Extremely High-Intensity Laser Physics (ExHILP) conferencewill be held at Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon (Portugal) from 5th to 8th September 2017. This is a second edition of the conference first held in Heidelberg two years ago - more details about the first edition can be found here.
A distinguishing aspect of the conference is the attention devoted to students and young researchers. On one hand, apart from usual technical talks held by invited speakers, tutorial lectures by distinguished speakers will be devoted especially to explain the basic concepts and the principles of strong-field physics in a pedagogical way. On the other hand, an entire session will be dedicated to talks presented by students and young researchers together with a poster session. The conference will be free of charge i.e. no registration fee.
The following scientific topics will be the main focus of the conference:
- New High-Intensity Laser Facilities
- Ionization and Relativistic Atomic Physics
- Experimental Progresses in High-Intensity Laser-Matter Interaction
- Thomson and Compton Scattering, and Radiation Reaction
- Electron-Positron Pair Production
- Electromagnetic Cascades
- Exotic Physics with High-Intensity Lasers
