SPIE Photonics Europe application tracks

Presentations on three focused topics: AI/ML, Sustainability, and EU-funded research

What is an application track?

An application track is a grouping of presentations on a topic of widespread interest across different conferences. During abstract submission, the submitting author should select an application track if it is relevant to their research.

When the programme is published online, presentations within each application track can be filtered so they display together in a single view.

Attendees gather to discuss specific topical research found in the application track listing online

What are the benefits of application tracks?

Application tracks enable attendees to group and explore presentations in the conference programmes to more easily plan their event schedule around the topic of interest. Application track filters span across all conferences at an SPIE event. The ability to group presentations together across the entire event in this way helps participants more easily locate a presentation in their area of interest and has the reciprocal benefit of helping authors' presentations be more easily found.

Three applications tracks to explore


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


Papers that highlight the use of optics and photonics for renewable energy, natural resource management, sustainable manufacturing, and greenhouse gas mitigation in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

EU-funded research programmes

Papers presenting research supported by current EU-funded programmes, initiatives, and innovation projects.
