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.

Public Lectures are foreseen and scheduled on the evening of Wednesday and Thursday 24 & 25 July. One will be given by Philippe Fleury, eminent specialist of the antiquity, the other by the French astronaut, Thomas Pesquet (to be confirmed). The lectures are 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 invited to attend the Tutorials without extra fee (including one night of accommodation, lunch and coffee-breaks). Note that these Tutorials will be accessible to any attendee who is interested in.


Program at a glance

Special Reports

The ICPEAC Committees (Executive and General) will select from the submitted abstracts several contributions to be presented orally as Special Reports. The authors of abstracts selected for Special Reports will be notified in April 2019.

Poster Sessions

The Poster Sessions will take place in the Thalasso Halls at the convention venue. There will be a total of five Poster Sessions, in three afternoon sessions (Wednesday, Thursday and Monday) and two morning sessions (Friday and Tuesday).

The winner of the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) Physics will be invited to give a Progress Report (30 minutes, including discussion) in the morning Plenary Session of Monday 29 July.

ICPEAC Open Business Meeting

All ICPEAC attendees are invited to participate in the open ICPEAC business meeting at 12:30 on Tuesday 30 July. This meeting includes the ICPEAC treasurer’s and secretary’s report, a presentation of new ICPEAC committee members, a presentation on ICPEAC 2021 in Ottawa, and general information on other future ICPEAC meetings.

Executive & General Committee Meetings

The Executive Committee will convene on Tuesday 23 July at 19:00 in a room of the conference venue that will be specified later. The General Committee of ICPEAC will meet on Thursday 25 July from 12:30 to 14:00 also at the conference venue (lunch will be served). The current members of the Executive and General Committees are listed here. The new members will also be invited to the lunch meeting on Thursday.

Final Conference Program

A detailed Conference Program and schedule will be available in May 2019 at the Conference Website. 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 accepted Posters will be published in the ICPEAC 2019 Conference Handbook given to the participants at the registration desk. In addition, all the accepted abstracts will be available online in a Book of Abstracts.


Organized on July 23 at the University of Caen Normandie, three tutorials will be opened and free of charge for Master and PhD students, as well as postdocs coming from all over the world. Note that these tutorials will be accessible to anyone who is interested.
