ICALEO® 2007 Adds Nanomanufacturing Conference

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) is seeking abstract submissions for ICALEO 2007, which will include two conferences, the Laser Materials Processing Conference and the Laser Microprocessing Conference. 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, holograph and interferometry, nanopositioners, pulsed laser deposition, and much 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Abstracts should contain original, recent unpublished results of application research, development or implementation.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 23 March 2007.

Additionally, congress organizers are seeking instructors to present short courses that will provide attendees with a broad-based understanding of how practical applications of lasers are making an impact on manufacturing and provide resources for further information. Commercial content will not be accepted.

ICALEO® has a 25-year history as the premier conference for researchers and end-users to meet and discuss state-of-the-art laser technology and predictions for the future.
