For over twenty years, the International Conference on Optical Fibre Sensors (OFS) has provided a vibrant forum for reporting the latest advances in fibre-optic and photonic sensing technologies and related devices, as well as fostered the exchange of knowledge and ideas within the research and industrial communities. The field continues to provide a rich tapestry of optical technologies and applications. The conference series is held every 18 months, in rotation between North America, Europe and Asia.
The nineteenth OFS conference will be held April 14-18, 2008 in Perth, Western Australia, on the western seaboard of the Australian continent, which shares the Western Standard Time zone in common with much of Asia. The conference will be held in the nearby port city of Fremantle, in the village atmosphere of the boat harbour entertainment district and close to Perth's famous beaches.
The conference will offer invited and contributed paper presentations in oral and poster sessions, as well as a special workshop, commercial trade exhibition, and social and cultural events.

Perth's relaxed and outdoor lifestyle should prove an ideal setting for a stimulating and enjoyable meeting - see you Down Under in 2008!
