This year XX ISIAC will also host the SPARC
topical meeting on Electron spectrometry in the
New Experimental Storage Ring (NESR) which will
take place right after the traditional ISIAC meeting
is over, on the morning of Saturday August 4.
All XX ISIAC participants are encouraged to attend
free of charge.
The SPARC - Stored Particles Atomic physics Research Collaboration
- has been formed within the project FAIR - Facility for Antiproton
and Ion Research – to be built at GSI, Darmstadt - Germany.
The aim of this collaboration is to bring together expertise
in atomic physics with highly charged ions at the international
level and to address a broad variety of atomic physics experiments
from fundamental physics to applications in Quantum Electrodynamics,
Strong Fields and Ion -Matter Interactions.
The particular SPARC topical meeting on Electron
spectrometry in the NESR is organized by the SPARC
electron spectrometers group. Presentations
will include review talks on conversion/Auger
electron and positron emission processes in relativistic
high-Z few electron ion-atom collisions and progress
reports on the NESR and the proposed magnetic
spectrometers. The session will close with a discussion
of future scientific and practical organizational
