XXI International Conference on Ultrafast Phenomena, 15-20 July 2018, Hamburg, Germany / 1st Call for papers





The 21st Ultrafast Phenomena Conference to take place from 15 to 20 July 2018 at the Grand Elysée Hotel, Hamburg, Germany.


The Ultrafast Phenomena Conferences held every two years started in 1976 and are widely recognized as the premier and main international forum for gathering the community of scientists and engineers working in research and technology related to ultrafast phenomena. It is indeed a unique opportunity to bring together atomic, molecular and condensed matter physicists, physical chemists, biophysicists and scientists developing new tools, methodologies and techniques, all working on the science of ultrafast phenomena.


The 2018 edition will be the XXIst of the series and the sixth to be hosted in Europe. It will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers sharing a common interest in the generation, manipulation and use of ultra short pulses in the picosecond to the attosecond regimes, and their applications to studies of ultrafast phenomena in physics, chemistry, materials science, electronics, biology, engineering, and medical applications.


The conference will feature the following invited speakers:


Thomas Elsässer, Max Born Institute, Germany

Nuh Gedik, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

Peter Hommelhoff, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany

Ursula Keller, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Dongho Kim, Yonsei University, Korea

Dwayne Miller, Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Germany

Hans Jakob Wörner, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Junko Yano, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA


Additionally, an international tabletop exhibit featuring leading companies in lasers, optics and optoelectronics and instrumentation will be held in conjunction with the meeting.


Contributed submissions are now encouraged. Authors wishing to submit are requested to proceed online here.


Summary and Abstract Deadline: January 26, 2018.
