Scope

In keeping the tradition of the ISSPIC conference, the 19th symposium will be devoted to overview of new results, emerging trends and perspectives pertaining to the physics and chemistry of clusters, that play an important role for understanding the matter at the nanoscale. The conference will provide individuals with an opportunity and an interdisciplinary forum for presentation and discussion on the latest fundamental and methodological aspects as well as application and technologically oriented developments.
