SPIE Security + Defence Digital Forum - we thank you for participating

SPIE Security + Defence Digital Forum 2020

Thank you for joining your colleagues online.
We know we all missed attending the in-person conference in Edinburgh, but thanks to your enthusiastic participation over 1,880 academics, engineers, scientists, programme managers and policy makers were able to connect online during the Digital Forum. Amazing research in sensing, data and signal analysis, optronics, quantum science, and optical technologies was shared, products were demonstrated, and networking discussions had - thanks to your continued commitment to advancing science.

Remember, if you registered for the Digital Forum, you now have ongoing access to the conference content on the SPIE Digital Library. You can continue to review video presentations for both authors and exhibitors, posters, Plenary sessions, and manuscripts. Just sign in to your SPIE account to start accessing program content.

Here's hoping we are all back in-person next year. 
Until then, stay safe and continue the good work.
