2010 SPIE Event in San Francisco
June 3, 2009

The invitation to submit abstracts for next year’s SPIE Photonics West symposium has gone out and exhibition space is booking fast, as the international photonics community prepares for the January 2010 event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

Next year will be the inaugural year in San Francisco for Photonics West, after 15 years in San Jose and having grown to exceed available conference and exhibition space. Nearly 18,000 people attended the 2009 symposium, and the number is expected to increase in 2010.

The meeting is also the site of top international photonics conferences. Abstracts are being accepted through July 13th. See the event website for more information.

The 2009 Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation, cosponsored by SPIE and Laurin Publishing, will be awarded at Photonics West. The awards were introduced in 2008 to recognize the best in innovative technology in optics and photonics. A panel of independent expert judges will select the winners. Applications are being accepted through September 22nd. More information is available at Photonics Prism Awards online.

Photonics West 2010 also will host celebrations, displays, and featured speakers marking the 50th anniversary of the first demonstration of a working laser and recognizing the importance of laser technology. The events in San Francisco will be part of SPIE’s “Advancing the Laser” tribute ongoing through the May 2010 anniversary date. Laser Focus World magazine also is a sponsor with SPIE of several laser tribute events and activities.
