LPM 2020" forecasts its (virtual) shadow

The German Materials Society (DGM) is pleased to host the "21th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication"(LPM), one of the most renowned international events in the field of laser precision manufacturing this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference, originally scheduled for Dresden, will now take place entirely over the Internet - although the event date, June 23rd to 26th remains unchanged.


Current security measures and existing travel restrictions prevent an on-site meeting, but DGM has already developed an alternative solution to bring the international LPM community together in virtual space. The organisers' concept has been very well received, and the web conference will now continue to allow all interested parties to access the content on offer - be it lectures, posters or visits from the associated exhibitors.

Under the direction of Hiroyuki Niino (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan) and Andrés Fabián Lasagni (TU Dresden, Fraunhofer IWS, Germany) a comprehensive and multi-stranded program has been developed, which is currently being adapted to the new infrastructure of the virtual conference and will be communicated around mid-June.


LPM visitors can look forward to the following plenary speakers:

Prof. Dr. Andras Tünnermann
10 kW-class ultrashort-pulse lasers for industrial applications

Prof. Nicholas X. Fang
Meta-Manufacturing: Multiscale and Multifunctional Manufacturing at Digital Age

Dr. Koji Sugioka
Advanced femtosecond laser 3D micro/nanoprocessing

Prof. David R. Harding
Laser-based microfabrication and metrology of laser-driven inertial fusion targets

Prof. Jiyeon Choi
Ultrafast laser processing to innovate consumer electronics manufacturing

Prof. Dr. Ir. Hugo Thienpont


Another exciting aspect of the "21th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication" is that visitors do not have to miss an exhibition even in virtual space. Instead, the DGM has created a digital platform where companies can present themselves prominently and with individually designed stands.

The LPM2020 is also pleased to have a Gold Partner in LAMpAS for virtual implementation.
