Abstract

The third edition of the International Conference on Adaptive Optics systems for extremely large telescopes took place in Florence on May 2013. These systems make it possible to obtain astronomical images with ground-based telescopes of similar, or in some cases even higher, spatial resolution than that achieved by space-borne telescopes in orbit beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. Among the highlights of the Conference: discussion on the status of the systems to be mounted on next-generation telescopes with diameters greater than 30-40 meters.
