    New SPIE Digital Optical Technologies conference

    Munich, Germany

    Thank you for attending SPIE Digital Optical Technologies 2017, a conference focused on the components, systems design, and applications of emerging digital optical technologies in all social, academic, medical, and industrial areas. 

    The conference reflects trends in recent technologies such as 3D sensors, immersive multimedia, novel displays, light sources and imaging systems. Digital optical technologies include optics designed by digital means, fabricated by digital means, with functionalities enhanced or altered by digital techniques (computational optics or dynamic optics).
