ISACC 2017

Welcome to the eight International Symposium
"Atomic Cluster Collisions"

ISACC is a biennial conference that focuses on following subjects

Structure and dynamics of atomic clusters and nanoparticles
Structure and dynamics of biomolecules
Cluster structure and dynamics on a surface
Cluster-molecule interactions, reactivity and nanocatalysis
Clustering in systems of various degrees of complexity
Clusters and biomolecules in external fields: electric, magnetic, laser etc.
Electron and photon cluster collisions
Ion-cluster collisions
Collision processes with biomolecules
Cluster and bimolecular research with Free Electron Lasers


The eighth International Symposium "Atomic Cluster Collisions" will take place in October 2017 in Varadero, Cuba. The venue of the meeting will be announced later. The ISACC 2017 will be organized by the Cuban Physical Society and the Instituto Superior de Tecnologías y Ciencias Aplicadas (InSTEC), Havana, Cuba.
ISACC started as an international symposium on atomic cluster collisions in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2003. The second ISACC was held at the GSI, Darmstadt, Germany in 2007. Both first and second symposia were satellites of the International Conferences on Photonic Electronic and Atomic Collisions (ICPEAC). The third ISACC has returned to St. Petersburg, Russia in 2008 and was organized as a separate conference. The fourth ISACC took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2009, USA; the fifth ISACC - in Berlin, Germany in 2011; the sixth ISACC - in Wuhan, China in 2013; the seventh - in Madrid, Spain in 2015. All four were satellite of the ICPEAC.
The ISACC 2017 will promote the growth and exchange of scientific information on the structure, properties and dynamics of complex nuclear, atomic, molecular, cluster, nanoscopic and biological systems studied primarily by means of photonic, electronic, heavy particle and atomic collisions. In the symposium, particular attention will be devoted to dynamical phenomena, many-body effects taking place in clusters, nanostructures, molecular and biological systems, which include problems of fusion and fission, fragmentation, collective electron excitations, phase transitions, radiation damage and many more. Both experimental and theoretical aspects of cluster physics uniquely placed between nuclear physics on one hand and atomic, molecular and solid state physics on the other will be subject of the symposium.
