The 7th Laser Ignition and Giant-microphotonics Conference (LIC2019) will be held on 22 - 26 April 2019 in Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan.

An international forum to discuss all aspects of laser induced ignition: advances in novel giant pulse micro-lasers, new insights into the phenomena of laser induced breakdown, and advanced combustion systems enabled by laser ignition.

The purpose of this meeting is to share information on laser ignition and related sciences and technologies. The conference will be held on 22 - 26 April 2019 in Pacifico Yokohama with the sponsorship from Micro Solid-Sate Photonics Group of the Laser Society of Japan (LSJ) in cooperation with OSA and several academic societies and associations.
