In 2001 the EPSRC organised a Forward Look at Atomic and Molecular Physics Research in the UK. The final report (now available on the EPSRC Physics Programme web site at http://www.epsrc.ac.uk ) stated that in order to reintegrate the UK atomic and molecular physics community, and to promote alliances with other related communities, a national conference in AM and related physics should be reinstated. In addition it it suggested that a Summer School in Atomic and Molecular Physics for all newly starting PhD students would be highly beneficial in addressing quality issues, and offer excellent use of advanced teaching resources.

The Institute of Physics Division of Atomic Molecular Optical and Plasma Physics (DAMOPP) has therefore now undertaken the task of organising a regular National meeting and summer school.

Collingwood College is located on South Road, slightly further uphill from the Department of Physics, which is located in the main Science Campus of Durham University. Lectures will be held at the Department of Physics, and various local maps can be found at http://www.dur.ac.uk/physics/contact/location/ . Registration, poster sessions and all meals will take place at Collingwood College, and detailed information on how to get there can be found at http://www.collconf.co.uk/findus.php .
