Student & Early Career Professional Development & Networking Lunch and Learn
Tuesday, 26 June; 12:30-14:00
Apply today to attend the OSA Professional Development and Networking Lunch & Learn program at the Imaging and Applied Optics Congress. This program will provide a unique opportunity for students and early career professionals, who are close to finishing or who have recently finished their doctorate degree, to interact with experienced researchers. Key industry and academic leaders in the community will be matched for each student based on the student's preference or similarity of research interests. Students will have an opportunity to discuss their ongoing research and career plans with their mentor, while mentors will share their professional journey and provide useful tips to those who attend. Lunch will be provided.
Applications will be reviewed and attendees selected and matched with mentors two weeks prior to the meeting.
This Workshop is complimentary for OSA Members and space is limited. Not all who apply will be able to attend due to space limitations and priority will be given to those who have most recently or are close to graduation.
50th Anniversary of Introduction to Fourier Optics by Joseph Goodman
Tuesday, 26 June; 13:30-19:30
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publishing of Introduction to Fourier Optics
by Joseph Goodman, a book that has fundamental influence in the field of optical imaging. To commemorate this anniversary a special series of talks will be presented covering Fourier optics in the classroom to the evolvement of the field.
Join the Image Sensing and Pattern Recognition Technical Group for a small reception immediately following the conclusion of the program.
- Joseph W. Goodman, Stanford University, USA, Origins and Evolution of Introduction to Fourier Optics
- James Fienup, University of Rochester, USA, ABCD Matrix Analysis for Fourier-Optics Imaging
- Raymond Kostuk, University of Arizona, USA, A review of the wonderful discussion of Holography by Professor Goodman in his book: The Introduction to Fourier Optics.
- James Leger, University of Minnesota Twin Cities, USA, What’s the Problem? Insight and Inspiration Derived from Solving the Exercises in J. Goodman’s Classic Book Introduction to Fourier Optics
- Masud Mansuripur, University of Arizona, USA, Fourier Optics in the Classroom
- Demetri Psaltis, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland, The Transition of Fourier Optics Towards Computational Imaging and Digital Holography
- William T. Rhodes, Florida Atlantic University, USA, Teaching Fourier Optics: What I do Differently after 50 Years
- Bahaa Saleh, University of Central Florida, USA
Reception Hosted By
Tuesday, 26 June 2018, 19:00 – 21:00
You are invited to join the OSA Display Technology Technical Group for Illumicon II, an exclusive members-only event. Building on the declarations established at the inaugural Illumicon, which was convened in 2016, attendees will come together to discuss and debate emerging trends, technologies and opportunities in advanced 3D displays. Our discussions will also seek input on how the Display Technology Technical Group can further engage the 3D community in the years ahead. Illumicon II attendees will converge over drinks and appetizers at the confidential location. Entrance will be granted to those able to provide the secret Illumicon II event password. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the event location and password.
Tour of Laser Propagation Facilities at Kennedy Space Center
Thursday, 28 June (13:00-18:00) and Friday (07:00-12:00)
Additional Fee: $25 per person.
*Fee includes only transportation. Transportation
will leave from the conference hotel and return to the Orlando International Airport and the conference hotel.
During this tour at Kennedy Space Center (KSC), you will see various facilities used for outside field experiments such as laser propagation measurements. The tour will include UCF’s Townes Institute Science and Technology Experimentation Facility (TISTEF), the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF), and Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). TISTEF is a site for experiments that require deployment in a fielded setting and consists of a 1 km grass range equipped with atmospheric monitoring instruments and multiple scintillometers as well as capabilities for optical tracking and remote sensing. From this site, slant path measurements can be made over the 13 km path to the top of the VAB. The 5 km long SLF is ideal for longer path measurements because of its homogeneity and flatness (earth’s curvature has been removed). This tour is possible because of the pcAOP committee and University of Central Florida.
You must add this additional item ($25 per person) during your online registration. Registration for this event will close by 8 June to ensure time to secure security clearances. Attendees that are not US citizens will received a security form to complete a few days after registration and it must be completed and returned by 8 June.
