The 21st Ultrafast Phenomena Conference will take place from 15 to 20 July 2018 at the Grand Elysée Hotel, Hamburg, Germany.

The Ultrafast Phenomena Conference, held every two years, started in 1976 and is widely recognised as the premier and main international forum for gathering the community of scientists and engineers working in research and technology related to ultrafast phenomena. It is indeed a unique opportunity to bring together atomic, molecular and condensed matter physicists, physical chemists, biophysicists and scientists, developing new tools, methodologies and techniques, all working on the science of ultrafast phenomena.

The 2018 edition will be the 21st of the series and the sixth to be hosted in Europe. It will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers sharing a common interest in the generation, manipulation and use of ultra-short pulses in the picosecond to the attosecond regimes, and their applications to studies of ultrafast phenomena in physics, chemistry, materials science, electronics, biology, engineering, and medical applications.

The conference will feature the following invited speakers:

  • Thomas Elsässer, Max Born Institute, Germany
  • Nuh Gedik, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA
  • Peter Hommelhoff, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany
  • Ursula Keller, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
  • Dongho Kim, Yonsei University, Korea
  • Dwayne Miller, Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Germany
  • Hans Jakob Wörner, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
  • Junko Yano, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA

Additionally, an international table-top exhibit featuring leading companies in lasers, optics and optoelectronics and instrumentation will be held in conjunction with the meeting.

Contributed submissions are now encouraged. Authors wishing to submit are requested to proceed online here.

Summary and Abstract Deadline: January 26, 2018.
