2. COST-IOTA Workshop on Cold Molecular Ions

Molecular Ions in Arosa

Workshop programme and updated travel information available.

As part of ESF COST Action Ion Traps for Tomorrows Applications (IOTA) this workshop will bring together experts on molecular ions in traps to discuss recent advances in cooling, spectroscopy and cold chemistry of molecular ions. The workshop will take place in Arosa in South-East Switzerland from Sept. 2 to 5, 2013. The venue can be conveniently reached by train via Chur.

This workshop follows the successfull first COST-IOTA workshop that was held in Sandbjerg, Denmark in 2011.
