The XXII edition of the Symposium on High Power Laser Systems and Applications went great!

101 delegates from 16 countries and 4 continents: that is, a truly international participation.

51 oral and 27 poster presentations.

Two SPIE awards for the best poster and best oral presentation by under 35 speakers.

Most important, we enjoyed a friendly and collaborative atmosphere, facilitated by the splendid scenery of Villa Mondragone and by the creative discussions during the rich coffee breaks and lunches.

The XXII HPLS&A is done and dusted. But the ideas and connections delegates shared live on.

My special thanks to the Local Organizing Committee, to the efficient secretarial work of Monica Cimino and Elisa Polini, to the tireless Flavio Miglietta, to Sarah Bollanti, Daniele Murra and Gian Piero Gallerano. And thanks to all the participants: see you in 2020, Prague, for the XXIII HPLS&A!
