Map updated
We put the two ways for going to B&B Hotel
(from Métro Cité Scientifique - from the Conference Place)

IMPORTANT DEADLINE : The registration (step 2) to be done by May 31st, 2013

Because of a record-setting number of submitted abstracts, there will be a full day of oral presentations on Friday, June 21. This will allow us to avoid notorious parallel sessions. We strongly encourage you to schedule your travel accordingly and plan to attend the Friday afternoon sessions intentionally composed of the more interesting talks.

Step 1 :
Fill out the pre-registration form by entering your personal information as well as your participant category (tarification list).
There are 4 categories :

1) Regular participant (350 € registration fee)
2) Local participant (350 € registration fee)
3) Supported participant (0 € registration fee)
4) Accompanying person (50 € banquet and social events fee)
Step 2 :
An email will be sent to you with your pre-registration status and instructions how to finalize your registration and pay the registration fee.

Following the well-established ELS practice, we are pleased to solicit papers for a special issue of the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (JQSRT) and hope that you will want your state-of-the-art research to become part of yet another benchmark collection of papers on electromagnetic scattering and related topics.

This special issue will consist only of full-size papers documenting research either reported at the conference or pertaining to the main topics of ELS-XIV. Extended abstracts of conference presentations will not be considered. Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by at least two independent referees to ensure that all accepted manuscripts satisfy the highest standards of scientific quality adopted for JQSRT. Again, this will be a special topical issue of JQSRT rather than a conference proceedings.

To expedite the communication of your research results to the scientific community at large, our goal is to have the entire special issue published in less than 12 months after the conference. This implies a tight review and production schedule. The JQSRT web site will be set up to accommodate ELS-XIV submissions as early as 10 August 2013. The submission deadline is 15 October 2013.

You can submit your manuscript by going to :

You will need to register in order to create a personal account unless you have it already. The submission process it quite straightforward, but one aspect of it is especially important. Specifically, please select the paper category called “ELS-XIV” to make sure that your manuscript is flagged as an ELS-XIV submission and is not misplaced.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to your high-quality submissions!

The 14th Electromagnetic and Light Scattering Conference will be held in Lille, France from 17 to 21 of June 2013. ELS-XIV is built on the remarkable success of the previous ELS conferences held in Amsterdam, Helsinki, New York, Vigo, Halifax, Gainesville, Bremen, Salobreña, St. Petersburg, Bodrum, Hatfield, Helsinki, and Taormina, as well as on the highly positive outcome of the meetings on polarimetry of light scattering media supported by the NATO Advanced Study Institute and held in Yalta and Kyiv. The main objective of the conference is to bring together scientists and engineers studying various aspects of light scattering and to provide a relaxed atmosphere for in-depth discussions of theoretical advances, measurements, and applications.


The specific topics that will be covered include (but are not limited to) the following :
  • new theoretical developments and numerical simulations of light scattering by nonspherical and morphologically complex particles and particle groups
  • laboratory and field experiments in light scattering by natural and artificial particles
  • single and multiple light scattering by cloud and aerosol particles in the terrestrial atmosphere
  • single and multiple scattering of light in various astrophysical objects
  • light scattering in densely packed particulate media
  • near-field and coherent effects in light scattering
  • optical trapping and manipulation
  • micro and nano-optics
  • applications of light scattering in remote sensing, particle detection, laboratory and field particle characterization
  • applications of light scattering methods in biology and biomedicine
  • light scattering methods to control material properties and technological applications
