8th Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals
July 26-31, 2010, Chernogolovka, Moscow region, Russia

Conference Info

Since 1995, Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC) has been the important international forum for presenting new results on physics and chemistry of atomic and molecular solids such as rare gas solids, hydrogens, nitrogen, oxygen, methanes, helium isotopes, water ice, etc..

The scope of CC is wide, including, but not limited to, films, nanoscale systems, charged species in cryocrystals, spectroscopy of cryocrystals, ultra-low temperature and high-pressure studies, matrix isolation in cryocrystals, ultrafast dynamics in crystals, order-disorder phenomena, technological applications and instrumentation.

We encourage submissions of papers to CC-2010 that report on advances in these core areas, as well as those peripherial to them.

The CC-2010 conference organized by the Institute of Solid State Physics RAS, RAS Council on Low Temperature Physics, and RAS Council on Condensed Matter Physics will be held from July 26 to July 31 in Chernogolovka, Moscow region , Russia.

The present conference CC-2010 is a continuation of the series of international conferences which started with meeting in Almaty (Alma-Ata) Kazakhstan. The next two conferences took place in Poland, in September 1997 in Polanica Zdroj and in August 2000 in Szklarska Poreba. In 2002 the conference was held in Friesing (Germany), in 2004 - in Wroclaw (Poland), in 2006 - in Kharkov (Ukraine), and the last 7-th Conference was organized in 2008 in Wroclaw (Poland).

The general approach of the Conference aims at organizing a forum for exchange ideas on various aspects of physical, chemical and technological properties of solidified gases, and gathering together the best experts in the field. Please check the CC-2010 home page regularly for updates on conference details, submission requirements, etc..

A few Public Lectures are planned to be presented at the CC-2010. The meeting is open to scientists regardless of nationality and citizenship. It is expected that at least 50% of the attendees should arrive from outside the host country.
