Lund Attoscience Symposium 2021

Different times need equally different ways of communication. As students and postdocs at the Lund Attosecond Science Center we have realized how difficult the interaction between us researchers has been in the past year. Week-long online conferences turn out to be very demanding and virtual seminars are too short to start real discussions. Therefore, we would like to try a new format to share research results in specific areas of attosecond science, with a particular focus on very recent topics and questions.  Anyone interested in Attosecond science is welcome to join! 

The  Lund Attoscience Symposium 2021  will offer monthly  two-hour sessions  on Wednesdays from 16.00 to 18.00. Each session focuses on one aspect of attosecond science and consists of one keynote lecture in addition to three progress reports from early career researchers. In-between the talks we will have time for discussions during casual coffee breaks. With this symposium we want to offer a platform to share the latest advances (and problems) as we would discuss them in an informal atmosphere during a regular conference.
