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

This conference, the fifth in the series on Ground-based and Airborne Instrumentation for Astronomy, attracted a very rich programme of papers discussing all aspects of the design and delivery of complete instrument systems. The range of innovation in the instrument building community was particularly remarkable at this meeting. Instrument concepts matched to the ~1000m2 collecting area of the extremely large telescopes were discussed alongside highly scientifically focused instruments for telescopes with ~1m2 apertures. Meanwhile, the current large telescope observatories are considering their instrument suites in the light of future new developments. Survey instruments are becoming an enduring and significant theme at our meeting, whether designed for observing hundreds of galaxies, or hundreds of points on a radial velocity curve to reveal exo-planetary systems.

At this meeting, ~350 papers were presented, either as oral or poster contributions. Six invited reviews were requested on major existing facilities or planned new ones. The presentations were arranged into 10 sessions over the five days of the meeting. The major topics were:

  • Instrument Programmes at Major Observatories

  • New instruments and Upgrades to Existing Instruments

  • High Multiplex and Survey Instruments

  • High Spectral Resolution Instruments

  • High Spatial Resolution Instruments

  • Instruments for Extremely Large Telescopes

On behalf of the program committee, it is a pleasure to acknowledge the contribution of all participants in making this a busy and very productive meeting.
