SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing application tracks

Presentations on two focused topics: AI/ML and Net Zero

What is an application track?

Application tracks list presentations on a specific topic together within the program so that participants can easily locate presentations in their area of interest.


Authors: Add an application track to your submission and help your research get noticed

Application tracks aggregate presentations across Defense + Commercial Sensing, focusing on emerging technical and societal needs that require a multidisciplinary approach. Authors can select one relevant application track when submitting their abstract to give visibility to work being done that addresses these high-level challenges.

Two application tracks to explore


These papers showcase the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning to create and implement intelligent systems across multiple sectors, technologies, and applications.

In support of cross conference visibility and interest, the AI/ML application track will highlight AI problems and competitions organized within the respective conferences.
