Conference on Electromagnetic and Light Scattering by Nonspherical Particles:
Theory, Measurements, and Applications

The ELS conference series combines two series: the Workshop on Electromagnetic and Light Scattering (Bremen, 1996; Moscow, 1997; Bremen, 1998) and the Workshop on Light Scattering by Nonspherical Particles (Amsterdam, 1995; Helsinki, 1997; New York, 1998). The first combined conferences were held in Vigo, Spain in 1999, in Halifax, Canada in 2000 and in Gainesville, Florida in 2002.
The conference encompasses all experimental and theoretical aspects of single and multiple scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical and heterogeneous particles.

The primary aim is to highlight and summarize the rapid advancements in the field, including measurement approaches, knowledge of characteristic nonspherical features in scattering patterns, retrieval and remote sensing techniques, nonspherical particle sizing, and numerical methods for computing electromagnetic scattering by nonspherical particles.
