The symposium “From Fundamental Physics to Societal Applications” [IZEST-Tokyo] will take place in Tokyo, Japan, from 18-20 November 2013.

In the framework of the International Coherent Amplification Network programme [ICAN], the symposium will discuss the possible applications of the Zetta-Exawatt Science and Technology [IZEST]. Amplifications, allowed by extreme energetic and peak powered laser beam, offer new horizons to the high-energy physics. Among the applications…
