Our fourteenth meeting was held in Kauai, Hawaii at Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa during December 9th to 13th, 2015. A tributary presentation was given to the Honorary Chair of the symposium, Prof. Hirohiko Kono. This was followed by nine sessions covering the wide areas of rapidly growing interdisciplinary research fields of ultrafast intense laser science. We enjoyed the presentations made by the discussion leaders and invited speakers as well as by the stimulating discussions that followed all the presentations.

A total of 19 posters were presented during the poster sessions this year. In the Sponsors’ Sessions, presentations were given by seven sponsor companies, Thales Optronique, Amplitude Technologies, Horiba Jobin Yvon, Japan Laser Corporation, Fastlite, Femtolasers (now Spectra-Physics), and Coherent.

We believe the attendees enjoyed not only the scientific program but the island's pleasant weather and atmosphere. On behalf of the international organizing committee, we thank again all the invited participants, all attendees, and all the sponsor companies and organizations for having made the symposium both successful and enjoyable.

Sincerely yours,

Co-chairs of ISUILS14
