The city of Szeged is proud to have been chosen as the site of one of the four pillars of a massive European laser project entitled ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure). The construction of ELI-ALPS (Attosecond Light Pulse Source), a facility dedicated to ultrashort laser pulses, has entered its final stretch. Apart from breaking new ground in the study of very fast atomic and molecular processes, it is also expected to bring about improvements in medicine and life sciences. It is now the fifth time the University of Szeged has organised the summer school entitled Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences (LAMELIS) with the aim of discussing and disseminating the implications of these developments. Encouraged by the feedback we have received on the quality of the talks and the atmosphere of the previous events, we are committed to maintaining the tradition, so we announce LAMELIS again this year. The LAMELIS 2018 summer school will be held between 11th and 20th July.
The summer school is open to both medical students and physics students. Although the theoretical depth of talks is tailored for medical students, the programme can also benefit physics students as they can learn of medical applications of lasers directly from distinguished experts of the field and receive first-hand information on the current status of ELI-ALPS.
