Speaker guidelines:

  1. The aim of this program is to advance understanding of significant problems at the frontiers of intense laser physics. Your talk can help accomplish this by stimulating discussion of existing uncertainties and challenges that represent obstacles to further progress.

  2. Focus on a single topic, issue, or problem that you treat in some depth. We wish to avoid talks that present lists of recent results that are treated only superficially.

  3. Plan a talk of 30-60 minutes at most. Please expect questions or requests for clarifications during your presentation, which are expected to lengthen the total time of your presentation. Since not all participants will be knowledgeable of your topic, you are encouraged to present necessary background material.

  4. Since participants have widely varying backgrounds, tutorial talks on particular research topics relevant to our program are welcome.

  5. Normally KITP records all scheduled presentations, which are then available on its web page. If you do not wish your talk to be recorded, please let us know in advance.
