Meeting Purpose

The focus of the meeting is on current and forthcoming laboratory studies for ground- and spaced-based astronomical observations from the near infrared (NIR) to the far ultraviolet (FUV). The role of atomic and molecular processes in astrophysical and atmospheric environments, from the solar system to the high redshift universe, will be discussed, as well as future needs for laboratory studies, developments in observational capabilities, and advances in computational astrophysics. Laboratory studies here is meant to include experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations.

The purpose of the workshop, the 7th in the series sponsored by the Southeast Laboratory Astrophysics Community (SELAC), is to focus on the exciting research ongoing and forthcoming in laboratory studies for astrophysical applications. The goal of the workshop is to bring together atomic, molecular, and chemical physicists; laboratory astrophysicists; astronomers; and astrophysical modelers to exchange needs, to highlight recent advances, and to look toward future progress motivated by space-based and ground-based observations.

The meeting will consist of 23 invited talks and a poster session. Details can be found on the workshop website for travel and accommodations. Please, register for the meeting through the website. You are requested to enter the title and abstract for your presentation (invited talk or poster) in the registration form.

There is no registration fee.

SELAC's purpose is to promote astronomy, astrophysics, and laboratory astrophysics in the region and more broadly. See our website for further details about SELAC and our past workshops.
