The Symposium called “From simple physical concepts to a new notion of space, time and gravitation” will take place at ETH in Zurich (CH) from 12-14 November 2015.
“Light & Life” was the title of an international symposium held with great success on 21 and 22 July in the prestigious setting of Villa Monastero (Varenna, Lake Como, Italy). The reports presented by Italian and foreign experts – among them Robert A. Lieberman, President Elect of SPIE, the International Society for Optics & Photonics -, and which are now available on the website of the Italian Physical Society (SIF), embraced many areas of basic and applied research based on light sources (from the Sun to common light bulbs, from extreme power lasers to synchrotrons) and their effects (in analysis and investigation techniques, such as microscopy and sensor technology, as well as directly on biological processes).
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…
