Abstract
"The Future of ELTs" is an intriguing as well as daunting title. But this is not about telescopes. After all, what could top visions of telescopes ranging from a "mere" 20 meters, to 100 meters, to plastic 30-meter telescopes in space, to new telescopes for the Moon and even a "hyper-telescope" designed to fill the volcanic crater on La Palma? Instead, this is about an equally interesting subject: Advanced Telescope Builders of the Early 21st Century, which reflects on the gathering of unique individuals that Arne Ardeberg and the University of Lund have so graciously brought together at this workshop.
