Plan to Participate

We invite you to participate in SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2020 (DCS), the leading meeting for scientists, researchers and engineers from industry, military, government agencies, and academia throughout the world. DCS continues with 44+ years as the leading conference on imaging, sensing, and photonic technologies used for defense and security applications, as well as fast-emerging innovations for health care, industry, and environmental applications.

In 2020, DCS travels to beautiful Anaheim, California. Southern California is not only a long-time hub of aerospace and technology, but also the birthplace of SPIE. With proximity to family attractions and warm, sunny weather, Anaheim is a great destination. The Anaheim Convention Center was recently renovated and is one of the most technically advanced convention centers in the United States.

Along with sharing your latest research, you will have a chance to see the latest products from leading companies on the exhibition floor, and network with leaders in the sensing and imaging industry. We urge your participation by submitting your abstract and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We look forward to a closer and stronger partnership with you during DCS 2020. Plan to join us in Anaheim!
