Paper Abstract

It is my pleasure to welcome you to this conference on High Speed Photography, Video-graphy, and Photonics just one year almost to the day since we welcomed a large audience of delegates and attendees to the 15th International Congress on High Speed Photography and Photonics. The size and scope of that meeting clearly indicated the continuing importance and strength of this field. It is, perhaps, a more exciting and growing field today than at any time in the past. What other field can claim to cover fifteen to twenty orders of magnitude as all in a day's work?: Certainly those of you here are doing just that as you use the technology to record slowly changing events and play them back at much higher speeds to study the changes in the phenomena being observed and also to investigate the phenomena and events in the picosecond and even femtosecond regimes.
