Why present and publish your work as part of SPIE Medical Imaging?

Here's how submitting an abstract puts a spotlight on your work:

  • Your participation in the conference gains you international visibility
  • Your research becomes a part of the world's permanent scientific record
  • Your work will be indexed in all relevant scientific databases*

Make sure that your research gets timely publication in the SPIE Digital Library.

*SPIE partners with relevant scientific databases to ensure visibility for your research, including Astrophysical Data System (ADS), Ei Compendex, CrossRef, Google Scholar, Inspec, Scopus, and Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

It is important to start preparation of your presentation and manuscript early. Please be sure to carefully review the important dates and deadlines and read emails that you receive from SPIE.
