About ExHILP 2019
The third Extremely High Intensity Laser Physics Conference (ExHILP 2019) is hosted by the PULSE Institute and Department of Applied Physics at Stanford University and co-organized by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The conference combines theory, experiment and simulations of laser-matter and laser-vacuum interactions at the highest intensities. This year ExHILP is focusing on Strong Field Quantum Electrodynamics (SFQED) with applications to astrophysics and cosmology, high-luminosity colliders and physics beyond the standard model. Experiments will include PW-class laser interactions in plasmas, ultra-relativistic particle and high energy photon beams. Previous conferences were hosted in Heidelberg (2015) and Lisbon (2017).
Stanford University, Stanford, CA (USA)
September 3-6, 2019 (Tuesday morning to Friday early afternoon).

Please register here (via app.certain.com). Thanks to our sponsors the conference has no registration fee, if you register by August 15th, 2019. Late registration will be charged $150. A list of registered attendees can be found here.
Abstracts should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, June 24 (2019), late submissions considered until July 31; preferably a single page in Portable Document Format (PDF). LaTeX template: single column, two column. Please specify in your email whether you are applying for a contributed talk (12+3 minutes) or a poster (non-selected talks will be automatically considered for posters).
Update: Abstraction submission has now been extended to July 31. There is still room for posters and a limited number of contributed talks.
Slides should have standard 4x3 aspect ratio (not 16:9), posters should not be larger than 3 ft x 4 ft, e.g., A0 (2.8 ft x 3.9 ft).
Please email us if you need a letter of invitation.
