This special issue of Applied Optics will solicit papers presented in the Optical Design and Testing subconference of OPTIC 2013 (Optics and Photonics of Taiwan International Conference). OPTIC 2013 is the annual meeting for Taiwan's optics and photonics community, and will be held in the National Central University, 5-7 December 2013. The last conference attracted more than 1,000 contributed papers and around 2,000 participants, and provided a forum for disseminating the science and technology of optics and photonics developed by research groups from universities and research institutes across the globe. While meeting participants are particularly encouraged to submit their work, the special issue is open to all contributions in this area.
