Due to the COVID pandemics, the meeting of 2020 has been postponed to the year after. Updated information will be provided in early January 2021. Stay tuned!



 The Program Committee for Progress in Ultrafast Laser Modifications of Materials would like to extend an invitation to you to give an invited presentation at the next conference to be held in Nikko, Japan.

The inaugural conference held in Cargèse, Corsica in 2013, featured 33 invited speakers from around the world presenting talks over a four day period. The combination of longer presentation format, and outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities, resulted in many attendees commenting on the superior inspirational environment of the conference. This was followed by the second PULMM conference held in Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 2015 and the third held in Telluride, Colorado, USA in 2018 those were received with similar enthusiasm.

We hope to see you in Nikko for another edition of this workshop!
