6-11 September 2020, Arcachon, France

Due to the coronavirus, some international conferences are currently postponed. Since the ALT20 conference is planed to take place in 6 months (6-11 September), it is still held. Participants are thus encouraged to register. However, due to this particular context, in case the conference will not take place in September, the registered participants will be reimbursed on simple request. In order to facilitate reimbursements, a payment of registration fees by credit card is mandatory. Further information will be provided in roughly 1 month when the situation will have evolved.

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.
