ICALEO 2020 will be a Virtual Experience

ICALEO 2020 will be a Virtual Experience

Due to the ongoing uncertainty in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the potential future impact on travel, LIA has decided to transition ICALEO 2020 to a fully virtual conference experience in October for the first time in our conference’s 38-year history. The health and safety of our members, speakers, attendees, and staff is of paramount importance and we feel this is the safest path forward.

While the overall virtual conference format is currently under development, the end result will likely be a revised, shortened format. Our ICALEO Program Committee is dedicated to evaluating all submissions and cultivating the highest quality and most relevant content for this new model. In light of this, we are asking for your continued patience as these developments evolve. Please look for your speaker notification via email by no later than Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

For Peer Reviewed submissions, the annual ICALEO Peer Review process for publication in the Journal of Laser Applications will move forward as planned. Amended deadline dates and Peer Review process instructions will accompany your acceptance notification.


Also, in keeping with tradition, accepted author abstracts and /or manuscripts will be included in the online ICALEO 2020 Conference Proceedings and made available to all registered attendees.


LIA remains deeply grateful for your contributions to the knowledge base of our industry. Further details will be communicated as they are finalized and will be provided here.

If you have any questions in the interim, please contact the conferences department at icaleo@lia.org.
