Paper Abstract

Barry and I are going to co-moderate and the first question posed to the panel is where do we go from here. Whether this is the first conference of its kind or not we're not entirely sure. There have been other conferences on education in this field in the past but this one certainly was a very successful one. I think everyone will agree to that when we showed up early the other morning and had a pretty good attendance and a lot of interest - that set the tone for the past few days and I heard a lot of favorable discussion. We've talked about curriculum, we've talked about training for the real world, academia-industry interaction, the critical issues facing optics education, so we've covered a lot of ground. It might be a good idea to let each one of our panel members take two or three minutes to give their views and then we will come back and address some of the very specific issues. Duncan, since you made the mistake of sitting on this side, why don't you go first.
