7th High-Power Laser Workshop

September 26-27, 2019
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Menlo Park, CA

The 7th HPL Workshop will be held co-jointly with the general LCLS Users Meeting to discuss recent progress in the field of high-energy density physics enabled by the Matter in Extreme Conditions instrument at LCLS. During the first day of the workshop the attendees are encouraged to take part in the general LCLS Users Meeting and further have technical sessions related to LCLS-II and the MEC instrument. The second day of the workshop is dedicated to presentations of recent experimental results from MEC users during Run 17 and a poster session to encourage discussion and exchange of future ideas in our field. The goal is to discuss the scientific opportunities at the MEC instrument, propose future standard configurations, and provide time to discuss important physics proposals and experimental needs for cutting-edge high-energy density physics at LCLS. 

The workshop will provide opportunities for presentations by students and postdocs. Limited travel funds are available. For more information please contact Nitssia Harrison at

Sponsor exhibits will be on display throughout the duration of the workshop.

Foreign Nationals are required to provide site entry documents, please email Nitssia Harrison at for details.  Those that cannot provide these documents will experience long delays due to a large number of participants.
