Aim and Scope: Laser technology is already being used in all areas of science and industry, and new discoveries and developments that will give rise to the next generation continue to emerge. LMPA2023 aims to strengthen the network of outstanding researchers from around the world for the next generation of science & technology by discussing a wide range of topics. On-site time will be shared in Hida Takayama, which is close to the UNESCO World Heritage site and an old Japanese landscape, providing an opportunity for lively discussions and communications.
