Polarization Conference at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing, April 17-21

The next (east coast) SPIE Polarization conference, Polarization: Measurement, Analysis, and Remote Sensing XII (SI102) is returning to the great venue at the Baltimore Convention Center, next April 17 - 21, 2016 as part of the renamed SPIE DCS 2016.  The DSS event is now called SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing (DCS) in order to be more inclusive of the growing commercial application areas.Our conference is part of the Commercial + Scientific Sensing and Imaging, Imaging and Sensing Program Track and holds promise to be one of the best polarization conferences yet.  The venue offers proximity to federal customers and prime contractors alike, and the exhibition will be bigger than ever.   More information on the conference can be found at the SPIE / DCS web site http://spie.org/DCS.

The deadline for submitting your abstracts to the conference is 5October 2015. We are looking for interesting papers across the spectrum of polarization devices, simulation and modeling, instruments, mathematics, signatures and more.  The links to the Call for Papers and the abstract submission sites are given below.  The link to submit an abstract is also just below the conference title on the Call web page.  For speakers who need to seek approval from their organization to participate, please feel free to share our 'Benefits of attending' page here: http://spie.org/x90758.xml.

On a personal note, Polaris Sensor Technologies will be exhibiting again at DSS and we hope you'll stop by and see us.  We've got some exciting things to show you!

A few more instructions are provided following the links below so please take a look.  Please get your papers in, and pass this along to colleagues who might also be interested.  We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!
