About Us


Established in 2004, the Advanced Imaging Conference, Inc is a non-profit California organization operated by a team of astro-photography enthusiasts. The all-volunteer, non-compensated Board of Directors is also assisted by a talented staff that helps make each conference possible. AIC's intent is to nurture, gather and disseminate information about the production of high-quality astrophotographic images; to enlarge the size of the global astrophotography community; improve the ability for astrophotographers to make scientific contributions and increase the general public's awareness and appreciation of non-professionally produced astrophotographic pictures.
