ID
831628
Dates
05 Jun 2017 - 08 Jun 2017
Location
Toyama, Japan
Abstract
Miniaturization and high precision are rapidly becoming requirements in many industrial processes and products. As a result, there is greater interest in the use of laser micro fabrication approaches to achieve these goals. The International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM) is alternatively held in Japan and in other host countries. To date, LPM has been successfully hosted in Omiya, Singapore, Osaka, Munich, Nara, Williamsburg, Kyoto, Vienna, Quebec, Kobe, Stuttgart, Takamatsu, Washington D.C., Niigata, Vilnius, Kokura and Xi’an. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for discussion of fundamental aspects of laser-matter interaction, the state-of-the-art of laser materials processing, and topics for the next generation with fundamental scientists, end users and laser manufactures. We expect that LPM2017 would play an important role not only for understanding fundamental knowledge of laser precision microfabrication but also forecasting future technologies to be developed and the future laser market.
Topics
Laser microfabrication, Fundamental aspects, Photochemistry, Process monitoring and control, Nanotechnology, Laser-based direct-write techniques, Ultra-short pulse laser processing, VUV laser and X-ray processing, Advanced laser sources, Advanced laser processing, Beam shaping, etc.

Abstract
Calibration is becoming increasingly more challenging as measurement requirements for many of today's remote sensing applications become more stringent. The Characterization and Radiometric Calibration for Remote Sensing (CALCON) annual meeting provides a forum for scientists, engineers, and managers to present, discuss, and learn about calibration, characterization, and radiometric issues within the microwave, IR, visible, and UV spectral ranges. Individuals developing measurement requirements for current and future sensor systems are encouraged to participate in the meetings to foster continuity and advancement within the community. CALCON attendance enables interaction with other experts, helps close the gap between expectations and real-world experiences, and may result in the discovery of solutions to individual program challenges.

Abstract
The ICO (International Commission for Optics) General Congress has been one of the most historic and authoritative conferences in the field of optics and photonics since the 1st congress was held in the Netherlands in 1948. Following ICO-13 in Sapporo in 1984, in 2017 Japan will once again host ICO-24: which is to be held at the Keio Plaza Hotel, Shinjuku, Tokyo, from August 21st to 25th. With attendees and delegates from all over the world, ICO-24 will include a wide range of topics on optics and photonics, providing a platform for mutual communication between researchers of different fields linked with the main common theme of “Light for Society”. Since the invention of lasers, the field of optical science has expanded to incorporate quantum and nonlinear optics, photonics, nano-optics, semiconductor optical materials science, complex dynamics, quantum computing, etc., and has grown to have technological applications in communications, health, material processing, renewable energy generation, and energy saving. Optical imaging science also plays an important role in monitoring disaster risks and ecosystem changes due to global warming. ICO-24 will consist of plenary sessions, oral sessions, poster sessions, and various social events. The plenary session will feature speakers who will share their viewpoints on very relevant topics of present interest and also their visions and perspectives on future trends. A current list of the inspiring plenary speakers includes Prof. Hiroshi Amano (2014 Nobel Laureate, Nagoya Univ.), Prof. Hiroshi Kajita (2015 Nobel Laureate, The Univ. of Tokyo), Prof. Christopher Dainty (Imperial Col. London), and Prof. James Fujimoto (Massachusetts Inst. of Tech.).
