satellites to icpeac 2017 (e,2e), Double Photo-ionization & Related Topics Polarization and Correlation in Electronic & Atomic Collisions August 2-4, Hotel Grand Chancellor, Palm Cove, Australia


The International Symposium on (e,2e), Double Photo-ionization and Related Topics and the 19th International Symposium on Polarization and Correlation in Electronic and Atomic Collisions will be held in Hotel Grand Chancellor, Palm Cove, Australia, from August 2nd to August 4th 2017. Both symposia are official satellite meetings of ICPEAC 2017. The previous conference was held in San Sebastian.

The scientific program will include plenary lectures for all participants in both symposia plus quite a few invited talks arranged in parallel sessions. Oral contributions and poster sessions will be scheduled as well.


The merging of the two symposia into a single scientific event provides the opportunity to attend high-level specialized talks covering a broad range of hot topics in atomic and molecular physics. Among others, the following areas of research will be discussed:

  • Many-body interactions and electron-electron correlation effects in single and multiple ionization processes.
  • Alignment and polarization effects in excitation and charge transfer processes.
  • Correlation and polarization effects in multiphoton ionization of atoms and molecules
  • Correlations and coherence in the interaction of intense and short-pulsed radiation with gas-phase species.
  • Correlated motion in photodissociation processes
  • Coherence effects in multielectron excitation
