*FLAIR  :    ['flar, 'fler] 

Etymology: French, literally, sense of smell, from Late Latin flagrare

(Sense of "special aptitude", perhaps from notion of a hound's ability to track scent. )



Dear friends and colleagues !

You are invited to be part of a new international conference to bring various fields of applied research together. "Field Laser Applications in Industry and Research" are a growing and vital discipline and will benefit from developing an integrative approach and fostering an environment where researchers and  industry can talk, listen and develop integrative projects on all aspects of spectroscopic analysis. We aim to stimulate new research initiatives and field laser applications with a broad interdisciplinary approach. FLAIR 2007 is intended to provide the launching pad for future meetings. FLAIR will bring our research aims together, and will allow not only the traditional horizontal  but also vertical networking among different applications and scientific disciplines.

A glance at the list of topics and keywords will show you that the mainstay of FLAIR is a series of sessions with reviews and overview lectures by international experts emphasizing integrative and multidisciplinary approaches. We intend to attract not only specialists, but also people, who know quite well measurement challenges in industry and research, but may have only little knowledge about laser based solutions. In this context the industry session and the exhibition play an important role for the meeting. In addition, posters and oral presentations will take place. Posters will remain in place throughout the meeting. The conference will be held from September 2-7, 2007 at the Demidoff Hotel in the hills of Mugello overlooking  Florence. We have ensured you will have the opportunity to discover history and art in Florence and enjoy Tuscan cuisine. Part of the concept of FLAIR is for everybody to stay at the same place, to maximize interaction in an informal atmosphere and create a core group for furthering  Laser Applications in Industry and Research as a cross-disciplinary science.

So join with us and make FLAIR the first in a long series to come !

Francesco D´Amato  and   Peter W. Werle
