3. Half day special Symposium “Al in laser science”
The Europhoton 2022 conference also welcomes submissions to the Special Symposium.
4. One day and a half Summer School
The conference includes a one-day and a half Summer School to be held from Sunday 28 August (afternoon) to Monday 29 August (all day) 2022. PhD Students and Postdocs who have paid the conference fee are especially invited to attend the Summer School. They will receive free entrance to the Summer School. The lecture program will be presented by lecturers who are internationally renowned in their research subjects. It will give students a chance to get introduced into various laser related subjects, covering the basics up to the latest research results.
