International Conference on Ultrafast Phenomena
Topical Meeting and Tabletop Exhibit
Connect with the most accomplished international scientists,researchers,
engineers and business leaders as they shape the future of optics, photonics
and laser science.
The 2008 Ultrafast Phenomena Conference will be the sixteenth in a series
advances in research on ultrafast science and technology. This meeting
widely recognized as the major international forum for the discussion
work in this rapidly moving field.
The 2008 conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group sharing
common interest in the generation of ultrashort pulses in the picosecond,
femtosecond, and attosecond regimes and their applications to studies
ultrafast phenomena in physics, chemistry, material science, electronics,
biology, engineering, and medical applications. In addition, submissions
involving real world applications of ultrafast technology are encouraged.
tabletop exhibit featuring leading companies will be held in conjunction
Plan to attend UP 2008!
