Helmholtz Laser and Photonics Meeting

We kindly invite you to our first Helmholtz Laser and Photonics Meeting held at DESY Hamburg from the 03. – 05.12.2019.

We would like to establish a Helmholtz-wide workshop on the topic of “laser and photonics”. The intention of the workshop is to bring the experts, engineers and scientists working with lasers of all Helmholtz centers together to present their projects. Our goal is to establish exchange of information and knowledge as well as to find possible collaborations for the future.

The first meeting will be organized by DESY, we would like to annually circle this event through all involved Helmholtz centers. We ask you to spread this announcement in your teams, groups and institutes. Please encourage your colleagues and students to participate. The registration and abstracts for poster and talks can be submitted till the 20th of October.

We are glad for your active participation and feedback and looking forward to see you all in December.
