Held in Rochester, NY, the hometown of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and our team at Applied Image, Frontiers in Optics (October 17-21, 2016) is a conference that brings together industry leaders and academic professionals to share the latest trends and innovations in optics. If you’re planning to attend, you’re likely already anticipating the valuable connections to be made. If you’re still unsure about attending, here are some reasons why you won’t want to miss this phenomenal event:

1. Celebrating 100 Years of OSA
The Optical Society has led innovation for optical science and engineering – and they aren’t planning on stopping any time soon. Come celebrate OSA’s milestone 100th birthday in the city where it all started. The conference will feature special events related to the centennial celebration, such as the OSA 100 Year BASH and the Photonics Clambake!

2. Rochester Is a Major Optics Hub

Frontiers in Optics allows optics professionals to connect, exchange ideas, and find talent in OSA’s birthplace. Rochester is home to many well-known universities with optical manufacturing and research programs, making it a great source of new talent. It is also the headquarters for associations such as New York Photonics, whose members are known worldwide as leaders in their field of expertise. Lastly, there are dozens of optics and photonic imaging companies, spanning all types of disciplines that call Rochester home. Come out and meet them!

3. Co-meeting with the American Physical Society’s Division of Laser Science

Science is especially intriguing when different disciplines collaborate.
