Proceedings of SPIE

The SPIE conference program is known for bringing together engineers and scientists at the top of their fields to present their latest research and network with peers. SPIE conferences result in over 350 proceedings annually, reports on state of the art and cutting-edge technology advancements, frequently long before they are captured in archival journals.
