August 1-4
Agios Nikolaos, Crete

The Bay of Mirabello with the venue hotel and town of Agios Nikolaos in the back

Traditionally, this is a two-day biennial satellite meeting taking place right after ICPEAC usually attracting about 60-90 participants from all over the world. It gives the participants an opportunity to present and exchange detailed information at a smaller specialized meeting set in a congenial and personalized atmosphere.

The symposium covers all ion-atom collision phenomena including excitation, ionisation, multiple ionisation and capture reactions from sub-thermal to relativistic velocities as well as interactions of highly charged ions with surfaces, molecules and clusters.

Additionally, this year's XX ISIAC will also include the SPARC topical meeting on Electron Spectrometry in the New Experimental Storage Ring (NESR). Organized by the SPARC electron spectrometers group, it will include a special session on electron and positron emission processes in relativistic high-Z few-electron ion-atom collisions. The NESR is planned to be built soon at GSI-Darmstadt under the FAIR/SPARC initiative.

The venue hotel is the MIRABELLO Beach Hotel at Agios Nikolaos, Crete at which the talks and posters will be presented. Special preferential rates for ISIAC participants have been secured for all official conference accomodations. Agios Nikolaos (literally Saint Nicholas -- pronounced Ayios Nikolaos but also many times spelled as Aghios Nikolaos) is a small picturesque town on the north coast of Crete about 70km east of Heraklion, the main port of entry.
