HPLS&A 2022: The XXIII International Symposium on High-Power Laser Systems and Applications


The twenty-third edition of the International Symposium on High-Power Laser Systems and Applications, which had been held in many different cities across the world since 1976, returns to Prague this June. Co-organised by the HiLASE Centre, this year’s event will be another opportunity to bring together scientists, engineers and end-users in the field of high-power lasers.


The week-long symposium will include talks, posters and brainstorming discussions on laser technologies – from the basics to brand new innovative solutions. The twenty-one speakers at the symposium will include David C. Brown of Advanced Photonic Sciences in the US, and Yuji Sano of the Japanese Institute of Mollecular Science.

WHEN: 13. – 17. 6. 2022
WHERE: Prague Congress Centre
PRICE: until 5. 5. 2022 – 550 EUR (students 250 EUR), since 6. 5. 2022 – 650 EUR (students 350 EUR)

This year’s event will be focused on the following topics:

  • Advanced gas lasers including DPAL
  • Laser-plasma interactions
  • Ultra-high intensity lasers
  • High-power solid-state lasers
  • Fiber lasers and beam combining
  • Chemical and excimer lasers
  • Raman and Brillouin lasers
  • Laser applications/macro and micro processing including 3D printing in metals
  • Space applications, LIDAR
  • Novel concepts and modelling
  • Laser beam control

The programme also includes two social events: a gala dinner and a guided tour of your choice. For more information about the program, visit the HPLS&A 2022 website.
