Ultrafast Optics XII

Date So, 06.10.2019 - Fr, 11.10.2019
Location Bol, Island of Brač, Croatia
Program We are pleased to announce the Ultrafast Optics XII conference, the 12th conference in the series, October 6-11, 2019. In keeping with the long tradition of hosting UFO in special locations, we are delighted to invite you to Bol on the Island of Brač, Croatia.

We are building a stimulating program for recent advances in ultrafast optical technology. Key conference topics include:

• Generation of ultrashort optical pulses from lasers
• Parametric oscillators and amplifiers of ultrashort pulses
• Ultrahigh peak-power laser systems and related technologies
• High average power ultrafast lasers
• High harmonic and attosecond pulse generation technology and science
• Novel methods for shaping and measuring ultrashort pulses
• Few-cycle pulses, carrier-envelope phase control
• Coherent beam combining and pulse synthesis
• Ultrashort x-ray pulses; generation, characterization, and synchronization of XFELs
• Ultrafast laser applications that drive technology advancements and innovation

The abstract submission deadline will be TBD.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Bol, Croatia!
