3.  Special Symposium: "Novel laser-matter interaction regimes "
The Europhoton Conference includes a half day Special Symposium entitled "Novel laser-matter interaction regimes ". We are experiencing truly exciting times for laser-matter interactions, as two broad fields have accelerated in recent years simultaneously. On the scientific side, interaction of intense laser radiation with matter enabled by novel laser sources now provide convenient access to extreme parameter ranges, which were only recently unthinkable, with impact from high-field physics to generation of x-rays. On the applications side, ultrafast lasers are finally fulfilling their long-held promise of transforming laser-material and in particular laser-tissue interactions, from glass processing to recently developed femtosecond cataract surgeries, with significant impact already materializing in the multi-billion dollar industries associated with them. 
Ranging from large-scale facilities to portable laser boxes, the common driving force behind these developments is the capability to access extreme parameter ranges enabled by recent developments in laser technology. The goal of this Special Symposium is to bring together a diverse group of users and developers of applications of novel interaction regimes together with the community behind the development of the laser technology, such that common interests as well as laser needs, which are not addressed by existing technologies can be identified.”

4. Summer School on “Frontiers of Solid-State Light Sources” Aug. 21 – Aug. 22, 2016
The conference includes a two-day Summer School to be held from Sunday, August 21st (afternoon) to Monday, August 22nd (afternoon), 2016. PhD Students and Postdocs who have paid the conference fee are especially invited to attende the Summer School. They will receive free entrance to the Summer School. The same rule will be applied for the full paying conference participants. The lecture program will be presented by lecturers who are internationally renowed in their research subjects. It will give students a chance to get introduced into various laser related subjects, covering the basics up to the latest research results.
