The Industrial Laser Application Symposium (ILAS), organised by the Association of Laser Users (AILU), provides a biennial opportunity for those involved in the use and development of Laser Materials Processing (LMP) to present their work and showcase their products; with the aim of stimulating further technological and applications developments and an increase in the use of LMP.
Building on the success of ILAS 2011, ILAS 2013 (Nottingham Belfry Hotel, 12-13 March 2013) will provide a programme of technical presentations covering the state-of-the-art in the wide scope of LMP processes and applications, ranging from those already well-established in industrial processes through to new developments to meet the themes of the UK’s manufacturing agenda. Reviews of LMP processes and technology will also be provided for those who are new to the use of lasers or are moving into a new area of laser processing. ILAS 2013 will also provide an exhibition for suppliers of laser-related products and services and other opportunities for delegates to network with the UK knowledge base and supply chain.
A prize of £200 will be awarded for the best student presentation, which will be judged on the basis of quality of presentation and its relevance to industrial need.
The scope of the symposium includes:
- Laser sources and systems/machines
- Laser beam manipulation and work piece manipulation
- All LMP applications of relevance to manufacturing industry, from micro to macro-scale
- Strategic planning and other business matters.
Deadline for submission: 24 September 2012
