The scientific program will consist of Plenary Lectures (1 hour, including discussion), Progress Reports (30 minutes, including discussion), and Special Reports (15 minutes, including discussion) selected for oral presentation from the contributed abstracts. The contributed posters will be presented in dedicated Poster Sessions on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Plenary Lectures are of general interest to all participants. Progress Reports and Special Reports describe recent work in particular subfields, and will be arranged in two parallel sessions. Special Reports are short presentations on the most recent advances.

A Public Lecture is foreseen and scheduled on the evening of Thursday 25 July. It will be given by Philippe Fleury, an eminent specialist of the antiquity, and Sophie Madeleine from the Interdisciplinary Center of Virutal Reality (CIREVE) of the University of Caen Normandy. The lecture is open to conference participants, accompanying persons, and the general public.

Following the successful action initiated in the XXVIII ICPEAC, a set of Tutorial Lectures will take place on Tuesday 23 July at the downtown Campus of the University of Caen Normandie. The lectures (1h30) will give an interactive and pedagogical account among the most recent advances in the field of photonic, electronic and atomic collisions. Master and PhD students as well as young researchers (PhD + 4 years), registered in ICPEAC, are welcome to attend the Tutorials without extra fee (including one night of accommodation, lunch and coffee-breaks), in the limit of 200 participants, on a "first come, first served" basis. A reduced fee will be applied beyond this limit. Note that these Tutorials will be accessible to any attendee who is interested in, at the same reduced fee.

A detailed Conference Program and schedule is available here. The final Conference Program, including abstracts of the invited talks (Tutorials, Plenary Lectures and Progress Reports) together with the synopsis of the Special Reports and a list of regular and post-deadline abstracts (accepted before 15 June, 2019) will be published in the ICPEAC 2019 Conference Handbook given to the participants at the registration desk. In addition, all those accepted abstracts will be available online in a Book of Abstracts. The accepted post-post-deadline abstracts will be provided via a printed addendum to the participants and could be presented as poster upon poster-board availability during the conference.


Organized on July 23 at the University of Caen Normandie, three tutorials are opened for Master and PhD students, as well as postdocs coming from all over the world.

These tutorials are free of charge on a "first come, first served basis" for Master and PhD students, as well as postdocs coming from all over the world, in the limit of 200 participants. Beyond this threshold, a reduced fee of 20€ will cover the lunch and access to the tutorials. A room in a student dormitory will be available at an additional cost of 35€. If needed, the bus transportation from Caen to Deauville after the tutorial will be provided at a cost of 8€.

Each accepted contribution will be presented in the form of a poster in one of 5 Poster Sessions, each covering the full range of topics within the conference. The sessions will take place in the Tennis halls 1&2 on Wednesday 24 July, Thursday 25 July, Monday 29 July in the afternoon and on Friday 26 July and Tuesday 30 July in the morning (see Program at a glance here)

Sponsors booths will be also installed in these halls. Coffee breaks will be served and there will be informal discussion spaces available in these sessions, which represent the major forum for the presentation of new research and discussions which arise.

Each poster is limited to A0 size (841mm wide by 1189mm high), portrait format. Posters may be presented only if the corresponding abstract has been accepted and if at least one of the authors listed has registered for the conference.

Registered posters (including post-deadline sent before 15 June 2019) have been assigned a day for presentation and the board at which it should be displayed – an email was sent to the authors and the information is available in the "online Conference Program". A few "Post-post-deadline" posters (arriving after 15 June, 2019) might be considered for presentation provided that space is available.

Be prepared to appoint the “Best Poster of the Day”! A Poster Prize for each of the 5 Poster Sessions will be awarded just after a Plenary Session.
