Joint UFDIM conference HICONO School

September 28th– October 4th, 2018

Hotel MIRABELO BEACH & VILLAGE, Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece

The 5th UFDIM (Ultrafast Dynamic Imaging of Matter) conference is organized in conjunction with a Summer School of the HICONO Network http://www.hicono.eu/ on “Applications of Strong Field Non-Linear Optics”, in Agios Nikolaos Crete, Greece from 28th September – 4th October 2018.

The UFDIM conference focuses on new techniques for imaging the dynamics of molecules and matter on ultrafast timescales, from femtoseconds to attoseconds. A special emphasis lies on the applications of new sources, including X-ray free-electron lasers, high-harmonic sources, few-cycle laser pulses, and ultrashort electron pulses. This conference is the fifth in a row. Previous conferences were held in London (2006), Ischia (2009), Banff (2012) and Grindelwald (2015). The conference will host key note talks, invited talks introductory talks by the session discussion leaders and poster presentations. All talks are by invitation.

The High Intensity Coherent Nonlinear Optics (HICONO) is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network aims at combining the concepts of coherent control with high-intensity nonlinear-optical interactions towards an enhancement of non-linear optical processes. The school on “Applications of Strong Field Non-Linear Optics” will consist of 60min long lectures (+10 min discussion) and student poster presentations.
