The 14th international conference series on Laser-light and Interactions with Particles (LIP) - Optical Particle Characterization follow-up ! is organized by Xidian University  on September 18th-22nd, 2024, in Xi’an, Shaanxi, China.
The conference is focused on interactions between laser beams and particles, from theory to practice (download the flyer), encompassing in particular the following fundamental and applied topics :
- Beam shape description of laser/electromagnetic wave.
- Optical forces and other mechanical effects of light/laser/electromagnetic wave.
- Light/laser/electromagnetic scattering of complex particles and aggregates.
- Optical particle sizing and characterization methods.
- Light/electromagnetic wave propagation in complex media.
- Optical imaging with structured illumination (tissue, particles,…).
- AI-assisted analysis in light/electromagnetic scattering.
- Related applications in biology and biomedicine.
- Related applications in multiphase flow, aerosol science and atmospheric environment.
- Related applications nanoscience, plasma and soft matter physics.
Although the conference is mainly intended to deal with light/laser/electromagnetic wave, papers dealing with acoustical and quantum beams (scalar waves) relating with the topics of the conference are welcomed.

This conference series has been continually providing forums for promoting the interchange of new ideas on the development of advanced theories and models, as well as the latest experimental developments. Since nearly four decades this series, whose topics are continuously evolving, provides a source of state-of-the-art in light and shaped beam interactions with particle and particle systems. The present edition follows the former Optical Particle Sizing (OPS) and Optical Particle Characterization (OPC) conferences held in Rouen 1987; Tempe, AZ, 1990; Yokohama, 1993; Nürnberg, 1995; Minneapolis,MN,1998; Brighton, 2001; Kyoto, 2004; Graz, 2007 as well as the reformulated LIP conference, held in Rouen in 2012; Marseille, 2014; Xi'an 西安市, 2016, College Station, TX, 2018, and Warsaw in 2022.  (The 13th conference was postponed to 2022 due to the covid-19 pandemic, but the special issue was maintained! )

Vadim Markel
Vadim Markel earned an undergraduate degree in Physics with specialization in Quantum Optics from Novosibirsk State University in 1987. From 1987 through 1993, he worked at the Institute of Automation and Electrometry of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences conducting research in nonlinear and statistical optics. He received PhD in Physics (Optics) from New Mexico State University in 1996 and continued with postdoctoral studies in quantum many-body theory at the University of Georgia (1998-1999) and in inverse problems and imaging at the Washington University – St. Louis (1999-2001). He is currently an Associate Professor of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Markel has spent two years (2015-2017) as an A*MIDEX Excellence Chair at the University of Aix-Marseille and Institut Fresnel in France and a year (2018-2019) as a visiting scholar at the University of Michigan. He was selected as an Outstanding Referee by the APS (2016) and by the IoP (2018). Dr. Markel’s research spans optical physics and electromagnetic theory with applications to photonics and biomedical imaging.

Maxim A. Yurkin
Maxim A. Yurkin received his BS and MS degrees in physics from the Novosibirsk State University (NSU) with honors (2002, 2004), and dual PhD in computational science and biophysics from the University of Amsterdam and Voevodsky Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion (ICKC, Novosibirsk), respectively (2007). His research interests include the theory and simulations of electromagnetic scattering, the discrete dipole approximation (DDA), and inverse light-scattering problems. Specifically, he has made multiple important contributions to the theory and numerical efficiency of the DDA, and is the main developer of the open-source ADDA code. He received inaugural Young Scientist’s Award in electromagnetic and light scattering from Elsevier (2007) and two Prizes of the Academia Europaea for Russian young scientists (2010, 2016).

Instructions to Authors


  • Presentations
  • Procedure & deadlines
  • Submit an abstract
  • Special issue papers: JQRST
Three formats are scheduled for oral presentations (in-person or remote participation):
  • Keynote lectures (invited talks of 40 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions, in-person or remote),
  • Regular presentations (20 minutes of presentation plus 5 minutes for questions, in-person or remote)
  • Posters (special session with a best poster award, remote only, via the conference website)
For both oral and poster presentations (in-person or remote), authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of at least 1000 words and with a maximum of three pages, including supporting figures and references as appropriate. As there is necessarily a limited number of oral presentations, the scientific committee will make the final decision on the presentation format on the basis of two independent reviews plus the authors wish. At least one of the authors is required to register for the conference and the same person may only present a maximum of two oral presentations (no limit on the posters). All selected contributions will be published in the proceedings of the conference.
It is mandatory to use this MS-Word template (download) to prepare the extended abstract as there will be no real typesetting process. Fill also this MS-Excel sheet (download) to depict the abstract contains, the preferred presentation format and session, the authors affiliations,... All these data will be used for the review process as well to build the conference program and the list of participants. When ready, send these two files by email to the conference secretary: contact@lip-conference.org
  • Abstract submission opens ................... May 1st, 2023
  • Abstract submission ends...................... April 30th, 2024
  • Notification of abstract acceptance........ May 20th, 2024
Simply send by email your extended abstract (MS-Word file plus a pdf) and the related  information (Excel file) to the conference secretariat (contact@lip-conference.org)
Following the highly successful special issues previously published in the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (JQSRT) [2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022]   we will solicit papers for a LIP2024 Special Issue that you will want your state-of-the-art research to become part of yet another benchmark collection of papers on light and shaped beam interactions with particles and particle systems. This Special Issue will consist only of full-size papers documenting research either reported at the conference or pertaining to the main topics of LIP conferences.  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.  To expedite the communication of your research results to the scientific community, each paper will be officially published (including year, volume, and page numbers) as soon as it has been accepted, typeset, and proof-read. In other words, the authors of accepted manuscripts will see their papers officially published without having to wait for the rest of the manuscripts to get accepted. This accelerated publication protocol is a recent improvement in the JQSRT production process.
  • Gate will open:  July 1st, 2024
  • Code of the special issue: LIP2024/ Select as the Editor-in-Chief: Ping Yang
  • Guest editors: Gérard Gouesbet, Fabrice Onofri*, Han Yiping,  Guo Lixin.

  • About the city
    Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi province, located in the southern part of the Guanzhong Plain. With the Qinling Mountains to the north and the Weihe River to the south, it is in a favorable geographical location surrounded by water and hills. It has a semi-moist monsoon climate and there is a clear distinction between the four seasons. Except the colder winter, any season is relatively suitable for traveling.
    Called Chang’an in ancient times, Xi’an is one of the birthplaces of the ancient civilization in the Yellow River Basin area of the country. During Xi’an’s 3,100 year development, 13 dynasties such as Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang placed their capitals here. So far, Xi’an enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo, and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals.
