The Optical Society of Southern California holds nine regular meetings usually on the second Wednesday of each month from October through June, as well as a few special events.  Most of our meetings and events are open to the public.  You can find event details and register for events by visiting our events calendar.  The events calendar also has some other events that may be of interest to OSSC members such as conferences and educational events.

Ideas for future meetings are welcomed by our Programs Chair.  We also have a page listing previous years' OSSC meetings.
