We are pleased to announce Ultrafast Optics XII, the 12th conference in this series, which will be held October 6–11, 2019. In keeping with the long tradition of hosting UFO in attractive locations, we are delighted to invite you to Bol on the Island of Brač, Croatia.

We are building a stimulating program to reflect the most recent advances in ultrafast optical science and technology. The conference topics include:

• Generation of ultrashort optical pulses from lasers
• Parametric oscillators and amplifiers of ultrashort pulses
• Ultrahigh peak-power laser systems and related technologies
• High average power ultrafast lasers
• High harmonic and attosecond pulse generation technology and science
• Novel methods for shaping and measuring ultrashort pulses
• Few-cycle pulses, carrier-envelope phase control
• Coherent beam combining and pulse synthesis
• Ultrashort x-ray pulses; generation, characterization, and synchronization of XFELs
• Ultrafast laser applications that drive technology advancements and innovation

The abstract submission deadline is May 15, 2019.

We look forward to welcoming you in Bol, Croatia!
