Atomic Physics 2023

International Workshop on Atomic Physics
27 November - 1 December 2023

with focus days on

“Research Highlights in the Eyes of Editors”

Editors handle many manuscripts each year and are expected to be impartial. Yet, what are the papers they love to have published in the last year? If they are active researchers, what is their own research agenda? The focus of this year’s Atomic Physics Workshop in Dresden gives you the unique opportunity to get answers to these questions with Editors of Physical Review A  inviting authors of some of their favorite recent papers. They will also invite contributions from author teams who have published with PRA for the first time to widen the scope of the work presented. Finally, some of the editors will present their own research. The invited talks will be organized in sessions covering all topics of PRA, optical phenomena, ultrafast and ultracold phenomena, collisional phenomena and quantum science & technologies.

As in the past, the Focus Days will cover Wednesday to Friday (Nov 29 - Dec 1) and  Monday to Wednesday we will have talks from all of Atomic Physics as well as a joint poster session on Tuesday and eventually Thursday evening. We will select up to 8 of the registered contributions for additional invited talks.
