Abstract: Laser-driven plasma acceleration is now being considered world-wide
as a promising technique for the development of a new class of particle accelerators.
The INFN-PLASMONX project aims at exploring this scenario using ultra-short
laser pulses of the 0.3 PW, Ti:Sa laser system FLAME (Frascati Laser for Acceleration
and Multidisciplinary Experiments). A self-injection test experiment (SITE)
is being designed and set up to study electron acceleration at the sub GeV energy
level. In this paper we describe the planned experiment, including the numerical
modelling, the main plasma diagnostics and the electron spectrometer.
