SPIE Optics + Photonics application tracks

Highlighting work in Sustainability and AI/ML

What is an application track?

Each application track is a topical area with broad-range interest that can be selected during the abstract submission process if relevant to your research. All presentations selected into the application track can be surfaced together using an application track filter in the program on the SPIE website.

Listing presentations together on a specific topic within the program helps participants more easily locate your presentation in their area of interest.

What are the benefits of application tracks?

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.
