Template for the proceedings

The use of adaptive optics is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of applications. From the correction of effects of the Earth’s turbulent atmosphere these class of technologies have started to make an head-way in other fields. The areas of applications range from the heavy metallurgic industry (use of industrial laser for cutting and welding for example), to medical applications to telecommunications. 

Few years ago there was a recognition of this growing field and was felt within the community that a dedicated workshop would offer the ideal arena for the exchange of experiences and ideas among the growing number of practitioners of the field and the users community.In this framework the first international conference was organized in the summer of 1997 Shatura, Russia. Two years later the community reconvened in Durham, UK. The next meeting will be hosted in Albuquerque, NM (USA) in July 2001.

The meeting will be hosted in the historical 'La Posada de Albuquerque' .

A number of rooms have been reserved at a discounted price (room prices) at the conference hotel. However, several hotels with different price ranges are available in the area. Please send any inquiries to Ms. Katy Perry ( regarding accommodations and other logistic issues. 

There is a fee for attendees of 275 US dollars. 

A conference on related topics will be held the following week in San Diego, CA as part of the SPIE’s 46th annual symposium. More information on this conference can be found at spie_conference.
