The 4th Smart Laser Processing Conference
April
21-23, 2020
Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan


Organized by Japan Laser Processing Society (JLPS)

Venue: Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan

Co-located with Optics & Photonics International Congress 2020 (OPIC2020) April 20-24, 2020


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. @
