Photonics West to take place in March 2021

SPIE has rescheduled its 2021 Photonics West conference and exhibition. The event will take place 6-11 March 2021, in San Francisco's Moscone Center. The co-located SPIE AR | VR | MR event has been rescheduled for the same week.

The new timeframe ensures extra floor space across all conference events, and SPIE will be working with vendors and the facilities to implement the latest recommendations from health and government officials across all venues and events affiliated with Photonics West.

'SPIE knows that in-person conferences are critical opportunities to reconnect with colleagues, share research, and find new solutions,' said SPIE Senior Director of Technical Programs Marilyn Gorsuch. 'We are working to create the best Photonics West possible with all the exciting events the photonics community has come to expect from us.'

The call for papers deadline has been extended and potential presenters have until 26 August to submit an abstract for consideration by conference chairs.

Each year, SPIE Photonics West features more than 4,000 technical presentations, 1,200 exhibiting companies, 50 courses, an industry programme, and multiple special events. In addition, the symposium is introducing a new conference, highlighting photonics research and technologies addressing COVID-19.

Registration for 2021 SPIE Photonics West will open in November 2020.
