SPIE and the Optical Society of Korea (OSK) renewed a cooperative agreement between the two societies with a “memo of understanding” during the OSK 2012 summer meeting in August.

The agreement was signed by OSK President and SPIE member Tae-Hoon Yoon of Pusan National University and SPIE President Eustace Dereniak of University of Arizona.

The agreement covers benefits for their individual members as well as conference, course, and publication collaboration by the societies.

“We are very pleased to be able to continue our long and beneficial close relationship with the Optical Society of Korea,” Dereniak said.

“We look forward to continuing to work together in advancing optics and photonics technology to solve the world’s challenges in energy supply, communications systems, health care, and other important areas,” Dereniak said. 

SPIE leaders were also among speakers at the event. In two of four plenary talks, Dereniak spoke on "Snapshot imaging spectrometers," and SPIE Director James Grote (Air Force Research Lab) spoke on "Biotronics: biotechnology for electronic and photonic applications."

SPIE Past President Malgorzata Kujawinska (Warsaw University of Technology) spoke on "Parallel optomechatronics system for wafer-level testing of M(O)EMS," in the International Photonics Symposium. Grote also presented in the DNA Optoelectronics Workshop, on "Overview and prospect of DNA optoelectronics," and SPIE Director Seung-Han Park (Yonsei University) also participated in the summer meeting.
