Oral presentations

15 abstracts have been selected for oral presentation. Each speaker have 20 minutes time slots including time for questions. We encourage all speakers to plan their presentations to accommodate ~15 minutes leaving ample time for questions and discussions. Presenters who have expressed their interest of showing a poster on the material of their talk may prepare such a poster or print selected parts of their presentation. The purpose of this option is to make it easier to discuss the results with the authors after the talk. The poster/slides on the talks will be available on a separate location not to be mixed up with the regular poster presentations.


The posters should be put up in the morning of Monday June 9th and stay up until lunch on Wednesday June 11th. The poster board format is a height of 120 cm and a width of 75 cm. Material for poster mounting will be available. You are welcome to prepare a short introduction to your poster at the poster advertisement session on June 9. Such presentation by you is optional but we encourage you to do so. If you want to give a three-minute introduction to your poster you must use the attached template consisting of one title page, one page giving a motivation and methodology, and one slide with results. You must send this presentation to at latest on June 5! We will arrange all poster presentations in one long sequence, and the posters will be presented in a seamless way (without loss of time in between presentations).

Discussion sessions

There will be 6 discussion sessions at the workshop covering various aspects of LII (see below). Each of these have one main organiser which will be responsible for preparing the content presented at the session and moderate the discussions. In order to fill the sessions with interesting material, we invite everyone to submit contributions to the sessions. Such contributions can be results of interest for the specific topic (Think broad: This can be published or unpublished, finalised or work-in-progress) but it can also be open questions and/or hypothesis/argumentation on a certain subject. Please provide the material as Powerpoint slides using the attached template. The title page is mainly used for the organisers to keep track of the contributors. The submission should be sent to the session organiser directly, and it is then the responsibility of the session organiser to compile a Powerpoint presentation for the whole session where the submitted contributions are included.

The discussion sessions

1. Measurements in LII standard flames
Organizer: Klaus-Peter Geigle (
Overview of LII relevant information measured in the LII standard flames (focus) and trend studies, i.e. change of burner material, measurement location in flame, or other parameters.

2. Determination of key parameters for LII
Organizer: Stefan Will (
Experimental/numerical/theoretical contributions to the determination of key parameters for LII such as accommodation coefficient, complex index of refraction/absorption function, etc.

3. LII of emitted and ambient soot
Organizer: Kevin Thomson (
Experimental/numerical/theoretical activities, issues, and best practices of LII applied to non-volatile particulate matter (soot, black carbon) emitted from combustion processes as an exhaust or after it has evolved in the atmosphere.

4. Combined techniques
Organizer: Silvana de Iuliis (
Experimental and numerical approaches on the combination of LII with optical (scattering, emission, absorption, etc...) and/or non-optical diagnostics (TEM analysis, photoacoustic, etc). Burning issues to gain more insight on the comprehension of the technique and on the soot optical properties. 

5. Non-soot LII
Organizer: Christof Schulz (
Fundamental experiments and simulation (optical properties, accommodation coefficients, fluence dependence) on non-soot particles/new application of LII to non-soot particles/LII combined with other laser-induced emission signals or scattering, etc.

6. LII modeling
Organizer: Hope Michelsen (
Theoretical modeling of the LII process. The latest developments with regards to the model descriptions of the heat-up process involved in LII will be discussed.
