About PICALO
Pacific International Conference on Applications of Lasers and Optics (PICALO) focuses on the growth and application of lasers and optics in the Pacific region. PICALO brings together researchers, engineers, equipment suppliers and industry personnel to hear the latest developments and progress in lasers and applications and to share knowledge, experiences and visions. PICALO offers an exciting technical and social program in cities that represent laser growth in the Pacific region. PICALO features sessions on Laser Materials Processing and Micro, Nano and Ultrafast Fabrication as well as the International Enterprise Summit.

Who Should Attend PICALO?
Anyone interested in lasers and materials processing from the basic understanding of the interaction between a laser beam and a material, to those interested in how a process can be integrated and optimized for an application. The organizing committee's goal for PICALO is to bring both academic and industry people together who may benefit from laser technology. This includes researchers and end-users as well as engineers and technicians engaged in developing laser technology. For more information e-mail picalo@laserinstitute.org.

Featured at PICALO 2010:

Laser Materials Processing Conference
The Laser Materials Processing Conference features the latest developments across the world in laser cutting, machining, surface modification, welding, additive manufacturing, laser modeling and simulation, drilling and forming, and industrial applications. Invited speakers from leading research groups and companies worldwide will present their recent findings and future prospects.

Laser Micro, Nano and Ultrafast Fabrication Conference
The Laser Micro, Nano and Ultrafast Fabrication Conference is a global forum for engineers and scientists from a variety of industry segments and institutes to meet and discuss the use of laser micro, nano and ultrafast fabrication and diagnosis as a key technology for various applications. Attendees will find innovative ideas and solutions for laser micro, nano and ultrafast fabrication in opto- and microelectronics, electronics, microsystems, material processing and biomedical industries.

International Enterprise Summit
Now that 2009 is behind us, people are looking ahead to 2010 searching for signs of economic recovery in the laser industry. The International Enterprise Summit has invited executives and experts from the laser industry worldwide to Wuhan, the "Optical Valley" of China to discuss the current status and future trends of our industry. This session's theme is Advanced Lasers and Laser Processing Systems. CEOS and CTOs of laser industry will present their latest research and development activities, showcase their new products and predict the markets. The speakers will put forward their insights on how to break through the down turn economic cycle in order to be ready for the future growth. Don't miss this rare opportunity!
