Call for Papers

Conference Scope
The LiM - Lasers in Manufacturing is the perfect platform for
efficient knowledge transfer in the field of lasers and their
applications. The LiM is organized by the German Scientific
Laser Society (WLT).
The LiM is devoted to scientific presentations on the latest
research results. Following the common code of good
scientific practice the presentations shall be complete,
comprehensible, and verifiable.
All contributions for the LiM will undergo a review process by
the scientific committee.
Conference Topics
Submission of Contributions
The LiM consists of two sub-conferences, one for macro and
one for micro applications, and joint sessions with ECLEO,
featuring a planned content of more than 100 papers

It is the aim of the LiM to bring together international experts
from research and industry in order to match scientific
advances and economic needs for mutual benefit.
Social Event
The LiM is a part of the World of Photonics Congress 2015.
This allows to coordinate joint sessions in order to highlight
topics at the interface of the thematic areas covered by the
participating conferences.
We invite you to join LiM and be a part of our international
community sharing ideas in inspiring talks and discussions.

The World of Photonics Congress
The WLT and its targets
The German Scientific Laser Society (WLT) is a non-profit
association, whose goal is to support the scientific aspects of
laser technology. Among the main targets are coordination of
scientific work,
work supporting national and international technology
transfer, consulting for national and European research
programs, stimulation of cooperation between its members,
helping setting up norms and targets in the field of laser
technology, and presenting laser technology to general public.
The World of Photonics Congress brings together a large
number of different conferences and meetings covering all
topics relevant to the development of modern laser and
photonic science and technology. In 2015 several joint
sessions will highlight topics at the interface of the thematic
areas covered by the participating conferences.
conferences This will
include ultrafast lasers and their applications in materials
processing, emerging areas in biophotonics, and metrology in
advanced optics. Joint sessions are especially marked in the
calls for papers and programs.
