Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

07 - 11 June 2015
Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, Arlington, Virginia, USA

New developments in adaptive optics technology and its use in many application areas.

Optical systems, ophthalmology and microscopy, beam propagation, atmospheric correction and other technologies benefit from new developments in and novel applications of adaptive optics. AO investigates the commonality and possible synergies between the adaptive optics methods developed and used by various communities pursuing different applications. Topics include AO systems/component technologies, wavefront correction optics, control algorithms, and signal processing electronics used in AO implementations as well as limitations and novel applications.

NEW Interactive Presentation Format
The Imaging Congress is expanding its presentation modes to include a select number of interactive demonstrations. These featured displays can range from live software demonstrations to the showcasing of research prototypes (subsystems or devices) that form the core of the related research paper. Demonstration opportunities will provide authors increased visibility of their work at the Congress and the possibility to discuss hands-on details of their research with colleagues, providing more space for a fruitful exchange of ideas. If you would like your work to be considered for a demonstration, please select yes under “Interactive Presentation” in the submission mask of your paper and provide a short description (up to 100 words) of what attendees will be able to see at your demo.
Demos will be selected after the papers have been accepted as poster papers. Your interest in having a demo will neither affect whether your paper will be accepted. In the pilot year of this new presentation mode, selected authors will be allocated a small round table (42 inches high and 30 inches in diameter) in addition to space for an overview poster describing their work during one of the poster sessions. All equipment must be hand-carried to the venue by the authors at their expense and must be set up within the allocated poster session setup time of 2 hours.
