DEPS Laser Conferences to Co-locate with SPIE DSS in Baltimore Next May

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

SPIE DSS, with its two technical symposia and the 500-company DSS Expo, will be joined in 2014 by conferences from several co-locating events, including the Advanced High Power Laser Conferences organized by the Directed Energy Professional Society (DEPS). SPIE DSS is sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and will run 5-9 May in the Baltimore Convention Center.

Penn State’s Electro-Optics Alliance (EOA) will hold its annual meeting during SPIE DSS. The MIRTHE (Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment) NSF Engineering Research Center, located at Princeton University and partner universities, and the Maryland technology transfer organization TEDCO are also planning co-located activities.

The 2,200-paper SPIE DSS technical program is organized into symposia on Defense + Security, with 32 conferences, and on Sensing Technology + Applications, with 27 conferences. Topics range across infrared, laser, spectroscopic, and other technologies for displays, imaging, cyber sensing, food safety, energy harvesting, oil and gas exploration, and more.

The DEPS conference program is a strong complement to the SPIE DSS program, said SPIE Senior Director Andrew Brown.

“Co-locating with the DEPS conferences and other events enhances an already cost-effective opportunity for government scientists, engineers, and project managers in the region to access mission-critical information and to meet efficiently with suppliers to develop solutions to their problems,” Brown said. “Likewise we are creating a unique opportunity for industry to showcase their newest products and capabilities to a targeted audience. It's a win-win situation that is valued by government and industry participants.”

A statement by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget earlier this year acknowledged the need for conference and other travel, noting that for some employees, conferences may the most efficient and cost-effective means for meeting objectives and ensuring advancements.

“Given new budget realities, being in Baltimore helps leadership and attendees by greatly reducing travel costs,” said Michael Eismann, Senior Scientist for Electro-Optical and Infrared Sensors at the Sensors Directorate of the Air Force Research Lab and Defense + Security conference chair.

SPIE is very sensitive to the need for fiscal responsibility, and providing value to our attendees and exhibitors, Brown said. “SPIE DSS was relocated to Baltimore a few years ago specifically in response to government concerns regarding efficiency, and to support the needs of the optics and photonics community in this region. We are very pleased to be able to continue to add to that value through co-locating with DEPS and other related organizations. And expanding the scope of this meeting to include the broader sensing community is yet another way we are adding to the value of the event .”

About SPIE

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 235,000 constituents from approximately 155 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional networking, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2012.
