→ Welcome message from the Co-chairs
Our eleventh ISUILS meeting was held at the Shilla hotel, Jeju, Korea, during October 21 – 25, 2012. At the opening session, a tribute was given to the Honorary Chair of the symposium, Prof. Jongmin Lee (APRI, GIST, Korea). It was followed by ten sessions covering the wide areas of rapidly growing interdisciplinary research fields of ultrafast intense laser science. We enjoyed the presentations made by the invited speakers and discussion leaders as well as the stimulating discussions that followed the presentations.
We had a session of short “oral” presentations for poster papers, in which a maximum of two minutes were given to each poster presenters to present their poster papers in power-point slides. This year we had as many as 29 poster papers, and the poster session that followed was equally lively as the oral session.
In the Sponsors’ Sessions, we had presentations by seven sponsor companies, Horiba Jobin Yvon, Amplitude Technologies, Japan Laser Corporation, Fastlite, Femtolasers, Thales Optronique, and Coherent.
We believe the attendees enjoyed both the scientific program as well as the atmosphere of a Korean island resort. On behalf of the international organizing committee, we thank again all the invited participants, all attendees, and all the sponsor companies and organizations for having made the symposium both successful and enjoyable.
