→ Welcome message from the Co-chairs
The ninth of the ISUILS series was held at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort
& Spa in Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A. during December 9th - 13th, 2010. At the
opening session, tributes were paid to the Honorary Co-chairs of the
symposium, Dr. Paul Corkum, Prof. Hiroki Nakamura, and Dr. Didier
Normand. We had seven scientific sessions covering the most recent
topics in ultrafast intense laser science and enjoyed the presentations
given by the discussion leaders and the invited speakers as well as the
stimulating discussions after those presentations.
In the Sponsors' Sessions on Dec. 11th and 12th, we had presentations by
six sponsor companies, Thales Optronique, Femtolasers, Fastlite,
Amplitude Technologies, Coherent, and Japan Laser Corporation on their
recent R&D and new products.
We believe that the attendees enjoyed not only the scientific program
but the island's pleasant weather and atmosphere. On behalf of the
international organizing committee of ISUILS, we would like to thank all
the invited participants, all the attendees, and all the sponsor
organizations and companies for having made the symposium enjoyable and successful.
