During the congress

Meeting rooms will be equipped for Power-Point presentation only. Be sure to bring your presentation on a pen drive and deliver it to the organizers’ speakers' room preferably the day before or at least two hours before your session. Personal lap-tops are not allowed. For your information, regular oral presentations will last 15 minutes ( 20 minutes for invited speakers) plus 5 minutes for discussion and poster format will be 120 cm high by 90 cm wide. 

Tutorial Session

The conference on Plasma Physics by Laser and Applications will include tutorial sessions on July 04, 2017 in Messina, Italy.

This tutorial day takes place before the official conference and should be focused on covering a well-defined topic concerning laser-matter interaction. Speakers from academic organizations and research infrastructures will present their latest projects and research activity.

Tutorials will start at the 9:00 am and each lesson will have a duration of 1 hour  (incluse then questions)  and participants from academic, commercial organizations and national and international facilities, will be expected.

The level of knowledge of the attending students will be intermediate and advanced.

A certificate of attendance will be released upon completion of the tutorial session.
