    Imaging, Sensors, and Applications Research. SPIE Conferences and Expos to Show Your Work

    Imaging, Sensors, and Applications Research. SPIE Conferences and Expos to Show Your Work

    SPIE has organized conferences about electronic imaging, imaging processing, optical sensors, and new applications for decades, ensuring you have a productive and insightful experience at any SPIE event such as those listed below. We invite you to meet your peers, expand your connections, present your work, and discover new ideas in fields ranging from 3D displays and augmented reality, to video processing, compression, and communication, to multi-spectral and hyperspectral imaging.

    Presenting at an SPIE conference provides excellent opportunities to build visibility for your research and develop valuable connections. Plus your work will be published in the SPIE Digital Library and may be fast-tracked to one of the SPIE journals devoted to this field, including Journal of Electronic Imaging, Journal of Applied Remote Sensing, Journal of Medical Imaging, and Neurophotonics.

    Please note that SPIE no longer co-hosts the Electronic Imaging symposium.  The new site of the Electronic Imaging Symposium is: This link takes you away from the SPIE site.

    SPIE continues to support the electronic imaging community via many relevant conferences pertaining to electronic imaging, image processing, visualization, and applications as you can see below:

    SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing - the best place to start
    Anaheim, California, United States 
    9 - 13 April 2017
    SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing, the most important technical conferences and exhibition for optics and photonics technology for imaging, sensing and vision content for applications in defense, security, machine vision, health, food safety and the environment. Specific conferences for electronic imaging include: millimeter-wave imaging, infrared imaging, head- and helmet-mounted displays, 3D imaging, visualization, three-dimensional and stereoscopic display, image compression, biometrics, and sensing for autonomous vehicles.

    Other conferences you may find of interest (in chronological order).
