VUV-XIII continues a series that began in 1962. The most recent meetings
have been held in San Francisco
(1998), Tokyo (1995), Paris (1992) and Honolulu (1989). The conference
encompasses all theoretical and experimental studies of the interaction
of ultraviolet and soft x-ray radiation with matter over a photon-energy
range from 5 eV to several keV. Relevant areas of research include atomic
and molecular physics, surface and materials sciences, and the novel instrumentation
required to conduct such research. The major tools of investigation such
as synchrotron radiation, lasers, laboratory sources, and plasma sources
are important topics, as are the associated optics, technology, and analytical
Time and Place
The Thirteenth International Conference on Vacuum Ultraviolet Radiation
Physics (VUV-XIII) will be held on July 23-27, 2001, in Trieste (Italy)
at the "Stazione Marittima", Trieste's Congress Center located on the
sea front facing the Adriatic and within five minutes walking distance
from the city center. The conference will be hosted by Sincrotrone
Trieste , the Italian National Institute for the Physics of Matter
(INFM) and the Consiglio Nazionale delle
The late July weather is generally very nice and ideal for visiting Italy.
