LANET posterLasers are crucial for the successful operation and continuous optimization of particle accelerators. To address this and to bring the laser and accelerator communities together LA³NET is organizing an advanced school on laser applications that is open for participants from within and outside the network.

This international School will develop the topics covered in the introductory level School held at GANIL in 2012, building to a more advanced level of understanding.

Renowned lecturers from outside the network will be engaged to complement partner expertise to cover topics such as:
* Introduction to lasers, accelerators and FELs
* Laser ion, electron and x-ray sources
* Laser acceleration
* Laser based beam diagnostics
* Industrial applications.

In addition to the lectures there will be study groups, a poster session with industry displays, an interactive panel session and evening seminars including outreach. There will also be opportunities for discussion and networking during a tour of the CLPU facilities and at evening events. The school will be hosted by the Centre for Ultrashort Ultraintense Pulsed Lasers (CLPU), held at the University of Salamanca, organized by the LA³NET consortium and sponsored by Laserlab-Europe.


Several scholarships for early stage researchers outside the network will be available. The scholarships will cover the cost of the school including accommodation in shared rooms but recipients will have to arrange and pay for their own travel costs to the event.

The deadline for receiving scholarship application forms (see Material) is 31 May 2014 and all applicants will be informed of the decision on awarding them a scholarship by 30 June. The decision of the project panel will be final.

The cost for attending the workshop is €800 (€700 for LA³NET fellows) and the deadline for registration and payment is 29 August 2014.
