Travel information:

By plane: from the airports of Milano Linate or Milano Malpensa take shuttle buses to Central Station (about 20 min from Linate and one hour from Malpensa) from where there are trains to Varenna (direction Sondrio/Tirano)


By train: from Central Station take a train to Sondrio/Tirano direction and stop in Varenna (about one hour trip).

Download train timetable.

By car: from Milano take the road toward Lecco (SS36); when you get in Lecco pass through a long tunnel under the city. At the end of the tunnel you can:

An official program will be posted here closer to the time of the workshop
The forth international workshop and meeting on LII will combine technical presentations and discussions related to the scientific development of the laser-induced incandescence technique.

Arrival, Check-in / Registration, and Welcome:

Delegates are expected to arrive on Sunday, 18 April. Check-in for pre-registered delegates or registration will be possible in Villa Monastero during Sunday afternoon. Registration will also be possible on Monday 19 April, morning. A welcome get-together on Sunday evening is also planned. Further details will be made available closer to the time of the workshop.

Technical Presentations (Monday, April 19 - Tuesday, April 20):

Four technical sessions are planned during the workshop with the following main topics:

Session A - Soot properties and LII signal in standard flames

Optical properties; aggregation; coated particles; adsorbed PAH; property variations in flames and how they effect signals 

Session B - LII models and validation

Basic understanding and mechanisms; models comparison; models validation

Session C - Extending LII

Combining LII with other techniques; comparing LII to other techniques such as SMPS, PIMS, fluorescence; NOC; nascent soot particles; non-soot particles 

Session D - LII under various conditions

High/low pressure conditions; turbulent and technical flames; engines; environmental applications

Lake tour /Banquet dinner:

A short excursion and a social dinner are planned for Monday late afternoon and evening.


A number of rooms at special price are booked at the Royal Victoria Hotel. Delegates can directly contact the hotel for reservation specifying their attendance to the LII workshop.
