The Australian Optical Society 


 


The Australian Conference on 

Optical Fibre Technology


 

The Australian Optical Society runs, typically together with Engineers Australia, the Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (ACOFT). This is the second longest running photonics conference (after ECOC). It generally now collocates with other related conferences.

Next ACOFT

The next ACOFT will be in Perth in December 2018, as part of the AIP Congress

Organisation

Each ACOFT conference has its own organising committees. The ACOFT conference series is governed by a Steering Committee. This committee approves proposals for ACOFT and determines the guidelines for running ACOFT. The ACOFT Steering Committee is chaired by the AOS President, who is the person to contact.

History

An article in AOS News (Vol. 22, No. 2, pp. 9-13, 2008) (link to come) presents the history of the first 33 years. Some additional historical information is included in an article published in AOS News (Vol. 27, No.4)

The following table lists all the conferences in the ACOFT series with links to websites and proceedings where available:
