It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 6th International Symposium on Filamentation (COFIL2016) which will be held in Quebec City, Canada, in September 2016.

COFIL 2016 is the 6th of a very successful series of biennial conferences bringing together scientists working in the field of ultrashort and intense laser filamentation and its applications. The conference also attracts scientists from other fields interested in discussing the present status and future perspectives of this topic.

The 2016 meeting aims to enhance awareness of current research activities and recent developments, draw attendance from leading professionals from all over the world and bring together a large representation of top-level scientists and researchers in this field. It is an opportunity for the whole community to meet, create new collaborations, share2technical information and build trustworthy relationships internationally.

This event will take place a few steps from Old Québec, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We are convinced you will enjoy the COFIL 2016 conference, as well as the numerous breathtaking attractions in Québec City.
