The Laser and Plasma Accelerators Workshop 2025 (LPAW 2025) will be held at Hotel Continental Ischia, in the Ischia Island (Campania, Italy), from Monday 14 to Friday 18 April 2025.

The Laser and Plasma Accelerators Workshop (LPAW) series is one of the leading workshops in the field of plasma-based acceleration and radiation generation. It started in the 1990s, with the first edition held in Kardamili, Greece.

The latest editions were held in Algarve, Portugal (2023); Split, Croatia (2019); Jeju, Korea (2017) ; Guadeloupe, French Caribbean (2015); Goa, India (2013);and Wuzhen, China (2011). As is traditional in the LPAW series, also the 2025 edition will be in a friendly and relaxed environment with plenty of time for discussions.

The following scientific topics will be the main focus of the conference:

  • Plasma-based lepton acceleration (experiments, simulations, theory, diagnostics...).
  • Plasma-based ion acceleration (experiments, simulations, theory, diagnostics...).
  • Secondary radiation generation and applications (experiments, simulations, theory, diagnostics...).

John Dawson Thesis Prize

“John Dawson Thesis Prize” is awarded on a biannual basis to the best PhD thesis in the area of plasma accelerators driven by laser or particle beams. The prize will be awarded for fundamental (theoretical or experimental) or applied aspects.

Each prize winner will receive a certificate of merit, up to 500 Euros, and financial support to attend the “Laser and Plasma Accelerators Workshop,” where the prize will be awarded.

Arrivals are expected on Sunday April 13th.

Departures are expected on Saturday April 19th.
