    Invitation from Symposium Chairs

    Welcome to Optical Systems Design

    Optical instruments are addressing an ever-increasing number of industrial and research applications: imaging and vision, defense, space, telecommunications, transportation, industrial process control, laser fusion, etc. As end users are expecting more demanding performances, optical systems designers and manufacturers are faced with growing challenges.

    This symposium on Optical Systems Design in Madrid, Spain will be the eleventh in a series in Europe. It is intended to provide an interdisciplinary forum for technicians, engineers, researchers, and managers who are involved in instrumental optics at all levels: design, specification, production, and testing.

    Get face-to-face feedback from your colleagues in an interdisciplinary forum. The symposium represents an excellent opportunity to stay informed and further the debate about the latest (and future) developments in optical design and how strong digital transformation and connectivity drive these developments. There is no doubt that Madrid will be the perfect host for SPIE Europe Optical Systems Design 2021; it is our great pleasure to welcome you.
