Most conferences are accepting post-deadline submissions until 8 January 2024. New submissions are considered as space becomes available. View the conference you want to participate in to find out if it is accepting post-deadline submissions.

Why present and publish your work as part of Advanced Lithography + Patterning?

Here's how submitting an abstract puts a spotlight on your work:

  • Your participation in the conference gains you international visibility
  • Your research becomes a part of the world's permanent scientific record
  • Your work will be indexed in all relevant scientific databases*

Make sure that your research gets timely publication in the SPIE Digital Library.

*SPIE partners with relevant scientific databases to ensure visibility for your research, including Astrophysical Data System (ADS), Ei Compendex, CrossRef, Google Scholar, Inspec, Scopus, and Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index.
