COLA is the premier international conference with long history that has been held every two years since 1991. The research in laser ablation is widely spread from fundamental science on laser material interaction to application technology for laser processing, discovery of new phenomena, and development of the latest laser light, and they are closely related to each other. The aim of this conference is to bring together leading researchers, end users and manufacturers based on these topics to provide a platform for sharing new ideas and discovering solutions. We expect that COLA 2021/2022 will play an important role not only in understanding fundamental knowledge of laser processing, but also in forecasting future technologies and laser processing fields.
The 16th International Conference on Laser Ablation (COLA2021/2022) will be held at Shimane Prefectural Convention Center in Japan for 24-29 April, 2022. However, depending on the COVID-19 situation, the conference style may be shifted from on-site to online). We keep you updated via the conference website, https://www.cola2021.org/.
