The Japan Laser Processing Society (JLPS) and Landesmesse Stuttgart have announced that Lasys 2010 will be the venue for the 11th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM). This will be the first time that the LPM symposium will be held concurrently with Lasys.
The LPM will commence one day before the start of Lasys 2010. The four-day LPM Forum will be staged concurrently with Lasys, which will run from 8 to 10 June 2010. LPM will promote the exchange of know-how between basic researchers and industrial users in the area of micro laser technologies. 'LPM is primarily aimed at German and foreign developers and users of micro production engineering with lasers', said Professor Friedrich Dausinger, chairman of the programme committee.
The range of topics on offer at the LPM Forum will include modelling and simulation of processes, process control and monitoring, nano technology, direct writing processes, ultrashort laser pulse methods, surface treatment, micro structuring, 3-D micro and nano structure production, drilling and cutting in the micro range, welding, bonding, marking, trimming, lithography, production of micro construction elements, industrial/medical/biological applications, optics for laser micro processing, and much more besides.
'We are expecting more than 200 participants, primarily from the Far East, where this event has its origins and home', said Professor Dausinger. The last LPM Symposium was staged in Kobe, Japan, and proved a great success with 293 participants.
