What is Applied Industrial Optics?

By Gary Miller, US Naval Research Laboratory, USA | Posted: 5 May 2016

Applied Industrial Optics (AIO) is a unique conference where industrial professionals are asked to speak about their work, which typically is never published, unless as a patent. While many industrial societies have conferences that approach this format, the Optics and Photonics industry typically only has trade shows, such as CLEO and Photonics West. For industrial participants, these events are focused on the exhibition floor and the technical program is ancillary. AIO, this 25 - 28 July 2016 in Heidelberg, Germany as part of the Imaging and Applied Optics Congress, shifts that paradigm focusing instead on the technical program.
