Cancellation of SLPC2020

Thank you very much for your interest toward SLPC2020- the 4th Smart Laser Processing Conference which was originally scheduled on April 21-23, 2020 in Yokohama, Japan. We regret to say that in the wake of the unprecedented scare caused by the new corona virus (COVID-19) all over the world, the Extraordinary Steering Committee meeting of SLPC 2020 decided to cancel SLPC 2020. We hope that you understand our decision. We hope that the current threat of the new corona virus tapers down all over the world soon, and we are looking forward to seeing you at the next SLPC in the future!

AIM AND SCOPE

Laser beam processing has played an important role in industrial fields of not only macro-products but also micro-products, and its technologies are essential to open the new strategies of smart manufacturing such as highly integrated, accurate, efficient processing with low energy consumption. SLPC2020 deals with science and technology of smart laser materials processing including micro and macro laser processing. SLPC2020 is planned as a three-day event with a plenary session, oral sessions and poster session.

The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for discussion of fundamental aspects of laser-matter interaction, the state-of-the-art of smart laser processing, and topics for the next generation with fundamental scientists, end users and laser manufacturers. We expect that SLPC2020 would play an important role not only for understanding fundamental knowledge of laser processing but also forecasting future technologies and the future laser processing fields.

During the conference, Optics and Photonics International Exhibition is held jointly at the conference site.
