POSMOL 2019
XX International Workshop on Low-Energy Positron and Positronium Physics
XXI International Symposium on Electron-Molecule Collisions and Swarms
18 - 20 JULY 2019
Belgrade, Serbia

Welcome

Dear colleagues, it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the POSMOL2019. The conference will be held at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Belgrade, Serbia, on July 18-20, 2019, starting with the Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening 17th July. Following the conference, on the 21st July, 2019, one-day workshop will be held in honor of the retirement of Professor Zoran Lj. Petrović.

This will be the 8th joint meeting of the International Workshop on Low-Energy Positron and Positronium Physics and the International Symposium on Electron-Molecule Collisions and Swarms, satellite meetings of the International Conference on Photonic, Electronic, and Atomic Collisions (ICPEAC), that will be held in Deauville, France, on July 24-30, 2019.

POSMOL2019 will gather scientists from all over the world working in the fields of positron, positronium and antiproton interactions with atoms, molecules and solid surfaces, and related topics. The second major topic will be electron interactions with molecules in both gaseous and condensed phases as well as electron swarms. Particular topics include studies of electron and positron interactions with biomolecules, electron induced surface chemistry and studies of collisional plasmas.

POSMOL2019 will be organized by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) and Institute of Physics, Belgrade (IPB). We hope you will equally enjoy the scientific presentations and discussions together with the unique atmosphere of Belgrade.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Belgrade during the summer of 2019.
