The 9th International Conference on Ultrahigh Intensity Lasers (ICUIL 2022) will be held in the Jeju island in Korea from Sep. 18th to 23rd in 2022. Jeju is a beautiful volcanic island - the most attractive tourist spot in Korea.

Since its inception in 2004, the ICUIL conference has served as the representative venue for reporting the research progress and communicating among researchers in the area of ultrahigh intensity laser science and technology. Through the ICUIL conferences in the past one and a half decades, we have witnessed the increase of laser intensity by more than several orders of magnitude, reaching an extreme intensity of about 10²³ W/cm², and the corresponding expansion in the applications of ultrahigh intensity lasers from relativistic laser plasma interactions to strong-field quantum electrodynamics. In ICUIL 2022, in addition to the continued progress in the field, we expect to see groundbreaking results produced with multi-PW lasers around the world, of which proliferation was witnessed in ICUIL 2018 held in Lindau, Germany. Moreover, we want to celebrate the recent public recognition of our research area, marked by the 2018 Nobel Physics Prize given to Gerard Mourou (the first chair of ICUIL) and Donna Strickland for their invention of chirped pulse amplification, the very basis of our research on ultrahigh intensity lasers. We hope that ICUIL 2022 becomes a festive venue in which the community shares the emergence of pioneering science characterized by unprecedented physical parameters.

The conference is organized by Center for Relativistic Laser Science (CoReLS), Institute for Basic Science (IBS), Korea, and the title of IBS Conference on Ultrahigh Intensity Lasers (ICUIL 2022) is used in parallel.
