As we plan for an in-person meeting next year, we recognize that travel conditions are uncertain. SPIE remains committed to providing a forum for information sharing, collaboration, and advancing research that is vital to our community.

If we determine that we are unable to host an onsite meeting, we will host this event online as a Digital Forum. Please join your community and contribute to our shared effort to improve the global condition for everyone.
