About SPIE
SPIE is an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach to the science and application of light.

SPIE serves the interests of its Members and the broader scientific and technical community who utilize light in their research and application solutions. SPIE acts as a catalyst for collaboration among technical disciplines, for information exchange, continuing education, publishing opportunities, patent precedent, and career and professional growth.

To facilitate these efforts, SPIE and SPIE Europe are key organizers and sponsors of major conferences and educational programs around the world. SPIE hosts 26 annual events in North America, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific annually, providing publishing, speaking, and learning opportunities on emerging technologies.

In support of students, the Society contributes more than $1M annually in scholarships, grants, and financial support. With 98 Student Chapters around the world, SPIE is expanding opportunities for students to develop professional skills and utilize career opportunities, supporting the next generation of scientists and engineers.

Keeping researchers informed, SPIE publishes six scholarly journals and a variety of print media publications. The SPIE Digital Library also publishes the latest research-close to 20,000 proceedings papers each year.

Membership includes a Fellows Program, with close to 500 individual Society Fellows inducted to date from a wide range of technical disciplines and application areas. This recognition program honors professional contributions of Members. An Award Program also serves to recognize individuals throughout the scientific community regardless of Membership status and to bring their achievements to light.

SPIE continues to serve its core optics and photonics community as an advocate as well as serving its broader scientific and technical communities, and society at large.

The SPIE international office is located in Bellingham, Washington and the SPIE Europe office is located in Cardiff, Wales.
