A Joint Task Force on Future Applications of Laser Acceleration, has been formed to develop a roadmap for laser technology for future accelerators. The taskforce is operating under the umbrella of ICFA (International Committee for Future Accelerators) and ICUIL (International Committee on Ultra-High Intensity Lasers). A first workshop was organized by the Task Force on April 8-10 (2010) at GSI (Darmstadt), with invited experts on high power laser technology as well as accelerator technology. The main topics were the laser performance needed for accelerator technology to support the most challenging present and future accelerator needs, as well as questions of laser architecture, laser material and optical components. Accelerator and light source representatives outlined the top level laser requirements for potential laser-based accelerator applications, i.e. colliders, light sources and medical applications. An overview of the outcome of this workshop will be presented, including a discussion on laser requirements for acceleration of electrons and ions.
