COLA 2021
16th International Conference on Laser Ablation
Kunibiki Messe in Matsue, Japan
19 – 24 September, 2021


Nov. 2020

As your health and safety are our top priority, the organizing committee of COLA 2021 has been continuously and carefully monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and potential impacts on COLA2021 in Matsue, Japan in 19 – 24 September, 2021. At present, the preparation for COLA 2021 has been proceeding on the original schedule. However, depending on the future situation, the organizing committee may take the following option.

1st Option: Reschedule to 24 – 29 April, 2022 in Matsue, Japan
2nd Option: Change to an online conference in 24 – 29 April, 2022

In spring of 2021, the organizing committee plans to make a decision on whether COLA 2021 is rescheduled to 24 – 29 April 2022 in Matsue, Japan (1st Option). However, if we still face to the difficulty in holding an on-site conference after the rescheduling, the organizing committee may make a further decision that COLA 2021 takes place as an online conference (2nd Option). We update this website to keep you informed.
