Announcement of New Venue and Dates  

We are excited to announce that the Laser Congress and Exhibition is relocating to one of Europe’s premier meeting destinations.

The meeting will now take place from 11 – 15 December 2022 at the state-of-the-art Barcelona International Convention Centre in beautiful Barcelona, Spain.

The meeting was to have been presented in October in Prague, Czechia. However, Prague was selected by the European Union to host the EU Presidency. This forced our conference venue — and all other potential venues in Prague, to cancel existing commitments to accommodate the EU.

The paper submission website will open in early June. The submission deadline is 09 August.

The new, confirmed location is one of the top business and tourist destinations in Europe, and is easily accessible for international travelers. While we encourage you to participate in person, we also remain firmly committed to virtual presentation options. If you are unable to travel, either for convenience or preference, you can be confident that your accepted paper will be presented before its intended audience this year.

Topical Meetings

The congress is comprised of three topical meetings that provide a comprehensive view of the latest advances in lasers and laser applications:

  • Advanced Solid State Lasers Conference
    About the Meeting
    Highlights new sources, advanced technologies, components and system design to extend the operation and application of solid-state lasers.
  • Applications of Lasers for Sensing and Free Space Communications
    About the Meeting
    Presents the latest developments in laser-based sensing and free space laser communication.
  • Laser Applications Conference
    About the Meeting
    Focuses on two main topic areas — materials processing and applications for high power lasers.
Learning Objectives
  • Learn about advances in laser beam combining including coherent beam combining and the powers achievable through these processes.
  • Hear about record performance in the area of high power fiber lasers and their application to welding, cutting, laser shock peening, other materials modification applications, laser induced damage and directed energy applications.
  • Explore advances in remote sensing including vibrometry, atmospheric composition determination, wind sensing and remote high precision mapping.
  • Hear about achievements in National facilities of ultra-high intensities and their application to forefront scientific studies of ultra-intense radiation/materials interactions.

Mark your calendar to participate in this premier annual event for laser professionals.
