Coronavirus and Traveling to Strasbourg, France
SPIE has been closely monitoring the global health and transportation situation related to COVID-19 since the outbreak first began in late 2019. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and local government authorities.
Today the French government announced that all events over 1000 attendees will be banned until further notice. Following this order,
SPIE Photonics Europe is officially postponed.
The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance to us and our hearts go out to those being affected by the current outbreak.
SPIE is actively working with our event leadership, volunteers, and the hosting facility to organize an event at a future date and will be reaching out to all authors, exhibitors, and registered attendees with more info very soon.
