XXIst Symposium on Atomic, Cluster and Surface Physics 2018

February 11 - 16, 2018

Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, Austria


This international symposium is one in a continuing biennial series of conferences (the last one was held in 2016 in Davos, Switzerland) which seeks to promote the growth of scientific knowledge and effective exchange of information among scientists in the field of atomic, molecular, and surface physics and with a major focus on ion-molecule reactions. The symposium deals in particular with collisional interactions involving different types of collision partners, i.e. electrons, photons, molecules, nano particles, and surfaces. A special emphasis of this conference will be to provide room for discussion between academics and industry by a proper choice of lecturers.

There will be invited expert lectures covering recent advances in the topics of the Symposium. Contributed papers will be presented in two poster sessions. These poster sessions provide the main forum for presentation of new work and for discussion of recent progress. Prior to the official poster sessions there will be introductory sessions, which will give the authors of each contributed paper the opportunity to present orally highlights of their work presented on the poster. The max. poster size is A0 portrait.

A few of these contributions will be selected for oral presentation as Hot Topics.


We hope to see you in Obergurgl!
