The International Optical Design Conference (IODC) occurs every 4 years and provides the opportunity for attendees from around the world to interact in a structured and yet informal format. The IODC will cover a wide range of applications and developments throughout the industry, and the conference is conveniently co-located with three other timely topical meetings. A design problem will be proposed in advance of the meeting so that attendee solutions can be presented during one of the sessions (see below for more information).

During the past few years, many areas of optical design have seen rapid development driven by a combination of increased demands on system performance, significant advances in both computing power and design software, and by new manufacturing technologies that offer entirely new engineering options. With such a flourish of activity occurring throughout the optics industry, it becomes imperative for designers, engineers, and scientists to keep up to date with the latest state of the art.

Our next meeting with be 27 June – 1 July 2021 at the in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.
