Technical Affairs Council

The Technical Affairs Council coordinates the technical aspects of all Society programs and provides leadership in developing emerging photonics research and applications areas.  This includes annually compiling a list of critical emerging photonic research & application areas, assessing Society coverage of these topics, identifing additional coverage opportunities where appropriate, and identifing leaders, plans and timelines for actions.

The Vice President  of Technical Affairs chairs the Council and appoints an 8-12 member committee, including representatives of the Conference, Publication, and Membership areas.
