Welcome to Messina, Sicily

The first PPLA conference was held in Messina (2003), then in Giardini Naxos (ME), Scilla (RC), Messina, Catania, Lecce and Frascati (Rome), reporting latest developments in the field of laser matter interaction and its applications.



The Scientific Program of the conference will consist of invited talks and contributed presentations, either in the form of oral presentations and posters.

The hard core of participants coming from the Czech Republic, Poland and Russia the excellent partners and sponsors (University of Messina, Pisa, Salento, Center of Accelerators and Nuclear Analytical Methods (CANAM), Enea Research Centre) and interesting invited talks as well as promising oral presentations reveal the capability of this conference to promote stimulating discussions, new collaborations and participation of students as well as experienced researchers.

We would like to continue the tradition and hope that you will join the conference according to this inspiration.

Looking forward to meet you at PPLA 2017
