SPIE Optics + Photonics 2021 - Plan to join your colleagues in San Diego

Connect with your community.

Looking forward to a return to San Diego next August? We are too.
We are in the process of building the program for the 2021 conference. We hope you will join other academics, scientists, and engineers as amazing research in optical engineering and applications, nanotechnology, quantum science, organic photonics and astronomical instrumentations continues to be shared.

A home for your research.
As an author, please don’t hesitate to submit an abstract. Although much in the world remains uncertain, the one constant is that your work is important, and SPIE is here to assist in getting your research shared, whether that is in-person or through a digital forum. Continue to do the good work, prepare your abstract and by doing so you will guarantee that your research is ready to be shared in whichever platform is available.
