The EMN meeting began in 2008 as a small workshop held at a traditional villa in Orland, Florida. Since then we have organized five successful workshops under the theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology. In honor of the 2008 Orlando conference, these workshops were grouped under a conference series entitled “Villa Conference”. The Villa Conference series have grown beyond the traditional villa setting and have had continued success in 2009 (St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands), 2010 (Santorini, Greece), 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada) , 2012 (Orlando, Florida) and 2013 (Houston, Texas).

As a special theme of the EMN series, the 2016 edition of the EMN Meeting on Ultrafast covers various fields, such as Photo-induced phase transitions and dynamics in solids, New trends in ultrafast magnetization dynamics, Fundamentals and applications of magneto-photonics, Ultrafast laser pulse, Femtobiology and so on. We hope to bring together leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world to exchange, share and learn the most interesting work done recently.

Last year, the EMN Meeting on Ultrafast Research had a success time at Las Vegas. This year, the conference will take place at Melbourne, Australia during the week of October 10th to 14th, 2016. Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Victoria. Melbourne has a temperate oceanic climate and is well known for its changeable weather conditions! Main attractions include the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, Royal Botanic Gardens, Federation Square and so on. It is home to many of Australia’s largest and oldest cultural institutions such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Library of Victoria and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building. We encourage you to give yourself some time for recreational pursuits!

We look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the EMN Meeting on Ultrafast 2016
