Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

Introduction

The large number of submissions to and excellent attendance at the Ground-based and Airborne Telescopes V conference reflects continued strong interest in the astronomical and engineering communities. There were 214 papers submitted to this year’s conference, which included 30 oral sessions and two poster sessions.

Good progress was reported on many ongoing and planned programs. Excellent papers were presented on AKA, ALMA, APF, AST3, BLASTPol, CCAT, CGST, CHIME, CLST, CTA, DCT, DECam, DKIST, E-ELT, GLT, GMT, HET, KDUST, LAMOST, LBT, LMT, LSST, LT2, MSE, NST, OAJ, Pan-STARRS, PLANETS, SKA, SOFIA, Spider, SST, TAO, TESS, TMT, and WFT.

Papers were presented on many current optical-IR telescope projects that are finally funded and ready for construction. The Extremely Large Telescopes session was the most widely attended; almost at the level of the conference’s plenary sessions. There were several sessions of Airborne Telescopes, including SOFIA and balloon projects. Another topic that had several sessions was Telescopes and Arrays for Surveys, Time-domain and Transient Observations. Attendance was strong through the last session on Measurement and Control of Telescope Vibration.

The range of technical subjects covered in the papers is similar to previous conferences. Design of telescopes for extreme environments still is a hot topic for the conference. A new topic that hasn’t been covered in the past was telescopes to image orbiting objects. This will be of interest in the future for commercial and military applications.

The co-chairs would like to thank the SPIE symposium organizers, the GB&AT program committee members, the session chairs, the authors, and all the conference participants for making this year’s conference so successful.
