Mission Statement

ASAP will fully participate in contributing towards scientific, engineering, and educational plans for the development over the short term (1-3 yr), medium term (3-10 yr), and long term future of AO from the year 2021.

Our Principles

The unique multi-disciplinary, hands-on, ever-evolving paradigm of AO science and education, and the AO community which drives the science, has been and should remain a global asset. It is invaluable in practice and example.

We (ASAP), AO users, many generations of alumni, and the wider community must view the tragic event of December 1st, 2020 as an opportunity to reimagine AO.
