ALT20►

6-11 September 2020, Arcachon, France

Dear Colleagues,
 
Due to the international impact of the Covid-19, we have decided to postpone the ALT20 conference. Since the future international situation over the next few months remains unknown, the next ALT conference is now planed to be held on September 2021, at the same venue, in the congress center of Arcachon, France. The new dates will be provided soon. The scientific program will remain the same as much as possible. Plenary and invited speakers will have the possibility to keep their slot, and update the information about their presentation.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience due to this postponement, we thank you for your understanding.
 
Take care and stay safe, and hope to see you in Arcachon on September 2021.

Sincerely Yours,
The Organizing Committee of ALT20

On behalf of the organizing committee of the 28th International Conference on Advanced Laser Technologies (ALT’20) which  will be held in the congress center  of Arcachon,  France, 6-11 September 2020, we kindly invite you to participate at this scientific event. Above scientific interests, being located in the south-west of France, next to the Atlantic Ocean, Arcachon site and the surrounding bay area provide the opportunity for the conference attendees to spent enjoyable time.
 
Following on from previous ALT editions, the ALT'20 conference aims to bring together presentations on fundamental as well as applicative aspects of innovative laser technologies along with their scientific and hi-tech industrial applications. Fundamental topics include laser-matter interaction, photonics, nonlinear optics, plasmonics, physical optics, etc. Applicative topics include material laser processing and writing of surface and bulk modification and functionalization, high- power and/or high repetition rate lasers, biomedical laser applications, optical materials, etc.
 
Together with these historical ALT topics, a highlight on high power lasers (inertial confinement fusion class laser facility) and applications will be addressed. The attendees will have the opportunity to visit the Laser Megajoule, one of worldwide largest energy delivering laser facility. Some invited presentations will also cover this topic, including the laser-plasma interaction and the laser induced solid-to-plasma transition, the latter bridging the usual ALT topics.
 
ALT'20 will be also an opened forum for discussions on technological bottlenecks, enabling concepts, original ideas, and networking.
