Welcome

Dear Colleagues

It is a great pleasure for the board of the AMOP Division of the EPS, and for the organizing committee, to invite you to participate in the 11th European Conference on Atoms, Molecules and Photons, which takes place at Aarhus University, Denmark, 24th - 28th June 2013.

The scientific programme will cover a variety of topics of contemporary interest to the AMO community, and we are delighted to present a series of plenary lectures by internationally renowned experts.

The organizing committee cordially invites anyone with an interest in atoms, molecules and photons. We hope you will enrich the conference by participating and sharing your latest knowledge and experiences with us, thereby contributing to a rewarding conference.

Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of approximately 300,000. The culture is lively and young, mainly due to the city’s large student population (approx. 30,000).

Aarhus is an old city, but still young at heart! The city was founded by the Vikings as an open trading post at the mouth of the river. Aarhus is an educational and cultural centre and its soul is a charming blend, combining the atmospheres of a provincial town and an active city, which will make you feel welcome and at home. Scattered around the city you will find many restaurants, bars and cafes, many of which are located by the river and suitable for all budgets.

Aarhus offers many attractions – such as the open-air museum “The Old Town”, Marselisborg Castle (Queen Margrethe II’s summer residence) and the Aros art museum. Discover the delights for yourself. Most things are within walking distance, the city of Aarhus is the place where every wish can be fulfilled in fascinating and inspiring surroundings.

Ideally situated in a bay, fringed by beaches, forests and lush scenery, yet bustling with life, Aarhus offers an inspiring setting for the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to Aarhus.

On behalf of the local organizing committee,

Lars H. Andersen
