6th ELI-ALPS User Workshop
The Extreme Light Infrastructure – Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) is organizing its sixth User Workshop on November 15 - 16 2018, in Szeged, Hungary.
The ELI-ALPS being implemented in Szeged, Hungary is one of the three pillars of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) listed in the ESFRI roadmap. It will be the first international facility with the mission to make a wide range of ultrafast light and particle sources accessible to international user groups. The first laser systems (Mid-IR and High Repetition Rate) have been installed end of 2017 and are operational since the beginning of 2018. Using these lasers systems the first commissioning experiments by expert users have been, are currently and are scheduled to be implemented in this year, in the framework of collaboration MoUs with ELI-ALPS.
ELI-ALPS, as an international user facility, is undertaking actions towards forming an international user community and incorporating users from a broad spectrum of disciplines, research areas and technological/industrial application. The 6th workshop is in the framework of these actions as a continuation of the “preparatory” 5th users’ workshop of 2017.
• talks on finalized experiments, of ongoing and scheduled campaigns as well as on future commissioning experiments of beam-line and end-station developers
• round table discussion targeting the sharing of experiences impressions and improvement suggestions of the commissioning users is considered
More details about the program will be available soon on the event's website HERE. We opened the registration here.

8th Conference of the International Committee on Ultrahigh Intensity Lasers
ICUIL 2018 is again expected to showcase the latest on multilateral projects like ELI, XCELS and IZEST as well as other efforts across the world in the direction of ultra-intense lasers. Following the spirit of the ICUIL conferences, in particular the last meeting at Montebello, Canada, technical and scientific themes concerning ultra-intense lasers will be addressed: (i) ultra-intense laser design and performance including Nd:glass-based, Ti:sapphire, DPSSL and OPCPA and novel architectures, (ii) novel technologies for ultra-intense lasers, e.g compression components and strategies, modelling and fabrication, high damage -threshold and ultra-broadband laser components, pulse control, and diagnostics , and (iii) applications of ultra-intense lasers for laser acceleration, short-wavelength sources, attosecond sources, exploration of warm-dense matter, high-field physics and more. This conference will emphasize the many contributions from students and young scientists in this dynamic field of ultra-high intensity lasers.

VUVX2016 Satellite Workshop
Ultrafast Dynamics and Time-Resolved Interactions
Chairs: C. Miron & D. Charalambidis
The Extreme Light Infrastructure, ELI, is pleased to announce the Ultrafast Dynamics and Time-Resolved Interactions International Workshop, a satellite meeting of the VUVX2016 Conference. During the workshop, which is co-organized by ELI-DC and ELI-ALPS, and hosted by ELI-Attosecond in Szeged (Hungary), the world leading specialists will share the most recent research results obtained with lasers, free electron lasers and synchrotron radiation in the field of ultrafast dynamics for all types of samples from atoms and molecules to clusters, surfaces, interfaces and solids.
You are welcome to join and learn about the new possibilities and exciting scientific perspectives offered by ELI.
Admission is FREE, but registration is required (limited space). Please click on the following link for Registration.
The scientific programme will be available soon on the website of the workshop.
ELI Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS), the Hungarian pillar of ELI based in Szeged, will provide ultrashort light pulses at high repetition rate in the spectral range between THz and X-rays. ELI-ALPS is dedicated to exploring elementary processes in physics, chemistry, materials science, and biomedicine, with emphasis on extremely fast dynamics, probed by taking snap-shots of electron motion on the attosecond time scale in all states of matter (www.eli-alps.hu).
“Ultrafast Dynamics and Time-Resolved Interactions” is a satellite meeting of the International Conference VUVX2016 (http://www.psi.ch/vuvx2016), which will take place in Zürich, 3-8 July 2016.

Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic
Laser plasma accelerators have made tremendous progresses delivering high quality and high current beams of energetic particles. Their interests for medicine, biology, chemistry and material science have been pointed out by a large scientific community and have motivated unique large scale initiatives such the ELI’s projects.
In the Czech Republic, the ELI Beamlines facility aims to offer to scientists the most efficient and the most competitive beamlines/user-stations to realize their dreams. To give the best chances of success we decided to organize a series of workshops to the relevant topics of interest. The aims of the ELIMEDICS workshop are to explore, to discuss, to schedule and to optimize the design for the experimental setups to be offered to the users. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the fields and of the facility we wish to trigger fruitful discussions between experts in the field of high power laser-matter interaction and potential users, as well as young scientists, to motivate them to suggest new ideas and corresponding requirements.
The workshop will be held in the conference room of the new ELI Beamlines building, in the vicinity of the wonderful city of Prague.
