The XXI (The 20th) International Symposium on High-Power Laser Systems and Applications 2016, HPLS&A 2016, will be held in Gmunden / Austria again from the 5th to 9th  September 2016. For over thirty years GCL&HPL has provided an excellent opportunity for researchers in gas, chemical and high power lasers, along with the end-users of these lasers to exchange ideas, review the state-of-the-art and foresee emerging trends within the field. Its scope is broad, including fundamental research, laser development, systems engineering and gas, chemical and high power laser applications in a wide range of fields. 

Following the tradition of precedent editions, HPLS&A 2016 will bring together scientists and engineers from the whole world to create an event where members of the laser community can meet to discuss the latest achievements and to initiate new contacts and collaborations. Keynote and Invited presentations will highlight important research trends in a wide spectrum of topics.

The Symposium Organisers are looking forward to welcoming you at the HPLS&A 2016 in Gmunden.
