8th Conference of the International Committee on Ultrahigh Intensity Lasers - Sep 9-14, 2018 - Lindau/Germany

The ICUIL 2018 Conference, the 8TH CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE ON ULTRAHIGH INTENSITY LASERS will again welcome high intensity laser enthusiasts from across the world, this time back in Europe.


ICUIL 2018 is again expected to showcase the latest on multilateral projects like ELI, XCELS and IZEST as well as other efforts across the world in the direction of ultra-intense lasers. Following the spirit of the ICUIL conferences, in particular the last meeting at Montebello, Canada, technical and scientific themes concerning ultra-intense lasers will be addressed: (i) ultra-intense laser design and performance including Nd:glass-based, Ti:sapphire, DPSSL and OPCPA and novel architectures, (ii) novel technologies for ultra-intense lasers, e.g compression components and strategies, modelling and fabrication, high damage -threshold and ultra-broadband laser components, pulse control, and diagnostics , and (iii) applications of ultra-intense lasers for laser acceleration, short-wavelength sources, attosecond sources, exploration of warm-dense matter, high-field physics and more. This conference will emphasize the many contributions from students and young scientists in this dynamic field of ultra-high intensity lasers.


The conference will take place at Hotel Bad Schachen in Lindau, Germany, from September 9th to 14th 2018. The hotel is located right on the shore of Lake Constance boasting a wonderful view of the lake, but also the panoramic backdrop of the Austrian and Swiss Alps.
