Imaging and Applied Optics

13 - 17 July 2014
Sheraton Seattle Hotel, Seattle, Washington, USA

The frontiers in imaging and selected areas in applied optics will be examined at the Imaging and Applied Optics: Optics and Photonics Congress (OPC). This congress is composed of seven complementary meetings and is designed to present a comprehensive view of the latest developments in imaging and applied optical sciences.

Together, this Congress represents a forum in which the attendees are exposed to the forefront advances in imaging and applied optics and are able to hear discussion of the application of these technologies to important industrial, military and medical problems.    

Imaging and Applied Optics features the hot topic of wearable technology. See plenary speaker Bernard Kress, Optics Lead, Advanced Technology Team, Google Glass Project, Google [X], USA. Also see the OSA press release regarding recent advances in creating a 3-D experience for wearable technology.
