Optical design remains a rapidly developing field due to the increased performance demands, improved software and computing platforms for modeling, better algorithms, and new fabrication technologies for better performance. The International Optical Design Conference (IODC), which occurs every four years, provides the most important meeting in optical design for engineers, scientists and designers to stay abreast of the changes in this field. Attendees from around the world in a breadth of optical design disciplines will be able to interact in both informal and formal settings.
Topics of special interest for IODC are illumination system fabrication, surface representation in lens design, desensitizing designs and reduction in cost, beam shaping, micro-optics, polarization, and computational imaging.
