The International Conference on Laser Peening and Related Phenomena returns to its origins in the USA for the fifth conference in the series from May 10-15, 2015 in the vibrant and scenic Ohio river valley city of Cincinnati.
The conference will be held on the attractive campus of the University of Cincinnati in the Tangeman University Center, providing a range of amenities for delegates and their partners.
This conference, with its workshop-style approach of a single session and an emphasis on discussion and networking, will be enhanced in 2015 with a focus on industrial problems and applications.
There will be a new, dedicated section of the conference for industrial application of laser peening, alongside the basic phenomena of materials response and the development of laser systems for the future
The conference will have a satellite workshop on the modeling of laser peening using finite element techniques, in recognition of the intensive efforts in this area to optimize the application of laser peening to an increasing range of industrial materials and components.
Shuttles will take participants to and from the conference hotel, and there will be a program of events around the conference, including a visit to the National Museum of the United States Air Force and the conference dinner riverboat cruise on the Ohio river.
The conference will be organized into dedicated theme sessions comprising selected talks and an integrated poster session for detailed discussions and networking.
All poster authors will give a brief introduction to their poster before the relevant poster session.
Your registration fee covers all conference sessions, receptions, lunches, breaks, transport for the conference excursions and the conference dinner.
A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to selected students to attend and present papers at the conference.The main conference hotel is the Marriott Kingsgate Conference Hotel, which is close to the University conference venue.
We look forward to your participation in the conference and to seeing you in May 2015.
