Dates | September 24 (evening) until September 27, 2017
The first conference of the triannual ICOMP series was held in Rochester in 1977. Budapest already hosts ICOMP for the second time, after having been the venue of the conference in 1980. As professors Yamanouchi and Midorikawa have formulated the importance of the ICOMP series recently, "This conference series has been essential in deepening of our understanding of multiphoton phenomena. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that the scientific basis of intense laser science in recent years has been established through the exchanges of ideas fostered by the ICOMP conferences." In 2017, ICOMP has the honour of welcoming Prof. Ferenc Krausz and Prof. Paul Corkum as keynote speakers, two of the founding fathers of attosecond science. The conference will be opened by Prof. Norbert Kroó, chair of the second ICOMP in 1980.
