The active synergy between astronomical observation, laboratory experiments and theoretical modelling has become vital in realising the full scientific yield of astronomy telescopes and space missions. Consequently, the field of Laboratory Astrophysics is now established as a fundamental element of modern astronomy. This meeting will bring together researchers in theoretical or experimental chemistry and physics with those in astronomy and space missions to discuss the latest challenges and recent successes in experimental and theoretical laboratory astrophysics and Astrochemistry. The website includes full details of the topics covered, and scientific fields in which abstracts are solicited. We anticipate that the meeting will reflect the depth, diversity and scientific excellence of this field, and encourage you to register, and submit an abstract, as soon as possible.
