Since 1995, Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC) has been an 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-2018 that report on advances in these core areas, as well as those peripherial to them.
The present conference CC-2018 is a continuation of the series 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) and in 2004 came back to Wroclaw (Poland). The next editions were held in Kharkov (Ukraine) in 2006, than again in Wroclaw (Poland) in 2008, Chernogolovka (Russia) in 2010, Odessa (Ukraine) in 2012, Almaty (Kazakhstan) in 2014. The last meeting was held in 2016 in Turku (Finland) .
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.
