Preface, Electromagnetic and light scattering by nonspherical particles XVIII

Bi, L., M. Mishchenko, J. Wang, and P. Yang (2020), Preface, Electromagnetic and light scattering by nonspherical particles XVIII, J. Quant. Specrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 245, 106820, doi:10.1016/j.jqsrt.2019.106820.

The 18th Electromagnetic and Light Scattering Conference (ELS-XVIII) was held at the Zhejiang University, Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province, China during the week of 10–14 June 2019. This conference followed the previous highly successful meetings held in Amsterdam (1995) [1], Helsinki (1997) [2], New York (1998) [3], Vigo (1999), Halifax (2000) [4], Gainesville (2002) [5], Bremen (2003) [6], Salobreña (2005) [7], St.Petersburg (2006) [8], Bodrum (2007) [9], Hatfield (2008) [10], Helsinki (2010) [11], Taormina (2011) [12] , Lille (2013) [13], Leipzig (2015) [14], College Park (2017) [15], and College Station (2018) [16], as well as three closely related workshops held in Bremen (1996, 1998) and Moscow (1997). As with the other conferences, the main objective of the ELS- XVIII was to bring together scientists, engineers, postdocs, and PhD students studying diverse aspects of light scattering by particles and particle groups and thereby provide a stimulating at- mosphere for thorough and comprehensive discussions of scattering theory, measurements, and practical applications. The program and abstracts of conference presentations are available at the official conference web sites http://www.els-xviii-2019.org/home.html and https://www.giss.nasa.gov/staff/mmishchenko/ELS-XVIII.
