Joint Conference: Laser Symposium & ISAM 2023

November 29 – December 1, 2023 | Dresden & Online (Hybrid format)

For the twelfth time in a row, Laser Symposium 2023 brings together world's leading laser experts, end-users and newcomers from both industry and academia. With a focus on latest laser developments and their suitability for industrial applications, it offers an ideal platform for scientific and technical exchange on various aspects of laser materials processing.

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is becoming increasingly important for industrial applications. Fascinating engineering solutions paired with exciting economic benefits are strong drivers for R&D efforts worldwide. The International Symposium Additive Manufacturing (ISAM) highlights latest developments and challenges in additive manufacturing.

Combined into one joint conference, Laser Symposium and ISAM will provide a unique platform for the exchange of ideas and for industrial networking. As participant, you will benefit from overlaps in content and gain exciting insights into new topics.
