Stuttgart, Germany – Miniaturization and high precision are rapidly becoming a requirement in many industrial processes and products. As a result, there is greater interest in the use of laser microfabrication approaches to achieve these goals. The International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM) is annually held to provide a forum for research and technology development in the area of laser micro/ nano fabrication. The unique aspect of this symposium is the interchange between fundamental research and industrial applications.
LPM is held alternatively in Japan and in other host countries. To date, LPM has been successfully hosted in Omiya, Singapore, Osaka, Munich, Nara, Williamsburg, Kyoto, Vienna, Quebec, and Kobe.
This year LPM will be held June 7-10 in the International Congress Center (ICS) on the Stuttgart trade fairgrounds, concurrently with the international trade fair for system solutions in laser material processing, LASYS, and the Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum (SLT). The LPM2010 program is available online. About 130 oral presentations and 50 posters will be presented.
Special sessions are organized for the hot topics: 3D processing, nanostructures and photovoltaic applications
Stuttgart, well known as a car capital, is also the center of one of the most advanced regions in the field of manufacturing with lasers. Suppliers like Trumpf and pioneering users like Daimler and Bosch are located here and benefit from renowned research infrastructure.
The EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION due date is May 15, 2010.
