Message from Co-chairs of ISUILS3
September 29, 2004
Dear Attendees,

It is surprising that time flies so quickly. Already, more than one week have passed since the event of ISUILS3 was held in Palermo.

The presentations were stimulating and the discussion was exciting. The discussion leaders made a wonderful effort to activate lively discussion. The ISUILS format again showed that interdisciplinary discussion at the forefront of ultrafast intense laser science is really enjoyable.

We all thank you very much for your participation and cooperation that made the ISUISL3, Palermo Meeting, so successful.

After the opening ceremony at the historical place of Palazzo Steri, with cerebration of the achievement of the two honorary co-chairs, Prof. Orazio Svelto and Prof. Leonid Keldysh, we came back to Citta del Mare, a wonderful resort.

The weather was dynamically changing; bright sunshine followed by a thunder storm, sun beams penetrating through clouds radially, and beautiful sunset. All of these were really spectacular.

Pleasant conversation with delicious food and excellent wine was harmonized with the atmosphere extracted from rich and complex history of Sicily, which we felt through the memorable tour to Segesta, Marsala, and Erice.

The next ISUILS will be held in Hawaii in December next year. We hope that we could get together again on that occasion for the pursuit of the next frontier of science.

With sincere thanks,

Gaetano Ferrante, Pierre Agostini, and Kaoru Yamanouchi
Co-chairs, ISUILS3
