The joint ASPE (American Society for Precision Engineering)/ASPEN (Asian Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology) Summer Topical Meeting on the Manufacture and Metrology of Freeform and Off-Axis Aspheric Surfaces was held at The Fairmont Orchid Hotel on the beautiful Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.  From volcanoes to snow-capped mountains to beaches and to rainforests the Big Island has something to offer everyone.

The ASPE/ASPEN joint Meeting is designed to focus industry, academic and governmental interest and expertise on the advancement of technologies essential to the manufacture of freeform and off-axis aspheric surfaces. The Meeting was held in conjunction with The Optical Society (OSA) Optical Fabrication and Testing (OF&T) Topical Meeting and Classical Optics Congress, held at the same location in the days preceding the joint ASPE/ASPEN Topical Meeting.

As well as a series of oral and poster paper presentations, the Meeting offered frequent breaks, lunch hours, a hospitality time during the afternoon poster session and a Lu’au on Thursday evening to give participants ample opportunities to encourage the free exchange of ideas, knowledge and accomplishments in a relaxing environment.

We enjoyed seeing you on the “Big Island” of Hawaii.
