The aim of the High-Intensity Sources and High-Field Phenomena meeting is to assemble a multi disciplinary group of participants to present and exchange breakthrough ideas relating to the physics and applications of high-field sources, and related developments in high-intensity lasers and related technology. The topical topics include both fundamental science and applications of high-field phenomena, as well as technical aspects related to source development. There are 17 invited and 44 contributed oral presentations scheduled, together with 30 poster presentations.

laser optics Reception
Tuesday, 18 March, 17:00 - 21:00
Join your fellow attendees at the laser optics reception. Enjoy delectable fare while networking. The reception is open to full congress attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.

Joint Poster Sessions
Wednesday, 19 March, 10:30 - 11:30
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Postdeadline Papers
Wednesday, 19 March, 17:30 - 19:00
The QIM and HILAS committees will accept a limited number of postdeadline papers for oral presentation.  Before the sessions begin light refreshments will be served.
