Ceaseless pursuit of diverse light sources is opening up new frontiers of Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) science. Atomic and molecular dynamics is being explored at the femto and near attosecond time scale. Responses of atoms and molecules under the influence of intense laser fields have been attracting vigorous attention and interest from the viewpoint of their control. Laser cooling techniques are enriching our understanding of coherent matter waves. Manipulation of quantum mechanical states with atoms and photons has not only led to the creation and control of unusual quantum states but also it is altering our notion of information processing. Ever brighter synchrotron light sources are exposing the details of electronic dynamics. In the backdrop of this rapidly changing landscape in AMO science, the Seminar brings together experimental and theoretical scientists working on light source development, atomic and molecular processes in intense laser fields, coherent optical phenomena and quantum information, and related many-body phenomena, etc., to share and exchange new ideas in the emerging fields, and provides opportunities for future collaboration. The participation will be limited to about 70 scientists due to time and space constraints.

The Seminar will begin with a reception on the evening of Thursday, January 20 and will continue till Sunday afternoon, January 23, for a 2 and 1/2 day program of invited papers and poster sessions. The Seminar will be held at Shonan Village International Conference Center situated 50 km south of Tokyo. Close to the historical city of Kamakura where the Shogunate government took office in the 12th century, the site is reachable in about 1 and 1/2 hours by train and bus from Tokyo, and offers a suitable atmosphere for scientific discussions.
