COLA 2021/2022
16th International Conference on Laser Ablation
Kunibiki Messe in Matsue, Japan
24 – 29 April, 2022


Sept. 2021

COLA 2021/2022 is currently scheduled to be held in a hybrid format, both onsite in Matsue and online. However, depending on the situation of COVID-19, it may be held completely online.

If you receive an email from Expo Hotel Services or a similar company claiming that they will help you to book hotel rooms in Matsue, it is a scam. Delete the mail and do not send your credit card details under any circumstances. The Organizing Committee has nothing to do with those companies. If you'd like to know the hotel information in Matsue City, please refer to the information from the city on our web page “Venue/Hotel Accommodation”.
