Eighth International Conference on Atomic and Molecular Data and Their Applications (ICAMDATA 2012)

ICAMDATA 2012 continues the series of international conferences since 1997 that promotes the use of atomic and molecular data in various fields of science and technology, and provides a forum for interaction of producers and users of such data. The conference will focus on the following topics:

I. Applications of and needs for atomic and molecular data:

  • Astrophysics and atmospheric physics
  • Magnetic and inertial fusion
  • Laboratory and industrial plasmas
  • Lighting science and technology
  • Biomedicine and biophysics
  • Combustion and environmental sciences and technology
  • Surface physics, gaseous electronics, solid state optics and spectroscopy, optoelectronics, etc.

II. Atomic and molecular data collections, assessment and dissemination:

  • Data collection and selection, critical evaluation, estimate of uncertainties
  • Databases, data exchange and dissemination
  • Data center activities, standardization of data formats

III. Experimental and theoretical atomic and molecular data generation:

  • Atomic and molecular structure and spectroscopy
  • Electron and photon collisions with atoms and molecules
  • Heavy particle collisions
  • Particle - surface interactions

The scientific program will include invited talks, a panel discussion, and posters. Both experimental and theoretical contributions will be welcome.
