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 program is published online, presentations within each application track can be filtered so they display together in a single view.
Application tracks enable attendees to group and explore presentations in the conference programs 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.
