ALPA2: Applying Laser-driven Particle Acceleration

The workshop 'Applying Laser-driven Particle Acceleration: Using Distinctive Energetic Particle and Photon Sources' represented the 2nd ALPA meeting and took place on 2-3 April 2019 in the framework of the SPIE.Optics+Optoelectronics in Prague. It built on the previous SPIE conference, ‘Medical
Applications of Laser-Generated Beams of Particles’; notably by extending its scope while continuing to assess the potential for medical applications in a dedicated session along with laser and source requirements, relevant radiobiology and diagnostic development. The Workshop addressed potential applications of the distinctive secondary sources emerging from burgeoning multipetawatt era science and technology where trends can rapidly evolve and synergies can be important.
