March 2--The Laser Institute of America (LIA) is seeking abstract submissions for the 26th International Congress on Applications of Lasers & Electro-Optics (ICALEO 2007), to be held October 29-November 1 in Orlando, Florida. ICALEO 2007 will include two conferences, the Laser Materials Processing Conference and the Laser Microprocessing Conference, as well as a Poster Presentation Gallery, the Laser Solutions Short Courses, and a Business Development Session. Furthermore, an exciting new conference has been added for 2007 devoted strictly to nanomanufacturing.
The Nanomanufacturing Conference will feature such notable topics as nanomanufacturing of biomedical devices, nanometrology by laser and optical methods, and nanosensors for brain-machine interfacing. Areas of special interest that will be addressed include education, information technology, nanoxerography, holography and interferometry, nanopositioners, pulsed laser deposition, and more. Papers are being sought for each of these topics.
Additionally, papers are being sought in the Laser Materials Processing Conference to cover topics such as aerospace, automotive, and laser safety; processes like rapid prototyping, surface modification, and cutting and drilling, and lasers including diode, hybrid, and advanced laser sources. Areas of special interest in the Laser Microprocessing Conference consist of applications in medical device and MEMS fabrication, processes such as laser ablation and ultrafast, and systems including picosecond and femtosecond lasers and UV/VUV and EUV sources.
Abstracts should contain original, recent unpublished results of application research, development, or implementation. The submission deadline is March 23, 2007.
