Williamsburg, Va, USA

The 6th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication-Science and Applications (LPM 2005) will be held April 4-8, 2005, in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. This year's symposium is hosted by Jefferson Laboratory (JLab), home of the world's first high Average Power (KW class), MHz Pulse Rate UV-IR-THz Free Electron Laser (FEL) Facility, designed for Material Processing. A visit to JLab and the FEL, located in Newport News, Virginia is scheduled.

Aim and Scope
Miniaturization and high precision are rapidly becoming a requirement on many industrial processes and products. As result, there is greater interest in the use of laser microfabrication approaches to achieve these goals. The International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM) is annually held to provide a forum for research and technology development in the area of laser micro/nanofabrication. The topics encompass novel developments in hardware, software and in the fundamental chemistry/physics that buttress laser material interaction process. The unique aspect of this conference is the interchange between fundamental research and industrial applications.

LPM is held in Japan on even years and in other host countries on odd years. To date, LPM has been successfully hosted in Omiya/Japan (2000), Singapore/Singapore (2001), Osaka/Japan (2002), Munich/Germany(2003), and Nara/Japan (2004).

The aim of LPM2005 is to provide a forum for discussion on the fundamental aspects of laser/material interaction, the state of the art of laser materials processing and in the germination of next-generation ideas that arises from collaborating scientists, end users and laser manufacturers. The LPM2005 Proceedings will be published on line. We extend a welcome and hope that you will join us at LPM2005.

Two hundred years ago, Williamsburg was Virginia's colonial capital and a catalyst for American independence and democracy. Today, Colonial Williamsburg is a living, working 18th century town as well as a world-class cultural and historical institution.
