IX International Conference Atomic and Molecular Pulsed Lasers - AMPL

September 14-18, 2009, Tomsk, Russia

First Announcement

The IX AMPL Conference will be traditionally devoted to physical processes in laser active media, new active media and pumping methods, new lasers development technologies, fundamental issues of laser physics, non-coherent UV and VUV-radiation sources. One of the principal goals of the Conference is contiguity of fundamental and applied sciences; therefore much attention is paid to application of lasers and excilamps in science, engineering, medicine and other areas of activity as well as to discussion of problems of laser and excilamp - based apparatus and to new optical technologies.

The Conference Organizers are Institute of Atmospheric Optics SB RAS, Institute of High Current Electronics SB RAS, Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological System SB RAS, Tomsk State University, Tomsk Polytechnic University, Siberian Physical Technical Institute, Physical Institute RAS, General Physics Institute RAS, SPIE Russia Chapter, Russian State University for Innovation Technology and Business.

Scientific program of the Conference includes the following sessions:
- gas and plasma lasers (session A);
- metal vapor lasers (session B);
- photonics of optical materials (session C);
- femtosecond lasers and laser systems (session D);
- laser systems and new laser and optical technologies, laser applications (session E);
- non-coherent UV and VUV-radiation sources (session F);
- conversion of laser radiation, optoelectronic devices (session G).
The Conference will take place in the Institute of Atmospheric Optics SB RAS. The Conference provides for listening to the invited and oral presentations and work of poster sessions as well as a young scientists session that will include a competition of reports. All Conference participants will have an opportunity to visit the research institutes and universities of Tomsk and have a sightseeing tour.

The official language of the Conference is English.

For participation in the Conference you are kindly requested to submit a preliminary application and paper abstracts in electronic form (Word for Windows) to the Organizing Committee.

The application form must contain the following information:
List of authors (with the speaker's name and surname on the first place); affiliations, mailing address, e-mail, fax and phone numbers; title of a paper; session and presentation form (oral/poster); hotel accommodation (if needed); visa support (needed or not). The Application form can be found here.

Paper abstracts must contain:
Title of the paper; list of authors (with the speaker's name underlined); brief summery of the paper in English (maximum 200 words). The Abstract form can be found here.

In case you need visa support, you are recommended to feel in the form that can be found here. In view of toughening of the security measures, preparation of Invitation letters and visas takes rather much time. Therefore all foreign participants of the AMPL-2009 Conference are kindly requested to submit the filled-in Visa Support Forms up to May 01, 2009.

Abstracts and Program of the AMPL-2009 Conference will be placed on the Conference web-site and edited as hardcopies. The Conference proceedings will be edited in English in subject editions of Proceedings of SPIE (for author guidelines, forms, and templates, go to: http://spie.org/Publications/Proceedings/Manuscripts/).

Paper abstracts and Application forms can be sent either on a CD to the mailing address of the Organizing Committee, or by e-mail.
