Major Goals This award supported a mid-scale scientific conference that brought together experts, graduate students, and early-career scientists working in the field of electromagnetic scattering. Broadly, the purpose of this conference was to provide a forum for participants from a worldwide venue to present cutting-edge advances in theoretical and experimental topics related to sensing and characterization of aerosol chemistry and microphysics. The conference featured reviews from subject-matter experts as invited speakers, contributed oral and poster presentations covering substantial scientific advances, and discussions at-large among the participants that has spurred collaborations.Accomplishments The main objective of this conference was to assemble scientists, engineers, and PhD students researching various aspects of electromagnetic scattering by particles and particle groups and to provide a stimulating atmosphere for in-depth discussions of theory, measurements, and applications. The conference featured 143 presentations by 132 registered participants from 18 countries. The program and the abstracts of conference presentations are available at the official conference web site httpswww.giss.nasa.govstaffmmishchenkoELS-XVI .
