Welcome to the 20th International Conference on Atomic Processes in Plasmas. APIP 2019 will be held on the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

The APiP meetings started in 1977 as the American Physical Society (APS) Topical Conferences. However, since 2007 the APiP conferences has been referred to as "International", to better reflect the true nature of the meeting. More information on the history of the APiP conference series is avialable from the NIST Physical Measurement Laboratory pages.

Main Topics

The APiP conference focuses on atomic processes that are involved in the study of various plasmas over a wide range of densities and temperatures (eV to a few keVs).

The topics will include, in particular:

  • Astrophysical plasmas
  • Fundamental Data and Modeling
  • High Energy Density Plasmas
  • Low Temperature and Industrial Plasmas
  • Magnetic-Fusion Plasmas
  • Measurements of Atomic Processes
  • Powerful Light Sources (XFEL, etc.)
  • Small-scale Plasmas (table-top lasers, EBITs, etc.)
  • Warm Dense Matter

The APiP 2019 scientific program consists of invited talks, oral contributions, and posters (up to 4'×7').
