FLAIR 2020 is the 7th edition of the international conference series Field Laser Applications in Industry and Research, initiated in 2007 by Francesco D'Amato and Peter Werle. It aims to bring together researchers from both industrial and academic research laboratories and institutions to stimulate new research initiatives and field laser applications involving sensitive and selective detection of molecular species with a broad interdisciplinary approach.

FLAIR provides overview lectures by international experts, emphasizing integrative and multi-disciplinary approaches. Talks and posters will be presented by laser detection specialists, but also by researchers active in one of the fields of application (atmospheric monitoring, industrial process control, biomedicine, combustion science, etc.) who are highly familiar with the measurement challenges in an industrial or research setting, but may have limited knowledge of laser-based solutions. Special industry sessions and an exhibition enable our industrial partners to highlight recent progress of commercial systems. The social events help to foster an atmosphere in which it is easy to discuss and interact with researchers across different disciplines.

Lyon-Valpré is conveniently located on the north-west outskirts of the city of Lyon, close to the base of the French Alps, Grenoble, and Geneva. Or, if you prefer, centered between the wine regions of Bourgogne, Haut-Savoie, and la Vallée du Rhône. The city of Lyon is world-renowned for, among other things, its cultural heritage, modern musea, and gastronomy. The convention center is located on the hills of Ecully, overlooking the center of Lyon from its green park. It provides 116 single, twin and family hotel rooms on its premises, with good alternatives at about 12 min walking distance. This should enable maintaining the concept of FLAIR of staying in the same place to maximize interaction in an informal atmosphere and to create a core group for furthering Laser Applications in Industry and Research as a cross-disciplinary field of research.
