Abstract : A combination of materials research, device design and fabrication, algorithm/architecture development, and applications systems study forms the body of optical computing research. This topical meeting is designed to bring together researchers from these widely different disciplines. The main aim of the meeting was not only to report on the current state of the art in optical computing, but to look into possible future directions that are likely to emerge from an interaction between new devices, novel architectures, and nontraditional applications for optical computing. Keywords: Reports; Abstracts; Optical processing; Image processing; Holograms; Pattern recognition.
