Arai of NHK paid tribute to Okano’s technical legacy at the 2014 conference. See his open-access paper in the SPIE Digital Library.

NHK, the Japan Broadcasting Corp., is funding the ‘Dr. Fumio Okano Best 3D Paper Prize.’

Several other awards will be presented for best papers at SPIE DSS 2015.

Wolfgang Schade of Clausthal University of Technology and Fraunhofer Heinrich Heinz Institute (Germany) is symposium chair for STA, which debuted in Baltimore in May. Ming C. Wu of University of California, Berkeley will serve as co-chair.

Nils R. Sandell Jr., director of the Strategic Technology Office at the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is chair of SPIE Defense + Security, and David A. Logan of BAE Systems is co-chair.
