satellites to icpeac 2017 International Symposium on Ion-Atom Collisions 23-25 July 2017, Hotel Grand Chancellor, Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia


The 25th International Symposium on Ion-Atom Collisions (ISIAC) will be held in Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia on July 23-25, 2017. This follows earlier meetings in Rio de Janeiro (2005), Agios Nikolaos Crete (2007), Norfolk (2009), Caen (2011), Beijing (2013) and Barcelona (2015).

The International Symposium on Ion-Atom Collisions is a biennial satellite of the International Conference on Photonic, Electronic and Atomic Collisions (ICPEAC). In 2017 both events will be held in Australia. ISIAC will take place from the 23rd to the 25th of July, right before ICPEAC. We expect to attract about 60 participants from all over the world, giving them an opportunity to present and exchange detailed information at a smaller specialised meeting set. As usual, the symposium will cover all ion-atom collision phenomena including excitation, ionisation and charge transfer, from low to relativistic velocities as well as interactions of ions with surfaces, molecules and clusters.

The program includes invited and contributed talks as well as two poster sessions. Here is a list of main topics to be covered:

  • Fundamental processes in ion-atom and ion-molecule collisions
  • Ion-surface and ion-solid interactions
  • Fragmentation of molecules and clusters
  • Ion-biomolecule interactions
  • Laser-assisted collisions
  • Atomic collision processes
  • New developments, techniques and instrumentation
  • Applications, including hadron therapy

We look forward to welcoming you in Palm Cove!

On behalf of the local organising committee,

Alisher Kadyrov (Chair)
Igor Bray (Co-chair)
