Host Organisation

ANZCOP is hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Optical Society(ANZOS), which is a non-profit organisation for the advancement of optics in Australia and New Zealand. The society was formed in 1983 for this purpose. The society is not a professional body and may include anyone contributing to or interested in optics in the widest sense.

ANZOS was established:

  • To provide a forum for persons involved in or in any way interested in optics
  • To strengthen the teaching of optics in Australia
  • To promote research in and other activities in optics in all its diversity
  • To foster closer collaboration in optics both nationally and internationally.
In January 2020 the Council of the then-titled Australian Optical Society (AOS) changed the “trading name” of the Society to the Australian and New Zealand Optical Society (ANZOS).
