ICAP 2010
22nd International Conference on Atomic Physics

25-30 July 2010
Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, Australia

The 22nd International Conference on Atomic Physics will be held in the city of Cairns, in Tropical North Queensland, Australia. Following the tradition of ICAP, the conference will present an outstanding program of invited speakers covering the most recent subjects in the field of atomic physics, such as precision measurement, atomic clocks, quantum information, trapped ions, quantum optics and cavity QED, Bose gases, Fermi gases, optical lattices, cold molecules, mesoscopic quantum systems and ultrafast phenomena. Contributed papers will be presented in active poster sessions.

Cairns is a tropical city of about 140,000 people close to the Great Barrier Reef, the Atherton Tableland and the World Heritage rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation.
