About OPTIMESS
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The OPTIMESS conferences are supported by the Research Foundation – Flanders (http://www.fwo.be) and by the scientific research community OPTIMESS (http://optimess.vub.ac.be), which gathers a number of Flemish and international research groups, all active in the field of optical measurement techniques or their application. Currently, the members of the research community are:
