Automatic mailing distribution list of the ultrafast phenomena community

We would like to encourage you to join (free of charge) the automatic mailing distribution list of the ultrafast phenomena community. Its aim is to provide a forum of exchange of information to the ultrafast laser community worldwide. To this day, the list contains about 840 scientists from 38 countries.The email distribution list is used to:

- Advertise openings and positions.
- Advertise Schools, conferences and workshops.
- Raise technical questions, discuss solutions, etc.
- Raise scientific questions, etc.

If you are interested, please contact Jan van Beilen email. You will receive an email with details on how to subscribe to the list.
