General Information


ASILS is a conference series to encourage collaborations of Asian countries on intense laser science within the framework of Asian Intense Laser Network (AILN). The 1st Asian symposium on Intense Laser Science (ASILS) was held in Tokyo, Japan during June 18-19, 2004, followed by the kick-off committee meeting for the AILN establishment. From the second ASILS, ASILS2, held in Kochi, India on Jan. 22~27, 2006, the AILN has been in charge of running the ASILS symposium series. ASILS3 was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 2~6, 2007 and ASILS4 in Gwangju, Korea on November 3 ~ 6, 2008

The 5th ASIAN SYMPOSIUM ON INTENSE LASER SCIENCE (ASILS5) will be held on 2 - 5 December 2009 at Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. This event is jointly organized by the Institute of Physics (IOP), Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) and the Optic & Spectroscopy Society of Vietnam (OSV).

In association with the ASILS5 symposium, an international college (for which the tutorial lectures will be given by international experts) will be held in Hanoi from 30 Nov. to 2 Dec., 2009. The purpose of this three-day course is for training young physicists and/or students of Vietnam and Asian countries in the field of laser science and photonics.
