The submission must be done directly from the corresponding author's SPIE account. The article must be uploaded using the link Submit Your Full Paper and the SPIE Copyright Transfer Form should be attached. Further information about the format and procedures may be found in the "Format Your Manuscript and Sample Templates" link.
SPIE requests that manuscripts be at least six pages in length, single column, however, a five-page manuscript will be acceptable provided it contains all elements of a full-length technical manuscript (abstract, intro, conclusion, references, etc.). Only articles written in English will be accepted, any other language will be automatically rejected.
This year it is not necessary to submit an extended abstract.
