Mar. 9, 2018   Abstract submission
Abstract submission is postponed to Mar. 9, 2018. Welcome to submit abstract and full-paper.

Aims & Background
   International symposium series on High Power Laser Science and Engineering(HPLSE) is held every two years, aiming at bringing together world-wide scientists and engineers working on high power laser and physics. In 2016, the 2nd HPLSE symposium (HPLSE2016) was successfully held in Suzhou, China.
