Welcome to Ischia
The 12th International Conference on Laser Ablation (COLA 2013) will take place in Ischia, Italy, in October 2013.
The COLA conference brings together hundreds of scientists from all over the world providing a global, interdisciplinary forum covering topics in a wide range of scientific research areas, from basic science to applications and technology. The conference focuses on a variety of arguments which have their core in laser-materials interactions.
The conference continues the tradition initiated at the 1991 Conference in Oak Ridge (USA) and 1993 Conference in Knoxwille (USA), and strengthened at successive biannual meetings in Strasbourg (France, 1995), Monterey (USA, 1997), Göttingen (Germany, 1999), Tsukuba (Japan, 2001), Crete (Greece, 2003), Banff (Canada, 2005), Tenerife (Spain, 2007), Singapore (2009), and Playa del Carmen (Mexico, 2011).
