    Poznań is one of the largest Polish cities situated almost in the middle on the line connecting Warsaw and Berlin, on the Warta River. Poznań is the capital, economic and cultural center of the region of Poland called Wielkopolska (Greater Poland). It has almost 20 universities and colleges (academies) and a large proportion of the population are students, which makes the atmosphere in the bars and on the streets youthful and lively. The city is well known for its beautiful old part. More information about Poznań you can find here.

The Workshop will take place at the Faculty of Physics of AMU in Poznań-Morasko, situated about 10 km north of the Poznań city center (see the City Scheme )

Traditionally the Workshop has been devoted to the application of lasers in atomic nuclear research. Since 2009 the subject was broadened, combining two key technologies of modern research: lasers and ion storage techniques. This combination has opened the event to the new research opportunities for investigations in atomic and nuclear physics, for detection of quantum effects in particle ensembles as well as for precision spectroscopy especially for testing fundamental interactions and symmetries. The Poznań workshops have always gathered prominent scientists across a number of related fields: experts in laser techniques and their application in atomic and nuclear physics, accelerators, storage rings and ion traps, experimentalists and theoreticians from atomic and nuclear physics. As a result, the number of the participants has increased substantially over the years including many leading physicists and young researchers.
           The topics to be discussed are:

      Spectroscopic routes to heavy and superheavy elements
      Nuclear properties by use of laser and storing techniques:
           - spins, moments, charge radii, masses and nuclear half lives
      Hyperfine fields in simple and complex atoms
      Tests of fundamental interactions and symmetries by atomic-physics techniques
      Production and spectroscopy of exotic atoms
      Trace analysis by nuclear fingerprints
      Development and applications of laser ion source; production and use of pure
           isomeric beams using laser ionization
      Development and applications of polarized radioactive beams
      Cooling and trapping techniques for radioactive beams
      Development and applications of gas catchers, ion guides and gas-jets
      Powerful pulsed lasers in nuclear research
