After a very successful 1st edition in Dolní Břežany (Czech Republic) in 2016, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the ELI Summer School (ELISS 2017), which will be hosted by ELI–Nuclear Physics and held in the period 27 August – 1 September 2017 in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania.

Scope and topics:

The aim of the ELI Summer School (ELISS) is to offer Ph.D. students, post-docs and young researchers an introductory training in the main topics of the extreme light research and applications undertaken at the three pillars of ELI (ELI-ALPS, ELI-Beams and ELI-NP), from ultrahigh power laser research and laser-based plasma physics, to particle acceleration, study of fundamental radiation-matter interactions, nuclear photonics and attoscience. The lectures will be delivered by highly-recognized specialists in the field, starting from a basic level while also highlighting the latest experimental and theoretical advances and most recent applications. Junior participants registered at the school are strongly encouraged to share their own research interests with the other participants by presenting a poster in a dedicated poster session.

Following-up on the tradition of the ELI-related conferences established some years ago with LEI 2009 and LEI 2011, the International Conference on Extreme Light provides a unique opportunity to bring together the community of ELI users at large in a single scientific event.

This is the second of a regular series of conferences. The first event has been successfully organized in 2015 in Bucharest, Romania. ICEL 2017 is co-organized by the Extreme Light Infrastructure - Delivery Consortium (ELI-DC AISBL) and the Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) - the Hungarian pillar of ELI. The event will take place at the ELI-ALPS site in Szeged, Hungary.

Application fields covered:

  • Attosecond Physics
  • Ultrafast dynamics
  • FELs and other advanced accelerator technologies
  • Plasma physics
  • Nuclear physics
  • Materials science
  • Biological and medical applications

Instrumentation & Methods covered:

  • Novel high-power laser technologies
  • Laser-driven secondary radiation sources - from THz to the X-rays
  • Laser-based particle (electrons, positrons, ions, neutrons) sources
  • High-brightness gamma beams
  • Time-resolved methods
  • ELI research facilities
