In addition to the scientific presentations, the conference had organized four short courses on recent topics in optical coating technology as an additional opportunity to learn and network. These courses were offered free of charge to all attendees and offered a great chance to learn about new research, cutting-edge technology, and novel applications of optical coatings. Furthermore, attendees had the added benefit of many networking opportunities provided by FOC, including poster sessions, the conference welcome reception and banquet, and social gatherings during common lunch and dinner breaks. These gatherings provided ample opportunities to communicate and share ideas with fellow researchers, leading to new perspectives and insights in various research areas.
