Welcome to SLPC2022

The 4th Smart Laser Processing Conference 2022
April 19-21, 2022, Yokohama, Japan

Organized by Japan Laser Processing Society (JLPS)

Co-organized by Joining and Welding Research Institute, Osaka University, Japan
Co-located with OPIC2022 -OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Congress 2022 (April 18-22, 2022, Organized by OPI Council)

Venue: Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan


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. SLPC2022 deals with science and technology of smart laser materials processing including micro and macro laser processing. SLPC2022 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 SLPC2022 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 SLPC2022 conference, OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Congress 2022 (OPIC2022) will be held jointly. SLPC2022 attendees can join the other conferences of OPIC2022 free of charge since SLPC2022 is one of the conferences of OPIC2022.

Note: SLPC2022 will be presented as a hybrid event - a combination of in-person and virtual participation options. Considering the current restrictions on entry into Japan, there is no other way but to give lectures and participate in lectures by overseas residents, but in principle, domestic residents give lectures and participate in a face-to-face manner. In addition, please note that it may be changed depending on the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the future. It is still not easy to hold a conference, but we will do our best to prevent corona infection, and we ask for your active participation and support.
